  • Many posts on comments form, but I don’t see solution to this.
    Form clears comment after submission, but name and email STAY.

    This is your browser, not your blog.

    The user’s browser remembers form history..

    Plausible. Except I “clear recent history” in fire fox, even leave site and return, name & email still there. Should it matter that I am using recaptcha on comment submit?

    Please don’t post huge chunks of code here. For larger blocks of code, use the WordPress pastebin and post the pastebin url here. It makes life easier for everyone.

    It’s still a browser issue – not a WordPress one.

    Should it matter that I am using recaptcha on comment submit

    Nope – that won’t affect what your browser does/doesn’t save one bit.

    That’s not how it works. It’s not in your history (which only remembers the HTML and content of the page you visit).

    Firefox can remember login information for web pages so that you do not need to re-enter your login details every time you visit. This is basically what’s happening here.

    If you flush your cache, wipe your cookies, AND erase all saved information, it’ll stop. For a while. Until you enter it again 😉

    If you’re using firefox, and want to test.

    See here.

    Create a new profile and see if the problem occurs, if not then you know it’s saved form data or history from the old profile..

    This way you don’t have to remove any cookies or data from your regular profile… 😉
