Hal... do you have experience with blog and the Comments feature? I ask because when in 2012 I discontinue regularly scheduled AI "issues" and had a blog installed as an ancillary to the site for ongoing reviews, I got blasted with bots posting advertising comments. I then enabled the feature where comments would be submitted for my approval before posting and the chore got so overwhelming that I just ended up disabling comments altogether. Just curious what yours, or others, experiences with this has been.
Jerry, I have been using the BLOG feature on my personal website and I have not experienced any problems with spam. I do not anticipate any problems here in this blog either, because I have two forms of Spam Protection enabled: Smart CAPTCHA and Smart Moderation. I have sent a request to Weebly Support asking them to explain how those things work.
Congrats! In a very short time EC, is really getting to be a nice place to contribute and hang around!
question: have you got an idea how it comes that most of the time my website doesn't show up in the comments? You know what I mean... the little arrow after my name, when I give a comment.
Frank, thank you for the question. You can see below that I did a TEST. I entered my website address into the Comment Form and it worked correctly. Are you entering the exact URL? Example - http://www.haltapes.com/
I tried with those and mostly it doesn't work.
I am going to test it, Frank
yet another test
Frank, I think that I have solved the mystery! Do not put https:// in the address.
works fine and so does
Hal, you are a genius! I hope you can delete some of the Test test test-stuff. Thanks a lot!
