Simple Captcha reloaded

Hi all,

After really long time, I have started the further development for enhancements on the plugin Simple Captcha. Keep an eye here… You will gonna find nice things. I have some really required, useful and cool things to implement and get it to the version 2.0 with all things incorporated in that. There are a lot of things to be committed by the version 2.0… meanwhile there will be 1.x versions with one-two features added in each version.

I am also planning to move the homepage as a separate page from a simple blog post… So, that it can be a centralized page for the reference.

    I suppose that you will be using our silverlight for this purpose. Correct?

    I am VERY new to rubyonrails. I’ve created one form. I now need to add captcha to that form. I made it as far as >> rake simple_captcha:setup_old. We are running rails 1.1.6. I got “command not found”. It appeared (to my untrained eye) that everything prior to that ran fine. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I guess I missed your comment… Please visit the page http://expressica.com/simple_captcha

    Have you installed the plugin properly ?
    Please check out the directory vendor/plugins/simple_captcha directory, if its not there or the directory is empty download the plugin from the page mentioned above and put it into the vendor/plugins directory.

  7. Di says:

    The simple_captcha directory was there but empty. I downloaded the contents and tried again. I received the same “command not found”.

    Would >> rake simple_captcha:setup_old also be run from the application root (or in my limited understand …/www/rails$)?

    Thank you!

    I tried it on rails 1.1.6, running perfectly on my end.
    I am not able to reproduce the error.
