Can't sign in to comment on another blog

  1. http://www.negativland.com/news/wp-login.php

    Perhaps this is a wordpress.org blog with a custom domain name. Anyway, when I tried to log in it took me to a wordpress.org page. Tried to sign in to leave a comment with my wordpress.com login and it said no such user. I do not have third party cookies disabled. How do I create a wordpress.org account for signing into these types of blogs? I'm also going to contact Mark at Negativland and see if the trouble is on his end. Thanks.

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

  2. Two things. First: If you want to do anything on a WordPress.org blog then you're posting to the wrong forum. This is WordPress.com, you need WordPress.org for self-hosted blogs. Here's the page for the wordpress.org forums:

    http://wordpress.org/support/

    and to understand the difference between wordpress.com and wordpress.org, click this:

    http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/please-read-me-first-before-posting?replies=1

    There are a couple of links at the bottom of that page that'll give you extra info too.

    Next, if you need to comment on a self-hosted blog, you shouldn't need to log in unless you have a contributor role on the blog. Instead, you should just click the 'comment' button on a post or page there and comment as usual. So if you use the home URL which for the website you've given would be this: http://www.negativland.com that'll take you to the site itself.

    I had a look though and most of the comments there are closed. As there isn't a contact page it appears like the blog admin doesn't want anyone to contact them. Can't help any more than that.
