    Default Open Realty v3 - Contact Form Captcha Not Working?

    Hello All

    I seem to have run into a problem; Me and my agents (we call em sellers) seem to be getting lots of spam from bots filling out Contact Forms.

    Under Admin Config, I went to:

    Social:

    Use image verification on contact forms? YES *I turned it on to yes

    __________-

    I am rather sure I have the GD Libs installed as well.

    Is there a special template tag I need to insert into file contact_agent.html?

    What version of Open-Realty, and what is your PHP version?

    If you are logged-in to OR as the Admin, an Agent or a Member already, you are not going to ever see the captcha. Log out of OR first and then try. The contact Agent link on the Agent page or on a listing page requires a site visitor to sign-up as a member (or log-in) and they have to pass the captcha before showing them the contact form and allowing a contact request to be submitted.

    If your contact form is not working like that, you are not running OR v3.0.6 (or perhaps you don't have all the v3.0.6 files) or you have some issue with your template. You might try switching to the lazuli template assuming you are using a custom template now and copy its 'contact_agent.html' template file .

    Now it's like, a guest can't go to listing, click on "Contact Agent" and than click on ""Create Account"

    Clicking Create Account , filling out the info, hitting submit, results in "Captcha Error - Please reenter the captcha information." (and i never even see the actual Captcha)



    This is using V3.0.6 and the contact_agent.html file is straight from a fresh v3.0.6 download (from lazuli template) :(

    Is it simply possible to just, no matter what the circumstances, theres a Captcha below a contact form submit?

    I figured out how to make sure the captcha thing is enabled.

    Under Social Tab (Under Site Config) Use image verification on contact forms? YES .... that is not the only thing that needs to be put on to YES

    Under Users Tab
    Use image verification on signup page: YES ..... also must be set to Yes...

    Was this meant to work this way?
