PHP Captcha Tutorial (in-depth)

in PHP added by techusky, on 2/1/2008 advanced tutorials captcha php5 security verification

This CAPTCHA script allows a user to easily customize things such as the string length, minimum and maximum font size, image size, the font used, and even the characters used, etc... Unlike most CAPTCHA scripts that generate the random text based on an md5 hash of the time, this one lets the user input specific numbers, uppercase, and lowercase characters they want used (or don't want used) in the creation of the CAPTCHA image. It also assures, regardless of the length of the string, that there is at least both 1 random upper and lowercase character in the string, thus making it more difficult for bots. Another feature in this script is that it randomly rotates each character on the image.

While you can fetch all the records from a database, store them into an array and pass it to Pager, this method isn't particularly efficient. If you have large resultsets, it isn't efficient at all. There's a better solution: please welcome Pager_Wrapper.

Cross-Domain Ajax with symfony

I recently released a new symfony plug-in, called sfWebBrowser.

As a matter of fact, it doesn't even require symfony to work - you can use it on any application, with any framework. Refer to its wiki page for installation instructions.

As I begin writing this, I realize I am in some way contributing to all the noise and novelty around "NoSQL".
