sign in problems

  1. When I try to sign in to comment with my wordpress user name I get an error message saying I do not own that identity, yet when I sign into wordpress with my user name it opens fine.

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

  2. In order to access the blog you must be logged in under the exact same username account that registered the blogs and is the Admin of that blog.

    How many username accounts do you have? Are you logged in under the exact same username account that registered the blog and is Admin of the blog?

    Clicking this link should display all your blogs registered under the same username, including the hidden ones: https://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=my-blogs&show=hidden
    If you do not see the blog here http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/ then
    follow this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/#my-blogs-dashboard-visibility

  3. Hi, I just have one account and have logged in under the exact same username. I don't see however any place where I can confirm my admin status. -- The blog is in my name, I'm the only one with access to it, so when I attempt to sign in from another blog, in order to make a comment, why does my username fail? Why don't they link up?

  4. Your username can only be linked to one blog ie. your primary blog. Here’s how to link your username to your blog in your blog 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. Thereafter 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.

    In reference to posting comments on Blogger ie. blogspot blogs 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!

  5. I'm going to have to read this one a couple of times! too late tonight!
