[resolved] CAPTCHA Not Working (4 posts)

    Hello. I already read http://wordpress.org/support/topic/147524?replies=4 (Contact Form 7) where help is given on Captcha. But, I'm still experiencing problems.

    I made my entire Contact Form 7 folder writeable and readable (777). My server management company has told me that the GD Library is installed.

    However, when I put CAPTCHA in my form I receive the following error on the page that should be displaying my form:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function imagettftext() in /home2/cwf/public_html/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/captcha/captcha.php on line 60

    This is the page I want the form at.
    Contact Us Form. It is part of my blog, the CWF Game Cast.

    Any help is appreciated.

    The PHP installed on your server might not support GD or FreeType. You should ask your server admin to see the error message.

    I spoke with my server admin and they said this requires FreeType, not GD. So, if others encounter the same issue they need to make sure FreeType is installed on the server.

    The CAPTCHA seems to be working properly now.

    You can see it in action at CWF Game Cast Contact Us
