Hi all,

As I was trying to implement captcha to a contact form, the check never worked.

Actually, it was because I changed the possible characters in the options tab, to show only uppercase [A-Z].

I had to change lib_nonajax.php line 149:

if ( $_SESSION['turing_string_'.$no] <> strtolower($_POST['cforms_captcha'.$no]) )


 if ( strtolower($_SESSION['turing_string_'.$no]) <> strtolower($_POST['cforms_captcha'.$no]) )

 Don't know if that can help someone…

By the way, how can we check that the ajax form check is working?

Right, it probably makes sense to allow upper case letters now that the CAPTCHA feature is fully configurable…next version.
