Sortables not showing in Spambot Countermeasures phpBB 3.1

by Frib99 » Thu Jan 01, 2015 3:45 pm

I did a fresh install of phpBB 3.1.2 this morning and I am using the default template. I installed the sortables_captcha_plugin_1_0_5.zip into all correct directories. I am using the default style. No matter what, I cannot get the Sortables to show up under a plugin for the Spambot Countermeasures. The forum location is http://forums.alagorn.com . I was able to get this plugin working perfectly for my other forums, but they are running 3.0+ - this is a fresh copy of PHPBB with no modifications to the styles.

Any ideas?

Here you can find the extension (in development) for 3.1:

Hi Derky, doing this effectively nuked the board. I can't get into anything anymore. When going to the forum it is simply gone - blank, not even an <html> in there. I can't disable it because the admin stuff is gone. I've renamed the Derky directory, no go. It's just wiped out.

I will delete everything and re-install the whole board again later.

Any ideas on why this happened?

Hi Derky again - I found the download for 3.0.12 of PHPBB and I have installed that - along with the previous working copy of Sortables. All is working now correctly. Appreciate your help.

However be aware that all I did was create the directory /ext/derky/sortablescaptcha/ - placed the modification in there. Went to extensions and activated said extension. As soon as I did that - the board was wiped completely. Not one single thing worked - all came to a blank page no html.

When you get a white page, that means there is a (suppressed) PHP error. You can view the actual error by enabling PHP errors or looking in your Apache error log.

Did you by the way tried to delete the sortablescaptcha folder?
