Invalid Username at log in.

  1. I'm trying to log in to post a comment on another persons blog and I keep getting the invalid username error although I am typing the correct username.

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

  2. 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!

  3. Thing is, the blog I'm trying to comment on is hosted by WordPress I think and to comment its required that I log in..but I can't log in!

  4. I'll bet that it's not a free hosted WordPress.COM blog. I'll bet it's a WordPress.ORG srlf hosted install and the blogger requires a membership log-in to post comments. Just post the URL please so I can verify.

  5. Oh my word yes! I do get the .ORG when I click on the logo! Website is isaacdeitz.com

    Thank you so much for your help!

  6. You're welcome.

  7. Any idea what I could do? I really would like to post the comment.

  8. I don't know whether or not the blogger simply requires registering a WordPress.org username account, which can be done on the top right hand corner of this page (warning use a different email address) http://wordpress.org or if they requires some other registration so I can't help you. All I can say is check the site for instructions.
