How cute is that? What a hoot! Don't know if you have word verification, or don't know how to turn it off if you do have it? Well, let me give you some simple instructions.
1. From your Dashboard, click Settings. Can't find it? Look at the top under Manage Blogs. The name of your blog should be under that. It should be the middle link button under your blog name.
2. When you arrive at the Settings page, click Comments UNDER the Settings tab. This is a subpage under Settings, not the main Comments page at the very top.
3. Scan almost to the bottom of the page and you will see "Show word verification for comments" with the options yes/no. Choose 'no'.
4. At the very bottom of the page, be sure to choose "Save settings".
You're done! Very easy. No big deal. And lots of happy followers not having to jump through hoops!
