I found many fake user registered in our journal.
I read some suggestion to activate the captcha, I did as show in screenshot.
But, in the register form the captcha box is not appear.
Need help to avoid fake user/spam registration
which version of OJSare you using? From the screenshot it seems to be OJS 3.0.
The excerpt of your config contains setting for captcha which are not supported by OJS 3.0.
OJS 3.0 uses reCaptcha and this is the section in config.inc.php with the setting:
; Captcha Settings ;
; Whether or not to enable ReCaptcha
recaptcha = off
; Whether or not to enable Captcha features
captcha = off
; Whether or not to use Captcha on user registration
captcha_on_register = on
; Whether or not to use Captcha on user comments
captcha_on_comments = off
; Whether or not to use Captcha on notification mailing list registration
captcha_on_mailinglist = off
; Font location for font to use in Captcha images
font_location = /usr/share/fonts/truetype/freefont/FreeSerif.ttf
; Whether to use reCaptcha instead of default Captcha
recaptcha = off
; Public key for reCaptcha (see http://www.google.com/recaptcha)
; recaptcha_public_key = my_key
; Private key for reCaptcha (see http://www.google.com/recaptcha)
; recaptcha_private_key = my_key
But still the recaptcha is not coming.
You’ll need to register for a recaptcha key, and then configure that within config.inc.php. Note that the configuration options have changed between OJS 2.x and OJS 3.x. Many of the directives you list above are OJS 2.x only.
Checked this issue once more. It seems that reCaptcha uses the browsers` language, but not html page language. I have installed Ukrainian language pack on Firefox and changed default language to it. After this manipulations reCaptcha language also have changed to this language. This mostly solves the problem for the authors, who not know English.
One thing that is different about your config than most configs is that you are using disable_path_info. Is this due to current server limitations? Do have a way to test this in your current environment with disable_path_info as “Off”?
