How To Take Word Verification Off

05 January 2013

I have notice that there are still a lot of bloggers that have the word verification active. I don't know why. I'm thinking maybe it's because they haven't figured out how to get rid of it. I know it's there to eliminate spam messages but I've never received any spam and mines have been off almost the entire time that I have been blogging. So I figured I would create a post that shows you how to turn the WORD VERIFICATION off.

Step 1: Go to your dashboard and select SETTINGS (on the left side of the screen)
Step 2: Look underneath the settings menu and select POST AND COMMENTS
Step 3: Where it says SHOW WORD VERIFICATION select NO
Be sure to follow my blog so you can stay updated and informed!

    1. I think you should keep it on if you are getting spam. A lot of us dont get the spam messages.

  3. Good post.. Word verification is annoying. I definitely think bloggers should have it turned off. I know I'm not the only one who hates it.

    I actually get spammed quite a bit but I have my comment moderation on so I accept or reject any comments before they get published.

    1. I didnt even mention this. Thanks for bringing up the comment moderation. That's what should be used to control spam.
