So going through my comments a few weeks ago i noticed one that hinted to me to disable the captcha code function when people commented on my blog.........i have to thank you...as well, i didn't even realise it was enabled.
This function DRIVES ME INSANE when i go and comment on other blogs, and then to find out its enabled on mine..well you can guess what i did....yep its now disabled, bye bye captcha.
Now obviously i do get the odd bit of spam through..but hey, doesn't everyone...but i do think that having this highly annoying and frankly time consuming feature on your blog sometimes hinders people from making comments. I have to admit at times i have given up leaving a comment as the captcha has been so bloody unreadable....how can i prove I'm human if i can't even read it!!!
Anyway if you've moved from the old blogger interface to the new you may find that the feature has sneakily turned itself back on in the process.
To check if it is enabled and to disable the feature if you wish simply:
Click on the settings link
Click on posts and comments
Where it says 'show word verification' you will see a drop down box - select no to stop the pain!!
