Hi bubbleBoy,

You should modify the config.inc.php file in order to enable the Captcha function. Make sure that font is installed on your system. This the code from the file

Code: Select all
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; Captcha Settings ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

[captcha]

; Whether or not to enable Captcha features
captcha = on

; Whether or not to use Captcha on user registration
captcha_on_register = on

; Whether or not to use Captcha on user comments
captcha_on_comments = off

; Font location for font to use in Captcha images
font_location = /usr/share/fonts/truetype/freefont/FreeSerif.ttf


Regards,

Adam

Hi bubbleBoy,

Ask your admin whether font is installed on the server and if it supports the IMLIB library. I hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Adam
