New contact form shows my email address

  1. Hi, I've just added a contact form to my blog and when I view the live page, it shows my email address. Having searched the help section, I see that it states that your email address will never be shown. I don't want my email address visible so what do I do?

    The blog I need help with is chocolategoose1.wordpress.com.

  2. Not to worry. WordPress.com uses cookies to keep track of commenters so if someone makes a comment on your blog, the next time they come to your blog, unless they have cleared their cookies, WordPress.com will recognize them and complete the details for them. No one else will be able to view those details in comment boxes or in contact forms. The next person who comments will see blank fields. Commenters will not see each others details.

  3. P.S. Still don't believe me? Then log out, clear your browser cache and cookies http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050 and then visit your site without logging in as any visitor will do.

    Note: The Admin [edit] link is only for your convenience and the convenience of your Editors if you have any. And only you and your editors can see it and use it while you are logged in to WordPress.com.
