I couldn't resist this "Captcha Awareness" Day, so if you'll oblige me with a quick post that could very well pertain to you if you use Blogger ....
Around the blogosphere, bloggers are posting in effort to reduce the amount of captcha requirements that many still use on their blogs. If you do, no biggie. We still love you. We just wanna remind you that you can disable the feature and your followers will love you all the more for it.
Let's face it, the captcha phrases are blurry and hard to read and half the time I get them wrong when I enter them. This slows my blog visits down in a big way and reduces the amount of blogs I'm able to visit. Those blogs without the captcha feature are user friendly, and that's what we want when we blog, right?
If you're not sure whether this feature is enabled on your blog, take a moment to check and be a friend to your fellow blogger by disabling. If later you find bogus comments, you can always enable again. I've had mine disabled for two years now and never had a problem.
Here's what you do:
From your Blogger Dashboard go to Settings on the bottom left
There will be a sub menu. Select Post and Comments
From there you can select NO on Show Word Verification
Then just make sure to Save.
That's it! Plain and simple and your followers will thank you! Feel free to spread the word with your own post on how to remove the captcha craptcha. You can click on the pic above to find others posting about today.
What are your thoughts on captcha? Is there a reason why you've chosen to keep it? Will you help spread the word? Any news to share? Happy Monday!
