Very nice component. But as you say :
That Captcha plugin, though, needs some improvements. E.g. I can confirm, that it is too difficult to recognize "secret word" without error
Wouldn't you rather include a small captcha system into yvcomments ? Someone already suggested the CB captcha engine in this thread...
Hi! Captcha "feature", as you know, is not so simple: both CoolAcid, the author of OSTCaptcha
, and Community Builder (CB) team use some (adapted) third party libraries - they didn't write them.
Just out of curiosity, I searched CB forum, and found many posts (see e.g. thread "Using the "CB Captcha" feature in own CB plugin
"), that show difficulty (inability) of developers to adapt that CB Captcha plugin for something else...
OSTCaptcha plugin, that is used by yvComment now, was created by CoolAcid with my close involvement in designing its interface so, that it became universal Joomla! Captcha plugin
, not dependent on any specific usage. This is great!
The problem is, that OSTCaptcha plugin is not updated in a timely manner. I talked with CoolAcid and he seemed like wanted to support it... but its obvious, that he is not motivated enough to do so
But look at the thread of OSTCaptcha plugin in this forum
: it seems like only I
have any problems with it (or only I am using it
) and only I have any suggestions for its improvement
. So its no wonder, that the Author doesn't want to work for "one user"...
So, if you want to have good Captcha support in Joomla! in general and in yvComment in particular, my advice is to post your comments in above mentioned thread of OSTCaptcha plugin in this forum
- this way we will motivate the author (or, maybe some new developer to come
) to continue this good work.
As for me, I prefer to have a team and I can't support everything, on which yvComment depends...
