Capcha/Visual Confirmation Code appears as 'X'

Post by Hands »

Version 3.0.3 - Having an issue where the visual confirmation/Captcha only appears as a broken 'X', as if the image won't load. Reading through the forums it seem others have had this, but the solutions haven't worked for us.

> Visual confirmations is enabled. (guest and registrations)
> GD Captcha - have tried both yes and no
> GD Captcha Foreground noise - have tried both yes and no
> GD Cpatcha noise x/y axis - have tried values between 0 and 40
> Have tried Reset/Preview of the visual confirmation but captcha never appears.
> Have tried on 3 different browsers - but captcha doesn't appear

Any suggestions?

Check phpinfo to see if GD support is enabled. When running phpinfo (ACP -> General -> Quick Access -> PHP Information) look for the following section:

If you have ever edited your language files, read: viewtopic.php?p=196576#p196576

Corrupting ./language/en/common.php can do this.
