Comment Problems? Just Disable Captcha.

I’ve noticed some of my HomeSchool Blogger friends are getting frustrated because it’s impossible to leave comments.  This is the reason:  In the latest HSB upheaval, SI Captcha was enabled on some blogs, but it’s not working properly.

Here’s what to do:

  1. Go to  your Dashboard
  2. On the left side, go to Plugins
  3. Click on SI Captcha Options
  4. Then remove the checkmark from the box that enables SI Captcha for your comments. 

After this, people should be able to leave comments again.

You can also adjust other comment settings and comment notifications by going to Settings on the left side of the Dashboard and clicking Discussion.

By the way, I’ve noticed that whenever there’s a technical HSB issue, my SI Captcha turns on, so I’m now in the habit of checking  and disabling it the moment I see one on another HSB blog.

I hope this helps a few of you!

    I finally figured this out for myself yesterday. I will be checking from now on. That’s a good idea.

    I am so frustrated, I don’t have any CAPTCHA options on my plugins, yet CAPTCHA is not allowing people to leave me comments. Ugh.
