So I just got an email from someone saying I have captcha on my blog! Has anyone else come across this here? And after I recently complained how much I hate seeing it on blogs too!!!
If it is up, I cannot figure out where so any tips would be appreciated. I want to keep commenting as simple as possible .
Okay, so I did a bit of investigating and found this:
"The Blogger / Google login status, and the ability to post comments, is
sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) "third party cookies",
in their browser and on their computer. The effects of the newly
unavoidable CAPTCHA, and the Google "One account" login, requires third
party cookies, even more than before."
As found in the help forums. I Guess this is called 'recaptcha' and it was something that I have no control over that I can find.
So to my readers that are getting this (about 1/4 it seems), you can check to see what is going on with your browser or bear with the evil recaptcha. If I can figure something out on my end I will do what I can. If anyone has more information I would love to know. I am so, so sorry that this new hassle has popped up for some of you. You should be able to browse sites how you want and I am irritated that we don't even have a say in it. Plus, if I want robots posting on my blog, that should be MY choice, lol!
I appreciate everyone letting me know what they found when commenting here. Thanks!!!!
