3.0.8 RC1 recaptcha change

Post by oddfish » Sun Nov 14, 2010 4:23 am

Code: Select all

theme : 'clean',
The default is not so good for darker styles as the background blends the darker text image (http://www.google.com/recaptcha/api/img/clean/logo.png and http://www.google.com/recaptcha/api/img ... agline.png).

Also too, when already using the recaptcha plugin, the change nulls the http://www.google.com/recaptcha/api/img/red/refresh.gif and http://www.google.com/recaptcha/api/img/red/sprite.png by using the /clean images instead.

What can be done to bypass this default if already using the recaptcha plugin and/or darker styles other than ignoring the template change?

cheers,
oddfish.

I don't see the issue here or maybe I just do not understand it. prosilver and subsilver2 are both not dark styles. Authors of dark styles can do whatever they want to their templates anyway, so they can just leave it at the default or change it to whatever they like.

Indeed style authors do as they please - an improvement that hinders inheriting styles and existing darker styles. How would new stylers or existing authors (not all as some no doubt will understand the code) know to remove that default entry (remember it is in the code changes to bring the template files up to 3.0.8)?

What happens when a board owner changes the captcha to use the plugin using darker styles - how will they find that?

Not really my issue, simply a concern for future behaviour.

In order to edit the style of the recaptcha box you must edit 'style' the following in code within /styles/style/template/captcha_recaptcha.html

Code: Select all

var RecaptchaOptions = {
		lang : '{LA_RECAPTCHA_LANG}',
		theme : 'style',
The styles available to use are located at http://code.google.com/apis/recaptcha/d ... ation.html
Replace 'style' with the appropriate name of the style that is available i.e red,white,clean, or blackglass.

Should this not be added to the ACP so the forum owner can decide what style they want?

It could be added to the same page that you enter the reCaptcha keys.
