If you are using Blogger (Blogspot) as your blogging platform, who am I to judge. It’s simple to design, easy to maneuver, and integrates seamlessly with Google Analytics, Feedburner, Picasa, Google Reader… Now that I think of it, it’s pretty gosh darn awesome if you ask me.
Google has even updated the Dashboard so that it’s very clean and cool. Unfortunately, what it has gained in style (so to speak), it has lost in functionality.
For instance, you can’t seem to remove the CAPTCHA (word verification) when people leave comments in the new Blogger interface. If you try looking in the Settings > Posts and Comments, there is no longer a section for word verification as there once was. It seems that the only way to make this adjustment is in the “old” Blogger interface. So how does one get around this?
Go to the “Options” icon. It’s looks like a little gear on the right side of the screen. Click on it and find the link to the Old Blogger Interface.
This will take you to the old interface. Click on the Settings and that will take you to Comments menu.
Scroll down, down, down…. even further down… to the options to turn OFF the word verification.
