Layout Tips and Tricks #1: Removing Captcha Comments
After my email box was inundated with messages from bloggers asking for help with their blog layouts, I decided it may be a good idea to start posting a few basic edits or blogging tips so they're public and everyone has access to them whenever they want! I asked for you guys' thoughts on Twitter and everyone seemed pretty keen! Before we get in to the nitty gritty HTML, I figured it was probably the right time to publicly approach a pet peeve of most bloggers.
Now I'm not one for being negative towards people or their blogs, but I know for a fact having 'Captcha' puts a lot of people off commenting on a blog, including me. Personally, I think its better to open the comments to everyone, I haven't had spam (excusing traffic hungry bloggers!) for over a year now, it's really nothing to be putting people off commenting on your blog for! It's the simplest of things to remove, but I appreciate that not everyone has swotted up on the ins and outs of Bloggers many settings (I should know, it took me ages!). Here's how to remove Captcha from comments!
Go to Settings > Posts and comments > Show word Verification > No!
