Problem with Contact Form use

  1. I created a contact form on my site. I went through all your help information about using contact forms but they are all outdated severely. Each one mentions a tab for plugins and installing the plugin, but I don't have a plugin tab on my tabs. All I use is the little contact form whenever I create a new page or post. But my issue is not addressed in anything, my issue is that when I go to preview the form to see if everything is correct, it auto-populates the my username for the name field and my email address and website.

    Is it suppose to do that or is there something wrong with the contact form itself? I don't want my information to be shown there, I want it blank for people to be able to use. This is why I am not sure if it is a glitch or it is just showing me that it works and that when I go to publish it, all the fields will be empty.

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

    WordPress.com free hosted blogs and WordPress.ORG installs are different. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/ You are reading the wrong information. What applies to free hoisted WordPress.com blogs that we do not have FTP access to and we cannot install plugins into is this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/

    WordPress.com uses cookies to keep track of commenters so if someone makes a comment on your blog, the next time they come to your blog, unless they have cleared their cookies, WordPress.com will recognize them and complete the details for them. No one else will be able to view those details in comment boxes or in contact forms. The next person who comments will see blank fields. Commenters will not see each other’s details.

    While we are at it the same can be said about the Admin [edit] link. It's only for your convenience and only you can see it and use it while you are logged in.
