No recognition

  1. I do not have a blog ...yet. Altho i thought i might when i first signed onto WordPress, it was for access to friends' blogs and to be able to reply/comment. I am more or less permanently connected WordPress.com and successfully use that ID and my avatar to comment on several blog sites. Others simply refuse to recognize me. When i try to publish, they say "log in at WordPress;" so i double check and the WP page says, Welcome Pablo with my little symbol. So i try to publish and the blog responds, "you must sign in first." In the blank marked WordPress i.d., i re-type my username and it erases everything after telling me. "You do not own that name." The erasing part has been the most frustrating, until i learned the trick of always writing first in MSWord; don't trust WP... BUT, can you help me get it to publsih with my I.D. ? Thank you.
    Blog url:

  2. Which blogs are you trying to comment on?

  3. Don't recall URLs, 2 were on WP sites and one is blogspot.

  4. Your login is only effective when posting to free hosted WordPress.com blogs. It's not effective when you post to WordPress.org installs. Read this please > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    Trying to post comments on Blogger blogs is a drag. Open ID fails more often than it works. Blogspot software thinks we all have a single username here at wordpress.com and a single blog by the 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 it's next to impossible to leave a comment. 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.
