If you are looking for simple and easiest CAPTCHA code using PHP. In this tutorial I am going to explain how to implement own CAPTCHA in PHP with use of some existing image functions in PHP for creating an image.
A CAPTCHA is a random string which is basically used to protect website from spam.Here I am going to show you the one of the easiest CAPTCHA code and you can easily add into your site. Here I have generate a character with using some string functions and loop.
$charlist = "ABCDEFGHJKLMNPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789#*&^$@%><";
$cnt = strlen($charlist) - 1;
$char = "";
while(strlen($char) < 6)
$char .= $charlist[rand(0,$cnt)];
Next,place below code and here I have defined
png image to create a CAPTCHA but you can use jpeg,bmp and gif also. In header, ‘
Content-Length‘ will be png if you are going to use imagepng and jpeg, if imagejpeg.In imagecreate function, you need to pass own width and height for image.
$imghandle = imagecreate(width,height) or die('Cannot initialize new GD image stream');
/* setting the background, text and noise colours here */
$background_color = imagecolorallocate($imghandle,0,0,0);
$text_color = imagecolorallocate($imghandle,255,255,255);
$noise_color = imagecolorallocate($imghandle, 100, 120, 180);
/* output captcha image to browser */
imagedestroy($imghandle);//destroy the image instance
Now, When submit CAPTCHA code, have to validate captcha text entry and without validation, CAPTCHA is useless. so to validate CAPTCHA, first we take CAPTCHA code into SESSION variable and compare it with the user entered text passed as POST data.
$_SESSION['captcha'] = $char;
That’s it.What do you think is this easiest technique I’ve mentioned above? Why or why not? Share your thoughts and questions in the comments.
