Unfortunately yes but atleast now you are protected against 2 known exploits that existed in 2.3.1.

When will these very valuable changes be incorporated into a new release?

(Thanks for addressing this annoying issue!)

BTW, there is a class to do graphic-driven human verification on the PHP classes site (http://www.phpclasses.org/browse/package/1914.html). You may need an account to get the code. Haven't looked to see if the code is any good. Also, there probably are other implementations on the other php snippets sights.

Just thought I'd mention it.

I released a image verification (captcha) mod about 2 years ago. These mods (except the image verification) are implemented into Lazarus but as to if he will implement them into AG I could not say.

I have made the changes to the files and when I go to sign the guestbook I get this error:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /home/jenbrink/public_html/guestbook/lib/add.class.php on line 17

(Line 17=   var $bottest = '';)


class addentry {

var $db;
var $ip;
var $include_path;
var $template;
var $name = '';
  var $bottest = '';
  var $bottestanswer = CEILINGS;

I did remove the ' ' as noted : /* this is the answer to the question. It must contain no ' */

I dont think that I missed anything (?)

Thanks for any help!!

No I mean the actual answer must contain no ' but it must be between two '

I guess that I just don't understand? I have two entrys in the code that say

if(document.book.gb_comment.value =="") {

One is ErrorPost1 and the other is ErrorPost2

I am using 2.3.1

PhP is not my forte.
