    Default CAPTCHA CREATOR not working

    I use FormMail 8.23. I set up auto-respond to work with the free captcha script that Tectite provides and it all worked fine, except the image quality to too low and users were submitting many forms until they could get it to verify (they couldn't read the captcha letters).

    So, I purchased CAPTCHA CREATOR and changed the input name to imgverify per the Tectite instuctions for using CAPTCHA CREATOR with FormMail. Here is the entire input box:

    Here is the image:
    Code:
    <img src="http://parishpublishing.ipower.com/c...tchac_code.php" alt="Image verification" id="vimg">
    I have also tried changing the id back to what CAPTCHA CREATOR has originally:

    Code:
    <img src="http://parishpublishing.ipower.com/c...tchac_code.php" alt="Image verification" id="captcha">
    Here is the input box:
    Code:
     
    <input type="text" name="imgverify" value="" maxlength="100" size="10">
    I DID NOT alter the FormMail script.

    The problem is that when I submit the form with the correct CAPTCHA letters, only the Bad_URL comes up and the error email I get back states that the form wouldn't verify ... but I know the letters are correct.

    THe FormMail script is in a folder called cgi-bin on the same root.

    I cannot get the image to verify, so I am not sure FormMail is finding it ???
    A. Is the img tag correct?
    B. Is the Input tag correct?
    C. How does FormMail know where to look for the captcha letters it is going to match to the value of imgverify?
    D. Any thoughts on why it won't verify even when the correct captcha letters are input?

    Thanks

    A,B look fine

    C - captcha creator and formmail communicate via a PHP session.

    Therefore, u must be consistent with URLs. Don't mix "www.parishpublisng.ipower.com" with "parishpublisng.ipower.com"

    Since verifyimg use to work, that's good.

    do u have a windows server? if so, u will probly have to put formmail and the captcha creator script in the same folder.

    different folders seem to break php sessions on windows servers
