Email address of last person to comment keeps showing up in comment box

  1. The last person who posted a comment on my blog, when she tried, a strange email address came up (Dr. XXX). She doesn't know the name of that person.

    Now, when I click on the "leave a comment box" her email address and name is appearing (all the time).

    When my husband went to comment on one of my postings, my personal email address (not one that I associate with this blog) showed up with my name. I'm panicked as these are privacy issues. How do I change this?

    Can someone please try to leave a comment on one of my posts and tell me if the "Name" and "Email address" is blank, as it should be, or you are seeing the last visitors info?


    The blog I need help with is

  2. On your Butterscotch Post - logged in I see my own info - logged out it is different info for me and info that I entered some time back (WordPress.COM remembers some info about people with a cookie) - no info was seen for your other visitors

  3. Whew! Thanks. I found out it was a cookie tracking issue. I panicked because I want to ensure the privacy of all my visitors!

    Appreciate the quick reply and testing you did!

  4. You be welcome & the cookie recipe looks great -
