Commenting on Google Blogger blogs with WordPress Id

  1. When I try to do this using our my id it doesn't allow it and comes back with a message saying that

    WordPress.com

    You do not own that identity.

    Any ideas

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

  2. Yep, this is the classic Fail. Generally speaking, I avoid using OpenID and the Wp.com ID, and instead choose Name/URL option.

    So, is there ANYONE at wordpress.com that can solve this problem? Or, do we just give up?

    I answered you in another thread.

    In reference to Blogger the issue is on the other end. Blogspot software assumes we all have a single username here at wordpress.com and only a single blog by the exact same matching name. It will not accept any other URL. So if we have a domain or more than one blog registered under the same WordPress.com username trying to comment becomes impossible, unless the blogger chooses to enable commenters to post with a username and URL on their Blogger blog. The only workaround is to register a Blogger blog which will allow you to comment but your username will not be linked to your WordPress.com blog when you do. Then you are labeled as a 'no reply blogger'. It's crazy-making!

    There is no blog linked to your username. Here's how to link your primary blog to your username. Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Primary Blog‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes.

    Now every time you sign into the forum we can all click on your username and your blog will be linked to it. And every time you leave a comment on a blog your username can be likewise clicked and your blog can be instantly located.
