  2. Hi, Chrissie, I just found your blogsite by accident, when I was looking for a way to turn off my word verification comment at the end of my blog. It was there and I didn't realize they had readded it. I had it turned off some time back, but voila, there it was again! I checked under settings in the design and I have it off there, but somehow they have readded it. Can you help me? I wanted to tell you, too, while I am here, your products are beautiful! I am a quilter and have lost count of how many I have done. Best wishes to you. I hope you can help me. Google help is no help at all. Thanks.

    1. I'm afraid I have no idea why your word verification setting would reset to 'on' if you've set it to 'off' and saved your settings. I did a tutorial on how to turn off word verification a couple of years ago - click here to go to the tute. The only thing that maybe could go wrong is if you turned the verification off and then left the screen without clicking the 'save settings' button. My tute has images of how your screen will look and where to find the 'save settings' button. Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope this helps in some way - Chris :D
