[Mediawiki-l] Configuring CAPTCHA with FancyCaptcha.php

Hi,

I've been attempting to configure Captcha on my Wiki (1.6.3) using
FancyCaptcha.

It works fine with just the ConfirmEdit extension although I needed to
change some code in the ceSetup function so it wouldn't display as
Chinese (I think it's Chinese anyway).

Although when I try and use FancyCaptcha it won't display the image. I
followed these instructions
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/ConfirmEdit_extension. I've created the
images although when I load the create account page it only shows the
text:

As a protection against automated spam, you'll need to type in the
words that appear in this image to register an account:
(What is this?)

and a input box.

The HTML code looks like:

<div class='captcha'><p>As a protection against automated spam, you'll
need to type in the words that appear in this image to register an
account:<br />
(<a href="/wiki-sb/index.php/Special:Captcha/help"
title="Special:Captcha/help">What is this?</a>)
</p><p><img src="/wiki-sb/index.php?title=Special:Captcha/image&amp;wpCaptchaId=1779701830"
width="182" height="71" alt="" /></p>
<input type="hidden" name="wpCaptchaId" id="wpCaptchaId"
value="1779701830" /><p><input name="wpCaptchaWord" id="wpCaptchaWord"
tabindex="1" /></p>
</div>

I've also noticed that the 'What is this?' link is also broken, is
this normal by default and it needs to be manually created? Or should
it already exist?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Ewen
