security verification code
« on: July 05, 2011, 07:34:45 pm »
only been using creataforum a week, and been testing by singing up under different user names, however, I find that I have to refresh the verification code several if not many times before I get one that is at least somewhere near eligible . Is there any chance that this can be changed to a more user friendly verification code ? It may be putting people off joining - it would if it were me !!  Thanks

All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.

There is no way to change the complexity of the Recaptcha Code.   The settings in Security and Moderation/Anti-Spam won't effect/change it.   Those settings are the default in the software - however the Verification system being used (Recaptcha) is a Modification added to the system and there are no settings whereby you can alter the complexity.

Yeah, but it seems a bit daft to have a settings from 'none' to 'simple' to 'medium' and 'extreme' but not actually make a difference to the verification code quality.

Yeah I realize that gets confusing.   Those settings were there for the default verification system.     Recaptcha was added as its a much better system and when its added it does not and can not remove those settings from the software.

Naw its not that at all.  Recaptcha is just a better system and harder for bots to get around.
