Absolutely confused by logins

  1. I have a website that I started a week ago using my own domain. I cannot seem to log in to my "account" when I can easily log in to my website and make changes on the dashboard. I am very frustrated with this .com / .org confusion. Now I have just created a new account but it apparently has nothing to do with my week old account!

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

  2. We need the address of your website to give you accurate help. All of the accounts and URL's would be very helpful to help someone give you accurate help

  3. I started a blog at http://www.HelpSharkRiverHills.com last weekend. I can log into to it fine and update it. I tried adding Akismet and I have been in a loop ever since then trying to get an API. The site title is SRHPOA LTRC. I have tried "logging in" but apparently don't have an account. I broke down and created an Account that is apparently warrenlapp.wordpress.com but this has nothing to do with my WordPress page I created. People consider me somewhat intelligent but I have gotten very tangled up in what I thought was a simple process. I bought a domain, I bought hosting, I cannot make heads or tails of wtf I am in WordPress.

  4. Here are the instructions for getting an API key: http://en.support.wordpress.com/api-keys/

    Yes your account here at WordPress.COM is not connected with your HelpSharkRiverHills.com site -

    Pardon the stock answer below but it should answer a few more questions - The help forum at WordPress.ORG is yet another not related and different account to open up

    you need to make friends over at WordPress.ORG the keepers of the software you are using.

    This site is for support of sites hosted on WordPress.COM. You should address your questions to WordPress.ORG the keepers of the software you are using: http://wordpress.org/support/

    For more on the difference: http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    I hope that helps you a bit

  5. Thanks... at least I don't feel too stupid after reading your response. I'll head over to "org" and see what develops.

  6. You be welcome & good luck - yes it can be a bit confusing at first
