Preview of SecurityImages 5.2.0

An insight at securityimages 5.2.0 still in development, as usual, all comments are welcome either in this post or in my forum

NEW: fonts are now auto detected, and a better widget is now available for selecting them, sorry still no font preview in php 😉


You can install your own true type fonts at /administrator/components/com_securityimages/fonts
This replace the combo box which was prone to user entries errors…

NEW: More fine grained control on the type of plugin you would like to use on a per section/category basis.
A small captcha for the login module, and a bigger one or a totally different rendering algorithm in register for example.

NEW: A check to avoid some user choosing plugin/version combinations that do not exist..


NEW: A new API for recaptcha/ existing section that make integration a lot more easier. Old API still available for backward compatibilities.

NEW: Sound! developed for securityimages AND also will be also committed to #Joomla Comment trunk.

SecurityImages create audible CAPTCHA codes as WAV files by combining sound files of each letter and number that appears in the character set.

  • A feature that has taken 3 years to be integrated…
  • It increase the component size by 320kb !
  • It can only speak English at the moment…
  • It can not speak special character (#%&)

AJAX: start of a POC which allow captcha to be checked asynchronously without needing submit of whole page. This is a major complain since the beginning of SecurityImages, as currently users lost their entries in the form in case the captcha challenge get refused. I will try to use JQUERY/XAJAX
