Why using CedSecurityImages?

CedSecurityImages protect all Form in joomla without any hacks or Joomla core changes.
CedSecurityImages produce CAPTCHA (an acronym for "Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart") is a type of challenge-response test used in computing to determine whether or not the user is human.

Applications include preventing bots from taking part in online polls, registering for free email accounts (which may then be used to send spam) and collecting email addresses.

The negatives first. Security Images - Tricky to implement as it requires lots of core hacks. Each time you upgrade Joomla, those hacks need to reapplied with new hacks suited to the new Joomla version. The captcha may often not show due to template overrides so after all the installation work the captchas may still not show. The captcha is no longer available for the administrator page so you can only have captcha on login/registration and contacts. The backend is a bit hard to comprehend and Walter's English translations need some assistance from a natural English speaker. It is also not easy to make all 3rd party components accept captcha, each requiring specific hacks to code. Support is not available for the older versions for security images. Walter's website is as confusing as the component backend. The documentation is thorough though confusing at times with unresolved ambiguities. Walter's components and acoutrements seems a little chaotic sometimes.



You have to be brave to attempt to install this for all the above reasons, but if you make the attempt, the end result might well be exactly what you want.



Good points - Good and configurable captcha. Walter does his best to handle innumerable forum support requests. The joomla 1.0 version provides captcha on the administrator back end as well as the front. The product works. Walter is trying very hard to provide a product, documentation and a support level that is better than most.



If older versions were better supported and the back end of Joomla 1.5 was better protected I would give this component an Excellent.

Was true in Joomla 1.0 and Joomla 1.5 and not anymore starting with securityimages 6.0 (J1.6 and upward till J2.5)

>The captcha is no longer available for
>the administrator page so you can only have captcha on login/registration and contacts.

True starting with Joomla 1.5 and this is due the way Joomla CMS handle sessions.
In Joomla 1.6 and up all forms created with Joomla native JField will be protected without any code changes.

>The backend is a bit hard to comprehend and Walter's English translations need some assistance
>from a natural English speaker.

Yes that true I suppose you are still using joomla 1.0, securityimages 3.x is from 2004. I try now for other
components cedtag, cedthumbnails and cedsmugmug to have a nice and modern administrator backend panel.

>It is also not easy to make all 3rd party components accept captcha, each requiring specific hacks to code.

Yes and No.... there is an API in securityimages 3.x, 4.x and 5.x but in Joomla 1.0/1.5 there was no way to
define customs events to let me plug 3rd party code in other 3rd party components.

>Support is not available for the older versions for security images.

Since July 22nd 2009: Joomla 1.0 has reached end-of-life. And so has also support for securityimages 3.x, 4.x ended.
Since Marc 30th 2012: Joomla 1.5 has reached end-of-life. And so has also support for securityimages 5.x ended
-> I may solve security issues through but certainly do not improve the code anymore.

>Walter's website is as confusing as the component backend.

I did improve the situation thanks to cedtag and reorganize the menu "Joomla" by extensions. You can use my contact section to provide me some feedbacks.
I will invest some time in the comming days to improve even more

>The documentation is thorough though confusing at times with unresolved ambiguities. Walter's components and acoutrements seems a little chaotic sometimes.

I will work on it this week as well.

>You have to be brave to attempt to install this for all the above reasons, but if you make the attempt, the end result might well be exactly what you want.

Securityimages6 just require you to install a plugin (Joomla 1.6 to Joomla 2.5)

BTW consider using htaccess for the admin area, solving a captcha wont help a lot since there is now good tool to reverse engineer the captcha.

Great !!!

One of the greatest non-commercial components. All types of captchas are included. The only thing that I needed, is the integration with FB. Thanks guys for your efforts and work done. Really amazing that you are so devoted to the community.


Originally I activated the Recaptcha plugin that comes with Joomla 2.5, but I was not happy with the display: I could NOT read ANY of the captchas!! I must have clicked it 50 times or more. So I knew that I couldn't do that to my users (or potential users.)



I installed this Security Images plugin instead. I'm using the little animated movie captcha, which is easy to read and only requests 3 letters.



I didn't have any problems with installation: it showed up on the Registration Form immediately.



I don't understand why Joomla's default Recaptcha looks so incredibly BAD. Almost completely unreadable! I'm very glad there are other options like this Security Image plugin.


I was getting hammered with registrations by bots and need something BAD!



I downloaded and installed this and got the API for nucaptcha and within 5 minutes from downloading and installing I was setup and ready go to.



I have not had a single bot registration since I Installed this.


Doesn't Work


Posted on 24 November 2011

I expected a plugin with the name "Security Images" to actually show....well, Security Images.



It doesn't.



Installed easily enough. Configuration is pretty simple, not much one should be able to screw up. But after trying with all three captcha types on all five components, I can't get a security image to show up on ANY of them.



There is no documentation for Joomla 1.6/1.7, nor is there a support forum for it. The contact form to contact the author is broken.



