[Resolved] Captcha image not loading

  • No Worries!

    For reference: my wp-content file wasn’t writable, thus wp-content/really-simple-captcha/tmp could not be written to.
    I made wp-content and wp-content/really-simple-captcha/tmp writable, and now it loads 🙂

    Knew it was something simple I had overlooked >.<

    I’m having an issue with the captcha image not showing as well, but it doesn’t appear to be a permissions issue on the directory. On initial page load, the image appears, then disappears when the retina.js kicks in and tacks an @2x on to the end of the filename in the link pointing at the captcha image. There of course is no image by that name in the directory so only the alt tag appears. Is there a way to suppress this behaviour? It works fine on my dev server (local machine) but when it’s posted to a live site this behaviour happens.

    So, i have same proble.

    I use Firebug:
    “NetworkError: 404 Not Found – http://192.168.200.5/citrus/wp-content/uploads/wpcf7_captcha/1600145240.png

    The file there is in the directory.

    The permissions of
    wp-content
    uploads
    wpcf7_captcha
    is 775.

    How can help me?

    Some servers require a bit more permission, from what I’ve read, try changing just wp-content and wp-content/really-simple-captcha/tmp to 777 instead. Don’t forget to always CTRL+F5 to clear your cache.

    I had this problem too, using WordPress 3.8.1. WordPress plugin directory says this plugin is only compatible up to 3.6.1.

    However, I found my problem could also be solved by altering the folder permissions AND ownership. In my case, I had to delete the /uploads/wpcf7_captcha that had been automatically created, and re-create it manually using FTP. I then set the permissions to 0777 and it works fine now.
    Hope this helps someone.
