Custom Image for use with Anti-Spam Verification Questions
Following on from a tip shared by Sir Osis of Liver this mod has been created to enable Admins to use a custom image for the anti-spam verification questions that are created via Administration Center >> Security and Moderation >> Anti-Spam. The custom image will be displayed everywhere verification is required (eg, registration, guest searches, guest posting, guest reporting posts, etc).
Suggestion: Save the verification image to the forum default theme images folder (eg, ./Themes/default/images).
This mod also includes some safeguards just in case the verification image cannot be accessed via the supplied URL and/or if the verification image cannot be seen on the pages on which it is displayed: 1. A message will be displayed in the Admin Center if the verification image URL is not valid; and 2. On the pages on which the verification image is displayed a link to contact the webmaster is provided if the verification image cannot be seen.
Also, and even though the verification image size is displayed at a maximum pixel resolution of 300x300 on the registration page, the full-sized version of the image will be displayed in a new window/tab by clicking on it.
