I have a website using poll (in core) and captcha module. I have enabled captcha's for node_poll_form via the captcha interface on admin/config/people/captcha, but it doesn't work: the captcha does not appear on the poll page whatever I try to do.
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong, or is there an alternative to avoid polls being spammed from all over the place by bots?
I have installed Droopal 7.42 and am using it with Xampp server with PHP version 5.5.27 and server version 5.6.25. I want to access the Droopal admin page or dashboard but I can't because when I create a new account it asks me to select a username and then asks for my email. I provide both of these and then get a message saying that I should check my mail for further instructions to activate the account. The problem is I am not getting any such mail even after several attempts. My junk folder too has nothing in it. Please help me to resolve this issue.
