ASP Form Captcha
No, no hand coding is needed or additional steps are required. The captcha verification code is inserted automatically into the web page that protects the form.
Note that the page that process the form (save it , or send by email, etc...) must exist before you apply the captcha to protect it.
Note that the image is not displayed when editing in Dreamweaver. The image is displayed when the page is loaded with a browser.
If you are not seeing the image in a browser, then there are three possibilities:
- The folder HDWASPFormCaptcha has not been uploaded. In this case you need to upload it. Please note that the HDWASPFormCaptcha folder is generated in your local web site when you insert the captcha in your page, then you need to upload that folder to your online web server.
- The path to the image (an ASP file) is wrong. Be sure that the paths in your local Dreamweaver matches with relative paths in your online web site
<input type="button" name="hdwnc" value="new image" onclick="document.getElementById('captchaimg').src =document.getElementById('captchaimg').src+'&'+Date();" />
This link makes the same function:
<a href="#captchaimg" onclick="document.getElementById('captchaimg').src =document.getElementById('captchaimg').src+'&'+window.Date();">new image</a>
To put Form2Mail and FormCaptcha together, please follow these steps:
- Insert Form2Mail into your form as always.
- Once inserted Form2Mail, insert FormCaptcha.
- Select the file "HDWForm2Mail/Form2Mail.asp" as the page to protect. Click the "Browse" button to select this file.
- Configure others parameters of FormCaptcha in the "Insert Captcha" window, as always.
- Update all the files in your web server.
These automatically will generate all the code needed to achieve the functionality.
Yes, follow these steps:
1 - Add an empty anchor at the bottom of your page like this one:
<% HDWCaptchaInvalidMessage %>
If your page has an extension different from ".ASP" then that block can not be processed and is sent directly to the browser, that's why the message appears.
You have two options:
1- You can rename your page to a ".ASP" extension to be able to show the confirmation messages.
2- ... or you can leave your page with the current extension and remove the <% HDWCaptchaInvalidMessage %> block to ignore it.
Please do not use spaces in the field names, use underscore _ instead spaces.
<select name="my field">
Please add the value attributes to the option tags.
- The page that processes the form wasn't selected as the "page to protect";
- .... or the page that processes the form wasn't uploaded to the online website after adding the captcha.
When you insert the captcha into your form, you must select processing page (where the form data is posted to) as the "page to protect". That way the captcha image will be inserted into your form and the captcha verification code will be inserted into the page that processes the form.
After this step, please remember to upload both the page that contains the form and the page that processes the form to your online webserver. Remember to upload also the "HDWFormCaptcha" folder that was generated into your website.
Download the most recent version of the Adobe/Macromedia Extension Manager or the version related to your Dreamweaver version:http://www.adobe.com/exchange/em_download/
After installed open the MXP file from the Extension Manager menu to be sure that you are installing the extension using the correct Extension Manager.
After accessing that link you will get a copy of the product and a copy of the download link will be sent to your email address. If you have not received the email, please check your spam/bulk mail folder.
If you lost both download links, please contact our support service and we will send you a new download link. Please include the email used for payment in your message;
Moneybookers is accepted in almost all countries.
Please, change the "Links relative to" setting in the site configuration options (Dreamweaver 8 or later).
If this setting does not solve the problem, then follow these steps:
- Restart Dreamweaver
- Be sure that you have a local web site defined in Dreamweaver
- Open the page where you want to insert the extension(this page must be saved previously into your web site)
- Try to insert the extension again
We also accept MoneyBookers (accepts credit cards when uploading funds).
It's required to define a working site in Dreamweaver because Dreamweaver needs to know where to place the files.
Download here a PDF document with help about defining a site in Dreamweaver.
If you are testing your page directly from your local hard disk in IE 7, this message appears:
"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls that could access your computer. Click here for options."
In IE 7 this message appears when you test a web page that contains a script or Flash item directly form your local hard disk. When you upload your page to an online web server that message does not appear.
The address from a web server must start with http:// or https:// . On the other hand if the address starts with C:\ or file:// then you are testing it from your local hard disk.
Just upload your web page to your web site and you will see that the error disappears.
- Check if you have defined a local web site at dreamweaver.
- Check if you have saved the page into your local web site.
- If you are using Dreamweaver templates, check if your templates allow an "Editable Region" in the <HEAD> section of the HTML code.
- Mark the "Use case-sensitive link checking" option in the site settings and recreate your site cache.
- After these checks, please restart your Dreamweaver and try again.
That's due to a bug in the Adobe Extension Manager that sometimes corrupts the "Menus.xml" file. That file can be found in the following location:
Windows users: C:\Documents and Settings\[UserName]\Application Data\Macromedia\Dreamweaver [version]\Configuration\Menus\menus.xml
Mac users: HD:Users:username:Library: Application Support:Macromedia:Dreamweaver [version]:Configuration:Menus:Menus.xml
To fix this problem close your Dreamweaver and try the following:
- Un-install all your extensions and then re-install them one at a time. This will work in most cases.
- If the above doesn't work then delete the "Menus.xml" file. After this you will need to disable and enable your extensions in order to get the menu entries again.
- If none of the above works then there is more than one file corrupted, the solution in this case will be to completely uninstall Dreamweaver and reinstall it again.
