Whenever someone tries to comment on my site, it always says "The
image code you have provided does not match the actual one. Hit the
'back' button of your browser and input the correct code please." even
though the code is correct. I tried reading all the other topics on
this but just didn't get it. Could someone explain it to me please?
Thanks!

Could you describe the situation,
1. what type of installation are you using
2. what are your site urls.
3. did you upgrade smth. e.g. browser, OS

I have a similar problem... except for me if my customer lives a
required field empty, they are given a page that tells them to hit the
back button to fill in the missing field. When you hit the back
button, you go back to the form you were filling out, with all the
fields filled in except the one you missed. Even the the CAPTCHA field
is filled in... The image has not changed. When you hit submit again
you get the message, "The image code you have provided does not match
the actual one. Hit the 'back' button of your browser and input the
correct code please." If you hit the reload image button, it does more
than reload the image... It reloads the whole page. So then you have
to refill in the form... WHAT A PAIN!

In the string for the reload, "<span style="visibility:show;" NOWRAP
id="protectwebform_reload_block">&nbsp; &nbsp;<a
id="protectwebform_link_reload" href="" title="Click here to reload
the image." onclick="return protectwebform_reload_image();"><img
src="http://www.protectwebform.com/images/reload.gif"
border=0></a></span>" it has an empty href... Is there a reason for
this?

Thanks for the help.

2 hafnerdesigns, try to use second html code, which is given on the
installation page. Last has a javascript automatic reload function.
This can help.

2 bernabauer,
Currently trying to find out what is wrong.

Oleg,

I am using the 2nd HTML script... However, if I keep the script where
you have it, then the images and box will not appear. If I move the
javascript up to where my form begins all is visible, but the reload
image button doesn't work right.

could you give me a link to your form please.

I turned of the SMART Captcha, because it was also giving the same
error message.

Any clue why this is happening?

2 bernabauer,
could you find the plugin file and chage the
"@file_get_contents" to "file_get_contents".
This will enable errors. Then try to submit the form.
If you see any warning or errors, then you might have this function
disabled by ISP, then I will try to fix this by adding additional
function.

Hi there again! Thanks for the tip! I use Dreamhost and they disabled
the file_get_contents command.

I changed this:

$protectwebformresult =
@file_get_contents(
"http://www.protectwebform.com/verify01?vui={$protectwebform_id}&vp={$protectwebform_passphrase}&ri="
.
urlencode($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']) . "&vs=" .
urlencode($_POST['protectwebformcode']));


to this:

$ch = curl_init();
$timeout = 5; // set to zero for no timeout
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_URL,
"http://www.protectwebform.com/verify01?vui={$protectwebform_id}&vp={$protectwebform_passphrase}&ri=".
urlencode($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']) . "&vs=" .
urlencode($_POST['protectwebformcode']));
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, $timeout);
$file_contents = curl_exec($ch);
curl_close($ch);
$protectwebformresult = $file_contents;

and now works like a charm! Thanks for the help!

hafnerdesigns,

I can see, you did some modifications to the code. The reload button
is not currently working at all, cause the javascript which must
reload the button is missed. If you remove javascript you must not
make this button visible, but you did: "visibility:show;"

Could you put the initial code which was given to you to the form
instead of current one, then I will be able to see what is wrong.
If you still have problems with new code, could you also tell me your
browser version, and OS version.

Oleg.

Oleg,

The java script is still there, just up a couple lines. If I put the
java script in the place that you have it, then the image and buttons
do not show up.
hafnerdesigns
2007-06-27 20:58:22
Oleg,

I have moved the JS down to where your script says it should be.. now
my images are invisible.

hafnerdesigns,
"If I put the
java script in the place that you have it, then the image and buttons
do not show up."

That is right behavior, cause you have smart captcha enabled.

If you want to desable it, log in to your account, go to "My
Verification Urls" and click "Disable Smart Captcha" under your
verification urls.

Oleg,

Thank you for clarifying that for me. I did not fully understand the
Smart Captcha. I will try the Smart Captcha first... However, if I do
disable the Smart Captcha, would I then have to remove the
javascript?

Heidi,

you do not need to remove javascript, otherwise reload button and
audio will stop working.

Hi I am having the same problem with the new captcha installation, no
matter which setup I use, the captcha always returns the denial
message.

If I can figure this out I'll let other vBPortal users know how to
operate this. Thanks.

BTW this problem exists on Firefox 2.0.0.4 for Linux (RHEL5) as well
as Firefox 2.0.0.4 and IE6 on Windows XP.

Dear Oleg, could you please help me too? I have the same problem as
the others above, and all of my commenters have the same problem, that
the code is never accepted when entered.

I have cutenews 1.4.5., and here is my site:
http://johnnyweir.extra.hu/

[I had so much spam that my page actually crashed at one point, that's
why I desperately need some spam protection and the one here looked so
easy and nice, only this verificytion code trouble... :( ]

Thank you in advance.

I am trying to install your Captcha service on a site that is still
under construction, but the form is live. I get the same problem as
twilight described in the original post. I have read the related posts
Oleg suggested on 7 July, but cannot see how that will help me.

I used the installation instructions at
http://www.protectwebform.com/m/vercodes?ver_urls_id=23409 and copied
the code onto the HTML page and into the FormMail.pl file.

The form is at http://nhnzmovingimages.com/research.php

The code in FormMail file is:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w
###################################################
# Code provided by http://www.protectwebform.com
use LWP::Simple; use CGI; use URI::Escape;
CGI::ReadParse();
my $pwf_message = "The image code you have provided does not match the
actual one. Please hit the 'back' button of your browser and try
again.";

if(length($in{'protectwebformcode'}) > 30) {
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n".$pwf_message;
die;
}

my $protectwebformresult =
get("http://protectwebform.com/verify01?vui=23409&vp=nwpmzg20ckyq&ri="
. uri_escape($ENV{'REMOTE_ADDR'}) . "&vs=" .
uri_escape($in{'protectwebformcode'}));

if($protectwebformresult =~ m/<authorization status="0"/) {
print "Content-type: text/html\n\nWarning. You are not authorithed
to use image protection provided by http://www.protectwebform.com.
Read http://www.protectwebform.com FAQ for more information";
}
if($protectwebformresult !~ m/<verification result="yes"/) {
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n".$pwf_message;
die;
}
# End of code provided by http://www.protectwebform.com
####################################################

I would appreciate some help to get this working, since it seems it
will be a great service if I can get it going!

Many thanks, Leta

Well, that's really sad. I see I am not the only one who cannot get
help on this forum. That means I have to pull out from this
potentailly great service and try someone else's captcha.

nhnz:

this comment near the middle of this string solved the problem for me
as well. I think that's why they didn't help, because the question was
answered.
