Thanks TDavid!

If you haven’t noticed, my comments have been a little fritzy lately.  I’ve been playing with a couple of thing since I became frustrated with Akismet.  TDavid was nice enough to give me the info on the captcha software that he uses and even offered to allow me the use of a modification that he made.

Unfortunately, there’s something buggy with my template and the mod just doesn’t seem to work at all.  It’s not the mod, because it works on TDavid’s website, but merely something with the template here.  So, if you were unable to make a comment this afternoon and evening, it was because if my toying with it.  If you didn’t even try to make a comment, shame on you. 😉

I’ve turned off the captcha for the moment, but will probably turn it back on tomorrow without TDavid’s mod.  What that means is that you will have to do the captcha everytime you leave a comment.  I’m sorry that I have to make you do that, but it’s either that or try and filter through 300+ spam comments a day.  I don’t want to do that because it takes away time I could be writing great content for you.

I do want to take the time to throw a great big thank you to TDavid who took extra time out of his busy schedule to help me test and trouble shoot for a little while this afternoon.  It was above and beyond what most people would have done and for that he deserves my thanks.  It was very gracious of him!  Thanks TDavid!

  1. You’re welcome, mon, although if it’s not working then I really haven’t helped you that much 🙁 Perhaps when I get some more time you’d consider allowing me to look at your WP install and debug this for you. If that offer is of interest — no charge, BTW — then drop me an email and let me know and I’ll get back to you when the time is right.


  1. […] often (about every other month) I get a little jaded over my online goings on.  Something like my trouble with the captcha plugin from a few days ago brings me down and I get a bit blue about the whole thing.  It isn’t that I’m not […]
