Description Siebrand Mazeland 2008-10-18 14:43:56 UTC
PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined method SimpleCaptcha::showImage() in /var/www/w/extensions/ConfirmEdit/ConfirmEdit_body.php on line 57

[16:38] <siebrand> NicDumZ: can you give the me steps to reproduce for the issue?
[16:39] <NicDumZ> oh, that's you're not using image captchas !
[16:40] <NicDumZ> because.
[16:41] <NicDumZ> pywp is scraping for that line <input type="hidden" name="wpCaptchaId" id="wpCaptchaId" value="1495761080" />
[16:41] <NicDumZ> which appears on edits by new accounts

Still shouldn't result in a fatal error, I guess.

[16:43] <NicDumZ> and then tries to load
Comment 2 Nicolas Dumazet 2008-10-18 14:53:52 UTC
To clarify this: pywp only supported image captchas until now; didn't know about word captchas. The bot was not supposed to access this page with a Word captcha, and the behavior has been fixed since.

Not sure if in the current version of the extension, such URLs have to be accessed; however such a behavior, even on a bad page title/use case, is wrong :)

Fixed in r45957
