Captcha Test Works Perfectly but Captcha Fails on Login Form (10 posts)

    I don't know why SI Captcha does not work on my WP 3.4.1.

    It works on my other web sites on another web host but not on web sites that use a particular web host of mine.

    You see, the captcha test works fine but it refuses to work on my login form.

    I will upload links soon. I have to FTP to manually delete the plugin or I can't login to WordPress.

    SI Captcha test link: http://www.mavericksalesletters.com/wp-content/plugins/si-captcha-for-wordpress/captcha/test/index.php

    Following the instructions here:

    1. I can confirm that my blog and site urls are the same.

    2. I do not see this folder: /wp-content/plugins/si-captcha-for-wordpress/captcha-secureimage

    Where is the folder that SI Captcha uses to store the captcha images?

    Thanks in advance.

    Not sure why it works now but here's what I did.

    I manually removed the SI options in the options table and deleted the plugin.

    Then I reinstalled it and it is working now.

    Any idea how to fix this bug?

    I am not sure if it is a web server issue or not because the captcha test script works fine.

    Hi, same for me :(
    I have 2 sites where this is happening and the symptoms are identical, all the suggested things of what could be wrong seem to be OK? The Captcha is working fine on the sites 'contact' forms and 'register' form, but on the login form the image will not show?

    Any help would be great, this occurred when I updated some plugins today -
    si-contact form
    Better WP Security

    I am hoping if there is some way of getting into the Admin to correct things?

    Removed plugin via FTP for now to get access to admin, not ideal but will do for now.

    I suspect that it could be Better WP Security that is causing this problem but I am not 100% certain. Probably one of the tweaks is causing this.

    Better WP Security adds a tweaks in your .htaccess causing the problem with SI Captcha

    In your. Htaccess Find this line

    RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^.*(bash|git|hg|log|svn|swp|cvs) [NC,OR]

    and then put him

    #RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^.*(bash|git|hg|log|svn|swp|cvs) [NC,OR]

    see if it works, work for me
