Changing Word Verification

Further to my word verification woes (see my earlier posting)...

With some instruction from Mr. DarkUFO from Blogger, we've been able to turn off our word verification.Yah! I was accessing Blogger via which turned out to be the problem.

Here is what DarkUFO told me to do (in case someone else out there runs into the same problem):
1. Ok, you need to stop using Draft Blogger. Using draft stops you from going back to the Old Interface.

2. Go to and on your dashboard there should be a checkbox/tickbox that says something like "Make Draft my default". Uncheck that then load

3. You should then see the Cog icon (little gray wheel) and in the dropdown should see the Old Blogger option.

And yes, there it was! So, let me know that it's working for sure, will you? That is to say, you shouldn't have to key in those two hard-to-read word verifications any more.

Another lesson learned in the world of blogging. Thanks DarkUFO!

Happy Day,

  5. So glad you got things sorted, Brenda. I had no idea that going with the new Blogger platform would mean you couldn't easily shut off the word verification.
