How To: Remove Comment Word Verification!

I don't know if this is just me, but I HATE it when you try to comment on a blog, and then the bloody word verification pops up? Now, not being funny, but speaking from my own experiences I don't get many spam comments anyway, & when I do, blogger usually automatically recognises them and doesn't publish, so there really is no need to have this on! Not to mention that its becoming harder and harder to actually decipher what the hell the words/numbers actually are on these things, its like trying to crack the Davinci code or something :/ It gets a little frustrating when you keep getting it wrong, and I'm sometimes tempted to just leave without commenting.

Here's a quick tutorial to show you how to turn off word verification...
(This tutorial is using the new blogger interface)

1. Go to your blogger home page.
2. Go to settings from the drop down box:

3. In the sidebar click on 'Posts and Comments' 
4. Find where it says 'Show Word Verification' 
5. Make sure this says 'No' 

6. Save your settings using the orange box in top right corner. 

& You're done! This will make it easier for people to comment on your blog :)
Any questions, let me know below...


  1. Wow, I just read a post talking about this by another blogger! I definitively agree that the word verification is annoying! But just the other day I got a spam comment that asked me how to put the captcha thing onto the comment form... which is strange because I disabled mine a long time ago and they left a link( I was afraid to click on it) I think blogger should make that optional instead of default. Can you do a tutorial on how to add social media icons onto your blog? I just love your log design! :)

  2. i wish i'd read this post before i took about two hours to figure this out! haha, such a helpful post! :)xo

  3. LOVE this post! - If you tweet me the link of it on twitter to "jewelbeautyblog" I will happily spread the word for you haha!

  6. I hate word verification, especially when I'm using a phone or something with a smaller screen. So glad I found this, you made it super easy!! Thanks so much for the tip!
