Unlimited Users Feature

  1. I'm new to blogging and confused by the amount of people that can view my page. I want as many people as possible to be able to see the blog and comment on it. Is this limited to 35 people if I do not purchase the Unlimited Users premium feature? That feature says, only 35 users are permitted for each private blog. Is my blog private? I don't want it to be. Also, do people have to have a wordpress account to see my blog? How does wordpress keep the 36th person from accessing my blog anyway? Does that mean an error page comes up when they type in the domain name? Are these random people visiting my blog or people who are following my blog. Help!!

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

  2. If you have not specifically set your blog as Private, it isn't, and anyone can view it. I just did.

    That info is JUST for private blogs.

  3. If your blog is set to public which it is... You won't need to worry about the user limit for readers and comments.... as rain stated above the user limit is subject to private hosted blogs hosted here at WP.com...

  4. The Unlimited Users premium feature can also be used to allow more than 35 people to edit the site. With the free setup, you can only have a maximum of 35 contributors to the site.

  5. Actually, I was wrong. That only applies to private sites:

    The Unlimited Private Users upgrade is available to all WordPress.com blogs that have been set to private by their owners or administrators.

    The maximum number of users that can be added to a private blog is 35. If you would like a larger private community, you can purchase the upgrade to add as many as you like!

  6. Are my comments not showing or something?

  7. Thank you for the help!

  8. You're welcome!

  9. Hey Ryan,

    You seem to know your way around the wordpress.

    May I ask you a question?

    Let's say that I want to have a large list of subscribers to my blog but I want it to be public not private. Does that mean I would need another blog entirely or just another blog page in order to upgrade and give more than 35 people access to it?

    I'm trying to avoid the hassle of having a separate aweber type of account to distribute my growing content to.

    So can I, is there a way to use a wordpress upgrade to manage a lrger list of subscribers?

  10. The above limits apply only to Private blogs.

    There is no limit to the number of people that can subscribe to receive email notification when you have a new Post.

    If your blog is not set to Private you can have an unlimited number of people view your blog.
