    HoneyPot Captcha

    Hello, @Jack_mcs includes/modules/honeypot/honeypot_verify_contact_us.php Where is MODULE_HEADER_TAGS_HONEYPOT_CREATE_ACCOUNT_SECURITY_FAILURE defined? I can't find it. I suppose I'm also confused as to why it would say create_account instead of contact_us, too. The Contact Us page is not working for me with captcha turned on. It just reloads the page when I try to send the inquiry. Using 2.3.4.1 CE - Andrea

    I installed this on my test site and it's working fine. Now trying to figure out what the difference is between the two sites. I'll post back when I figure it out. Didn't change any of the original Honeypot files, either. - Andrea

    That got rid of the first error I posted, but still no account creation and getting this now: Notice: Undefined index: security_check in /home/xxxx/public_html/includes/functions/honeypot.php on line 61 Thanks for your continued help! - Andrea

    HoneyPot Captcha

    When I initially turned on the error reporting in create_account.php I had so many errors, I think they may have 'hidden' what I'm seeing today. I cleaned up all of my old errors and then took a shot at this again. I swapped out the entries in captcha.php - turned on the error reporting in create_account.php - and tried again. No account created, but I am seeing this onscreen: Notice: A session had already been started - ignoring session_start() in /home/xxxx/public_html/includes/functions/honeypot.php on line 58 Notice: Undefined index: security_check in /home/xxxx/public_html/includes/functions/honeypot.php on line 60 Any ideas? - Andrea

    No offense, but I don't understand what you mean. Try again after my previous session has expired? I don't know what you mean. - Andrea

    I don't know. Seems like when you block one they just come again from another and it never ends. My IP Block list via cPanel is quite large already. And I always worry that I may end up inadvertently blocking legitimate buyers from accessing my site in the future. Guess it's a personal preference. I love what Honeypot Captcha is doing as it is. I wouldn't request what you're offering, but...that's just my two-cents. - Andrea

    No, I didn't really know what to expect, so I posted the screenshot just to get your opinion. Thinking about my create account page...I have disabled the telephone number field as being a requirement. It's there, but...you can take it or leave it. I tried a new account with a phone number, and it still failed with captcha enabled. Guess I'm wondering if whatever I did to disable it may be in conflict with the captcha code. I'll take a closer look at that tomorrow. For what it's worth, I haven't gotten a single fake account since installing this around noon today. The spammers are definitely still trying...I'm getting loads of emails from the Log feature that say: 11-04-2019: Denied due to numbers in a name The attempts are obviously automated, as the IP addresses being used are generating these emails every 30 minutes like clockwork. I have the time set between create account attempts at 30 minutes. I may be perfectly fine without the captcha, but I will look at it some more tomorrow. Thanks for your great work, @Jack_mcs - Andrea

    @ecartz Nope. Still not working. Same email as before. Thanks for the idea! - Andrea

    I enabled the Honeypot setting in Log Tracker to Both, so I'm receiving emails when I try to create an account. First thing in the email is my IP address, followed by: 11-04-2019: Denied due to captcah Captcha is misspelled - could there be typos in the contribution causing a problem? - Andrea

    GD Support is enabled. The captcha image is not missing in any web browser. And when I turned on the error reporting...what a mess! Lots of errors, but none related to Honeypot Captcha. Lots of deprecated constructor errors, stuff like that. Some of the contribs I'm using and whatnot. Does this look normal? From create_account.php - Andrea

    Yes, it is.
  12. @JcMagpie - Welcome to MY world! 😛 It's not unusual to see one or two of these things every month, but...I've been getting bombarded with it for the last week or so. Dozens of these every day now. I guess spammers are really ramping things up for the holiday season! - Andrea

    HoneyPot Captcha

    Hi @Jack_mcs I changed those two entries in captcha.php and still not working. No new entries in the error log, but...still can't create an account or send via Contact Us with the captcha enabled. If Show Math Captcha is set to False, everything is fine. It is stopping accounts with more than 2 words for first name, more than 1 for last name, not allowing numbers in the fields, etc. It's just this one feature that won't cooperate! Ugh! I'm using PHP 7.0 for what it's worth. - Andrea

    HoneyPot Captcha

    Thank You, @Jack_mcs I just finished installing it and all appears to be well except for the math captcha. It appears onscreen in all the forms I've assigned Honeypot to use, but it doesn't work for me. For example, I'll fill out create account with legit information and then answer the captcha question: 7 + 2 = and in the accompanying text field I'll type in 9 and then try to submit but it will fail. My error log is showing this: [04-Nov-2019 16:54:12 UTC] PHP Warning: imagecolordeallocate() expects exactly 2 parameters, 1 given in /home/xxxx/public_html/captcha.php on line 56 [04-Nov-2019 16:54:12 UTC] PHP Warning: imagecolordeallocate() expects exactly 2 parameters, 1 given in /home/xxxx/public_html/captcha.php on line 57 ...and that just goes whoosh over my head. If you could please take a look I'd appreciate it! - Andrea
  15. I changed it last night to 16 for both first and last name. Total waste of time, I guess. Mephistopheles will still fit. 🤩
