Email issues with WordPress, help please? :-(

  1. I bought a domain to change my URL here to show as it is and take the wordpress out. But before then when I try to reply to others blogs I am getting the below. I don't have another account here. I have the email it's asking me below but not on WordPress. Any help would be great.

    I get this when I try to login to WordPress support a few times:
    Log in Failed
    The username or email [email redacted] does not exist here on WordPress.org. Register it?
    This is where you can log in for the support forums on WordPress.org. If you are trying to log into your own site that runs WordPress, you need to do that on your own site, not here.

    I get this when I try to Reply to blogs sometimes:
    Are you Shaun Gibson?
    You are being asked to login because [email redacted] is used by an account you are not logged into now.

    Thanks.. Shaun

    The blog I need help with is shaunynews.com.

  2. From your post, it looks like you were trying to log into WordPress.org forums rather than the WordPress.com forums. :)

    Your site shaunynews.com is hosted here on WordPress.com. WordPress.org is the home of the free software available to download to host elsewhere, as well as their own set of support forums. For more about the differences, see: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    It looks like you registered shaunynews.com and pointed it to shaunynews.wordpress.com successfully, and you were able to log into your shaunynews user account to post here.

    You can view the email address associated with your WordPress.com account here: https://wordpress.com/settings/account/

    Does this help you out, or do you still have questions?

  3. Thank you Jackie! That took me to the page showing the email I used to start this blog and no other. It isn't everyone, but some people I try to reply to on their blog, it tells me I am trying to use another email...

    I am a PC Tech and this is a real head scratcher.
    I will see how it goes next few days. The people I was having trouble reply to, we both unfollowed then re-followed.

    Thanks a lot for now..
    Shaun

  4. Is it possible that you have more than one WordPress.com account? Each account is connected to a unique email address.

    When you're logged into your shauntynews WordPress.com account (or just have active browser cookies) and try to comment on a blog on WordPress.com or connected via Jetpack or using Gravatar, the comment form will expect you to enter the email address associated with your account, because it will then authenticate you. You'll get an error if you try using a different email address.
