When i updated from joomla 3.2.1 to 3.2.2 and updated a few other components as well, and had a small conflict with another components update. I emailed support and Douglas replied within 30 min, asked for a bit more info, and had a new adjusted plugin emailed to me within an hour, and it wasn't even his plugin that was at fault. A nice guy to work with and excellent support. Thank you again Douglas
No issues from real visitors, but too many bots registration.
SecurImage protects your forms against spam bots. There are several settings on the back-end in order to make it harder for spam bots to guess the image code.
If the problem is with registration, please check if you have other extensions that allow user registration. Some Forums (like Kunena) and shopping carts do not use Joomla core Captcha plugin type, therefore SecurImage captcha plugin cannot protect it.
If that's the case, please contact the other extension's developer about it and please change your review. Otherwise, contact me, so we can work together on a solution.
thanks to securimages i have all the build in functions as recaptha, but without the craptcha!
thanks for brilliant extension and well worth the 6 bucks(R63 for me in South Africa)
SecurImage is the ultimate solution.
You can customize it much better and easier than reCaptcha.
And... support is faster than lightning. And all this for such a small cost, it's very satisfying.
