compat_15_nativeext_com Component - ext_mod Module - ext_plugin Plugin

The focus on this release is to make the install more easier, as it is one major source of complains. I did also set up new release management tools so you should never search again for a file on my homepage...

Component

NEW: plugin is now part of the component, it is installed and published automatically when you install my component. It is also remove automatically when you remove the component.
NEW: German translations thanks to Simon Grazioli from Switzerland
NEW: Italian translations thanks to
NEW: icons are back in menu for more clarity
BUG: one variable not set in /components/com_user/controller.php; line 48 :  captcha not displayed as a result.
BUG: Reload limit not taken into account. Reload limit is configured in the SecurityImages system plugin Extensions->Plugin Manager->System - SecurityImages->Plugin Parameters->Reload captcha count
BUG: Several subtle bugs discovered by svert (forum HERE)

NEW: Better check you system page checking now permissions. Remark, securityimages5 just require read permissions, so for 99% of your php files r--r--r-- (chmod 444) is more than enough! configuration file must have rw-r--r-- (chmod 644) or you wont be able to change configuration file with the Joomla GUI. NEVER NEVER use chmod 777 on any directory or file!

NEW: Joomla! Patches are now fully configurable -> you can decide to activate captcha on some area or not
(require to install new patches Joomla_1.5.x-Stable-Full_PackageForSecurityImages5.1.0_v01.00.00.zip )

Note the version PackageForSecurityImages5.1.0

These patches are still way too intrusive toward Joomla! I am looking for an alternative for the next versions...

Contact me if you have an idea how it should be made in Joomla!

securityimages5.1.0.joomla.patches

 

TODO: recaptcha plugin is not available for legacy 3rd party application, as SecurityImages send only an image back. This is clearly not the most flexible way to get an HTML back instead (sic). So at the moment, I need to change API's, SecurityImages should return a HTML block with everything inside (image, field, JavaScript, links). The change is trivial but not for all 3rd party application around that get suddenly broken...

NEW: XHTML 1.0 compliant for all Joomla! patches.

NEW: Better documentation on how to add SecurityImages in contact, login, register

securityimages5_betterdoc

Download files for your right version of Joomla HERE (33kB) and EXTRACT ARCHIVE!
overwrite file on your server VIA FTP/SCP
Go to Joomla! control panel and HIT at least SAVE config once, this will add a new boolean value
(true or false) in Joomla! configuration for using SecurityImages.

 

Updating, security

NEW: Menu "Check for latest version" drive you to Securityimages5, it has now its own category (10) in my version manager, so users of SecurityImages 4.x.x (Joomla! 1.0.x only) do not get confuse. You may also want to register the RSS of that category Feed Icon for never missing any new release :-)

NEW: Joomla! 1.5 patches have now their own category in my version manager, You may also want to register the RSS of that category Feed Icon, you'll never search for the right patch again as everything is resume there.

The same apply for all previous users of SecurityImages4/Joomla1.0.X, this page will keep you informed, RSS also available Feed Icon

Both are available using the menu as seen below:

SecurityImages 5.1.2 available
This version should improve installations on some host, where the plugin securityimages.php did not always install properly. The reason behind is that I did add falsely an additional file index.html in plugin.zip. This may lead to permissions issues during installation. SecurityImages 5.1.2 do not contains any other changes, so If you’re happily running SecurityImages 5.1.1, no need to upgrade! Download Details …