You'd think something that was very recently updated for 1.6/1.7 would be better supported.


Simply download this and install it through the extension manager, goes smoothly on Joomla1.6 . Then just go to the plugin manager, adjust settings, I recommend using 'ReCaptcha' (but you have to request an API key) and then you hit save and your done. You can also set on which forms you want it to appear! (register etc.)


Works as advertised


Posted on 15 February 2011

This is a good, reliable captcha component, with easy configuration of the display and forms the captcha should be applied to. I have used it on three sites now, two with VirtueMart installed, and on all three the spam registrations have totally stopped, while real customers seem to have no problems registering.


Don't waste your time.


Posted on 10 December 2009

I'm sure the developer has put a huge amount of time into creating this extension, but it was a huge waste of my time to try to install it. Might be able to get it to work if you use a stock Joomla template, but of the two iTemplater templates I tried neither would display the captcha. Yes, I followed the install directions to the letter, including the awful pain of manually uploading the numerous patch files via ftp. Read the forum on his site, the FAQ, etc, tried reinstalling twice, and no luck. After I got to his instructions on how to download a program and use php coding to develop your own new patch files ("It's like a game!" he says), I figured I'll leave this extension to someone who has a lot more free time than I do. Even if I had been able to get this to work, the though of having to manually update all the different patch files after upgrading Joomla (every time!) made me want to forget the whole thing. Think twice before you jump into this mess.


Great for Joomla 1.0


Posted on 15 November 2009

This has been the only solution I can find for all the spam registrations on my old Joomla 1.0 site. Thank you!!


I installed this one and reinstalled and reinstalled ..



I kept getting the "500 - View not found" error when trying to save the settings. This error is mentioned in the documentation but it simply says the component was not correctly installed. However, I get no errors when installing and reinstalling does nothing. All directory perms are set properly etc.



Support is non-existent. There's a guy on the forums who posted in August and the solution is simple - he needs to upload the patched files. No one could even take the time to reply to him in 3 months however.



Move along and find another com. This one is dead.

Windows 8.1 tiles ★ premium version only With Internet Explorer, users can put their favorite Web sites right beside their favorite apps by pinning them to the Windows and Windows Phone Start Screens. Pinning Web sites from IE gives users immediate access to these sites from the Start Screen without having to navigate to them repeatedly. When users pin your site, they have indicated that they are frequent visitors of your site and care about updates from it. With that in mind, Internet Explorer now brings you Live Tiles for Web sites, allowing you to keep your users connected to your Web site outside of the browser. With Live Tiles, you can engage with your users by bringing fresh content such as breaking news, new message alerts or titles of new blog posts right to their Start Screen. Furthermore, you can support multiple tile sizes for your Web site, allowing users to display your site prominently as wide or large tiles. Windows Desktop and Windows Mobile are also supported by CedAdd2Home Notifications / Live Tile to your website Live Tiles for Web sites are powered by Periodic Notifications, wherein the platform pulls text and images from polling uris hosted on a server at a predefined polling interval, and displays this content on the Web site’s tile. With Windows 8.1, pinned site tiles can notify a user outside Internet Explorer 11 and pull them right back in! If you have a web feed, you can automatically build notifications into your tile. Who said RSS was dead? If you don't have one, skip this step. You can choose to implement custom tile notifications later. The polling uris defined in this example contain the contents of the notification to be displayed and will be polled every half an hour. Therefore in a given 30 minute interval, a user can see up to 5 updates from this site, keeping your user intimately connected with your Web site at all times. You can use 1 to 5 URL to your RSS feed in CedAdd2Home. Windows 7 ★ premium version only Your site feels more like a native app in Internet Explorer 9 through pinning.

CedGooglePlusComments is a powerful content plugin that allows for easy integration of Google+ comment system. Google+ Google+ Comments look similar to traditional Facebook comments, but have some important differences. For example: When you leave a comment on a blog, you'll see the option, checked by default, to also share that comment to Google+.. Google+ posts that link to blog posts will show up as a comment underneath those blog posts. If original comment is shared to Google+, replies to the comment on the blog will show up in Google+ and vice versa, but only to the people that the original comment was shared with. If a comment is not shared with the blog author, the blog author will not be able to see the comment in either location. As the author of a post, you’ll receive Google+ notifications when readers comment on or share your blog post. What if my readers don’t have a Google+ profile or page? Can they still comment? No, but they will be prompted to create one when they attempt to comment. Google+ Comments is not available for private blogs and for blogs with adult content. What happens when I remove a comment? Removing a Google+ comment will only affect the comment in the particular location you removed it from. For example, someone might create a public Google+ post that links to your blog post -- and since it links to your blog post, it'll show up as a comment on your blog. You can remove the instance of this post from your blog, but your removal won't affect the original post from showing up on Google+. Features ✓ Width of the comments box ✓ Display social interactions made on Google Plus. ✓ Themes light or dark ✓ Comments moderation support.
