Image verification not showing

dazbot 09 Dec, 2008
Hi, I know this has come up before but there seems to be so many hacks I don't know where to start.

Im using V3 on a Joomla 1.5.7 site

Ive successfully created a form and it works / sends me an email....but in the Antispam tab the image verification isn't there. If I look at the page:


I get a 500 internal server error

Why should I start? Is it a permissions problem?

Hi dazbot,

Please take a look at FAQ 30 "ImageVerification doesn't work" - there are a few things to test out there.

Ok, looked at the anti spam tab and I have this:

GD Version bundled (2.0.34 compatible)
FreeType Support Yes
PNG Support Yes

Tried to change line 17 in chrono_verification.php from header("Content-type: image/png"); to header("Content-type: text/html")

Still comes up with an internal server error😟

Hi dazbot.

Can you check the server logs?

Cheers Bob, it was because the components directory was writable by group and world

All working, will be paying for a license!

I'm sorry, I don't understand what you did to fix it. I've tried setting the com_chrono components folder to many different privileges and it still is showing as a broken image.

Hi mediamisfit,

There seem to be a bunch of things that can affect this. Check the FAQ here, then check your server logs and see if you can find any helpful error messages.
