Problem with Recaptcha

paulomogie.com
Recaptcha on the home page makes it difficult to signup unless user turns phone landscape. Please let's work on it to work better without having to turn phone on landscape mode. Thank you

Re: Problem with Recaptcha

I haven't worked on replacement code yet, but I can say it's the "usual trouble", by which I mean Nabble was developed in the days when desk/laptops were predominant and large screens were assumed, so everything was built using tables. As the code stands the content of the cells don't wrap and that's what causes the problem.

Check the source for a registration page and you find the offending section of the page is the code within the
<table class="field-table">...</table>
 tags.
To confirm this I used the "Edit this page" link to reach the start_registration_page macro where I found a link to registration_stylesheet where I replace line 5  with:
table.field-table { border:solid 1px red;margin:1em auto; border-collapse:collapse; } 
to add a red border.

I suggest the ideal solution would be to rebuild the table as a set of divs with floating elements that allow the entry fields to slip under the various prompts currently in the td.column1 tags. To do this the macro that needs to be rebuilt is "registration_fields", with appropriate changes to the "registration_stylesheet" macro.

If Nabble doesn't beat us to a solution, hopefully they will incorporate whatever we come up with across all servers.

Re: Problem with Recaptcha

Thank you so much I already fixed it. Thanks for your prompt response. Again let me please ask this as I plan to really make my forum big and since this is an open source I do love it, but is this really sustainable? I don't want to build a huge community and wake up and it's no more. My forum mentors young people for free and we just launched less than 3 days now : www.mentoringforum.org. So I guess if we can have a donation page and always contribute to the sustainability and improvement of nabble. Me I'm really to always donate to make it better. Thank you

Re: Problem with Recaptcha

I see that your solution is to remove the ReCaptcha.

I would advice you against doing that as it opens your forum up to spammers who can easily set bots to register on it.

Most humans do not trigger the awkward image selection part of the ReCaptcha process and only encounter it on registration - a minor one-time awkwardness.

Yes I'm monitoring that. Meanwhile how can we work on the recaptcha to show properly when the phone is not on landscape mode?

I'll work on it when I have time and post my proposed code on my GregHelp site (and report the post in this topic).
