    I tried to use your guestbok but it is impossible to enter a message,
    I always get the antispam error : "Wrong letter-figure combination!".

    I verified the letter/number combinaison and capital letters.
    I have the rigjts 644 on the gotcha.png and xfiles.ttf.

    Please help.

    - Wich version of WordPress and PHP do you have in use?
    - Does affected this problem both version of antispam? (image & math.)
    - Install http://www.xampp.org/, WP and DMSGuestbook on your local machine and try it again.

    i always get the error message with image & math.
    Actually, yesterday i tried, got the error message. Then i had dinner and when i came back, just pressed f5 and it worked. That's the only time i added a message to the guestbook.

    wordpress : 2.5
    php : 4.4.3
    mysql : 5.0.45

    I use my isp's website access called Free (France).

    Thank you for your help

    This could be a problem with sessions of your ISP, do you have tried with xampp on your local machine?

    I tested your guestbook with another Web Hosting Service everything work fine.
    there is indeed a problem with my ISP (Free in France) but i don't know the answer.

    Thanks for your help and if you have a solution for my ISP, i buy it :)

    I don't know if this will come through since the topic is "resolved" but:
    I can't get anti-spam to work, either image or math

    Using Comcast as ISP
    Using "Startlogic" as Web hosting service
    MySQL ver 5.045
    PHP ver 5.2.2

    Fails with Firefox or I.E.

    email me to try site, needs login. patphillips@comcast.net

    Hi Pat
    It's weird but good news: The next version of DMSGuestbook will have an other anti-spam authentication method, this should solve all your problems.

    We stay in touch and thank you for your feedback,

    Below is my knowledgebase from Startlogic:

    To run PHP sessions, include the following code at the top of any PHP script that uses sessions:

    session_save_path("your home directory path"/cgi-bin/tmp);

    * Log into the PHP Scripting page for actual path to your home directory. Replace "your home directory path" with the path shown.
    * Set session_save_path to a directory within your cgi-bin: either /cgi-bin/tmp as in the example above or another directory as long as the absolute path is correct.

    For details on how PHP sessions work, review PHP's Session Handling Functions.

    For a similar application my code line is:

    Note I changed both the form and checking *.php files.
