It does, look in the install file for the DIY instructions.

DIY Instructions wrote:Go to the Administration Control Panel > General > Board Configuration > CAPTCHA module settings. Configure the Sortables CAPTCHA and set it as default.

I have been in every file on this download and I can't find instructions. I have no programming background...

You should extract the ZIP-package, and then open the install.xml in your browser to see the instructions. ;)

Okay, this was my first mod-install ever. But I think I did something wrong.

I've got everything within the ACP right. It all works- I can even configure it. However, for some reason it doesn't show in the registration page.

Okay that's my problem. I can't.

The prosilver doesn't have a js folder in the packet. It has a js file. Because there's a js style, it won't let me create the folder.

How do I go about this?

Manually add the folder by FTP.

It won't let me because of the js file that already exists. It's a "text/x-generic" file. But because of it's name I'm not allowed to create the folder, even through CyberDuck.

I guess I'm asking if it's okay to rename that one js file (the text one). I'm terrified of screwing something up as my knowledge is so limited. I don't know what's linked to that file that may no longer work if I edit it.

Then delete the js files, create the folder en re-upload them again.
If you rename them, you should also rename them in captcha_sortables.html and refresh the template @ ACP > Styles > Templates > [refresh]

Ah we're misunderstanding eachother =/ Allow me to use images to reiterate my problem (which could easily NOT be a problem - I just don't want to mess my board up as I won't have the knowledge to fix it).

Because of this file here (and I don't know where it came from), I get this error when I try to create a folder:

I use CyberDuck as a quick FTP. It doesn't give me a warning - instead, it simply refuses the command. My host is Siteground (if that means anything to you, not sure).

Ask Siteground to remove that strange js file for you. Then create the folder with your FTP program (not via cpanel). ;)

Fixed! Required a reinstall of the board (to clean out junk), but just tested the captcha and it's beautiful!
