This mod was made for me by my friend Sean. This script stops people posting unless they type in the randomly generated text that appears in an image on the addentry page. You can get it from www.carbonize.co.uk/verification.zip.

It probably wont work with 2.2 as it was written for 2.3.1. Is it not possible for you to upgrade to 2.3.1?

I'd have to look at the 2.2 script to see what the differences were.

Please do. Those of us who are happy with 2.2 would love it.

My last post was a subtle hint that it would be nice if somebody sent me the files. Unless you have a download link for 2.2 that is.

Out of curiosity why do you prefer 2.2 to 2.3.1?

Ok I've overhauled the image verification script. It now takes them back to the addentry form with an error message at the top if they get the code wrong. I have also rewrote the instructions to make then clearer, I hope, and included iinstructions for people using 2.2. Finally I have also changed how it appears in the form so it makes more sense to the user.

You can get it from http://www.carbonize.co.uk/verification.zip

Feel free. I may have messed something up in the instruction file so what I will do is make a new zip file that not only contains verify.php and verifyimage.php but also has the three files (addentry.php, add.class.php and form.php) with the changes already in place. I will comment the modified sections in these files so people can see the changes made. I will still include the read me file as well.

I missed something off the instructions
in add.class.php


This should fix it.

Found another bug. Here's the fix.

open lib/add.class.php


This should allow posts after a preview.
