Hello,

when a new user wants to register with jforum he/she has to fill in the registration form with a security image generated.

The problem is that looking at that image it is hard to guess which chars are capital and which are lowercase, thus it takes several attempts before the user can actually register, which is not that convenient.

Regards,

I'm going to add a new feature, where it will be able to tell JForum to ignore case when validating the input.

Here: http://www.jforum.net/jira/browse/JF-528

Until there, you may disable captcha (SystemGlobals.properties, key "security.cache.enabled") if you want.

thanks, Rafael,

that would be great. For now, I did like you suggested and disabled captcha.

Andrew.

But how did the elephant get like that? What did you do? I think all we can do now is read this tiny ad:
