What kind of a system is your XOOPS installed on? Local/server linux/windows/...

You can check the presence of the libraries with a small php file containing the following code
<?php
    phpinfo
();
?>

Put it on the same server as the XOOPS instalation and open it in your browser, ti will show a whole lot of details related to your php installation. Try to find a section named "GD". If it exists and it is enabled, than you have gd installed with your php. There are other graphical libraries, but I am not sure which of those are used by the internal captcha.

Site is running on a Linux hosted server.

I ran the code and result produced listing which did not include any such libraries. I have requested the hosting provider to install these. Will verify after they've done the install.

Problem Solved ! It turned out that the hosted server did not have the GD2 libraries installed. After their installation, captacha is now "purring like a kitten." Thanks all for your assistance.

Re: Is CAPTCHA not included in 2.3.2b package?

I am somewhat confused about captcha in registartion form. I don't see captcha images in registartion form.

I installed the latest download tar file. I don't see the directory /uploads/securityimage

1) Do we need to install user profiles modules to get captcha images in registration form?
2) Do we need GD module or GD2 module.

From php info, I have
gd
GD Support enabled
GD Version bundled (2.0.28 compatible)
FreeType Support enabled
FreeType Linkage with freetype
GIF Read Support enabled
GIF Create Support enabled
JPG Support enabled
PNG Support enabled
WBMP Support enabled
XBM Support enabled


xoops: 2.3.2b
php: 4.4.9

when I was running the install script, it complained that the GD module is missing. I am not sure whether it complained GD or GD2 is missing. Phpinfo claims that GD is enabled. Please help.

1) yes
2) yes

try to install the user profile module, and then check the captcha in the registration forms.

if phpinfo says that gd is on (and it seems like that), then it should work.
