[Plugin: SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam] Captcha Phrase Not Showing Up

    Hi,

    I have used SI Captcha on quite a few websites and I know it works like a charm every time. Recently, I tried it on http://technopedia.info/tech. It installed fine but the captcha phrase is not visible. I don’t find it anywhere and all the settings and the folder is chmod 777 as well.

    I was not sure if it was installed, so I tried to comment but it said that I have not keyed in the right captcha phrase. So, I know that everything seems to be working fine but the phrase is not showing up.

    Thanks in advance!

    I need to see a page with the problem on it to be able to possible tell you what is wrong.

    Do I need to make any changes to the Plug in files and match the settings on the URL? I’m sorry, just installed the plug in today and my PHP is newer the 5.0
    While testing the Plug in I get this error:
    “The requested URL /wp-content/plugins/si-captcha-for-wordpress/captcha-secureimage/test/index.php was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.”

    Thanks

    No you do NOT need to change the plugin files.

    Tell me what these settings are because one of them is not correct:
    Check the WP settings in Admin – Settings – General
    WordPress address (URL)
    Blog address (URL)

    What exactly did you change it to? I might make a FAQ page.

    Because I have WP installed on my web host
    WordPress Address (URL): http://kntmendoza.net/workshop1
    Site Address (URL): http://www.kntmendoza.net

    Made the change on the WordPress Address to the full name (www) so now both look as follows.

    Mike,

    It’s all in place, everything that is mentioned on the FAQ page. But, it still doesn’t show up.

    Other observations:

    1. I try to post a comment, and it says that I haven’t entered a captcha.
    2. I am still getting spam comments.

    Abhinav,

    I recommend Akismet, it is compatible, it compliments my plugin. But other anti-spam plugins can cause this.

    Maybe another plugin is conflicting.
    Look on the Admin – Plugins – menu.
    Temporarily Disable (not uninstall) all your other plugins.
    Does it work now? If yes, Activate the plugins one by one to determine
    which one conflicts. Which plugin was causing it?

    —————–

    It could be the theme you are using is causing it…
    Do this as a test:
    In Admin, click on Appearance, Themes.
    Temporarily change your theme to the “WordPress Default” theme, or “Twenty Ten” (default for WP 3.0).
    It does not cause any harm to temporarily change the theme and change back.
    Does it work properly now?
    If it does then the theme you are using is the cause.

    Mike,

    I think it’s the theme. I ran a preview with twenty ten, and captcha showed up.

    I guess I need to change my theme.

    Any idea how comments are still getting posted given that captcha is not showing up, and people cannot post comments through my website?
