Anoncement: Security images for Mambo
can help YOU
|Ever been to a site where you had to register and the registration form required that you type in the same phrase that is found in a hard-to-read image? Mambo has since now not have this possibility. That’s why I created an administration component com_securityimages.|
The component is not release yet but will be tomorrow!!!
In order to appreciate my work, by clicking read more You will be able to read the manual…
Update 15.08.2005: I will release the component soon, I have add today:
Security images for Mambo
com_securityimages is a regular Mambo component, You can install it like any other component using the backend admin panel.
After installation, verify that
|You can access the admin panel…|
|By pointing your browser to |
You see a security image (HIT reload page or refresh to receive a new one)
NONE, but this component use the GD library (PHP extension), it should be present on your Mambo server.
I already modified akocomment and akobook from Arthur Konze to support security images. You can find the component bundled in the ZIP distribution BUT if You decide to use them….
- Akocomment require com_hashcash which required com_log4php -> so first intall com_log4php then com_hashcash then com_akocomment (component and mambot)
- Akobook require com_hashcash which required com_log4php -> so first intall com_log4php then com_hashcash then com_akobook
Usage (for developer)
Using this framework is very simple.
In the page your code send to the user…
<?php echo insertSecurityImage("security_refid" );
<?php echo getSecurityImageText("security_try" );
The code above insert the image, and the text, You page normally submit information to the server for processing. Most of the time using the tag form action
In the server code where you process the data…
include $mosConfig_absolute_path.'/administrator/components/com_securityimages/server.inc'); $checkSecurity = checkSecurityImage($security_refid, $security_try);
if $checkSecurity = true then the user has entered the right text.
Admin panel Screenshots…
security images for Mambo is highly configurable
