I’ve been reading a lot of posts recently about pet blogging hates and one of them being Captcha’s – you know that bit when you post a comment and gives you two words to type because it’s checking you are a human?. My friend Kelly over at Domestic Goddesque has written a great article about how they drive her mad and her campaign to ban them. I hate them mainly because I can never read the damn things and it’s even worse when you are on a mobile device.
Until recently you couldn’t turn Captcha’s off in New Blogger, you had to go back into the old format which most new blogger’s don’t even know about. If you want to look at the old Blogger layout btw – there are a few extra bits and pieces there, click on the cog on the top right and then select ‘Old Blogger’ – you can always come back to the new.
But it looks like there has been an update to New Blogger, which means you can now rid your blog of Captcha or Word Verification as Blogger like to call it. Just follow the instructions below and turn it off and look forward to getting lots more comments.
