Since I enabled Jetpack on this site, it appears that there was a problem in posting comments.
All comments were rejected because the security capchta was not filled in by the comm enter However it wasn’t there fault as the security question was not asked !!
I have now removed the Jetpack comment section, and hope the original one comes back.
Removing it was difficult to find, but easy when you know.
In the Jetpack settings, click on “Learn more” and a “Deactivation” option will appear to the right of the “Learn More” button.
