Really Simple CAPTCHA
Why is Captcha temporary directory missing or unwritable? (1 post)

    Hello everybody,

    I've been trying to setup Really Simple Captcha on my WP installation for some time now, without success.
    Contact Form 7 keeps telling me that the temporary Captcha folder is either not existing or not writable.
    My WP uploads folder is different from default and has the name "uploads1".
    That's why I added

    define('WPCF7_CAPTCHA_TMP_DIR', 'wp-content/uploads1/wpcf7_captcha');

    after a group of other define tags in the wp-config.php file. My WP installation is located in the root (html) folder of my ftp host.
    I tried to manually create the wpcf7_captcha folder within the uploads1 folder. Both folders are chmoded 777. phpinfo says that GD and FreeType are enabled.

    I don't know what the problem could be. Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance!
