1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

captcha not working

Postby primozs » Mon Nov 18, 2013 3:01 pm


I have problems with getting captcha for the registration working. I have configured the captcha as following:

captcha On
captcha_on_register On
captcha_on_comments Off
captcha_on_mailinglist Off
font_location D:/inetpub/wwwroot/Obzornik/Gabriola.tff
recaptcha Off

If I go to the registration, there is no captcha.

I have OJS 2.4.2, PHP 5.5.5, IIS 6.0.

Any hint how to proceed?

Regards, Primož
