Why can't I comment on wilwheaton.net?

    While logged into WordPress, wilwheaton.net will not recognize me as being logged in. When I try to log in with a prompt from the blog, it won't recognize my log in and password, which work just fine to log me into wordpress.com This is unacceptable, and incredibly frustrating, since there's absolutely no reason such a problem should exist. I would like to get this fixed, sooner, rather than later, because this does not make me want to use wordpress or tell my friends about it.

  2. http://wilwheaton.net/ is a self-hosted WordPress installation and not part of WordPress.com.

    If he requires you to log in to comment, you'll need to register for an account on his site.

    Thanks for the info, but it's not exactly helping me. I can't register with my wordpress to comment on Wheaton's wordpress, because my name is already registered. When I followed a post on his website (which I commented on through Facebook), it appeared in my wordpress dashboard as a post I'm following, yet I cannot use that account to comment on another wordpress account. This is absurd.

  4. WordPress.org and WordPress.com are completely separate.
    WordPress.org bloggers can set up a registration for commenting on their blogs but we WordPress.com bloggers can't.
    This is NOT a WordPress.com issue.

    I did some digging and came up with a workaround. That wordpress.org sites will not let me use an existing wordpress.com account to comment, when I can do that on, say, equestriadaily.com, which does not use any form of wordpress, is still absurd.

  6. Let me state this more clearly please. Those who self host WordPress.org installs have the ability to set up registration for comments. That's their prerogative. It's not a WordPress.com issue. Hence continuing to post about it here on the WordPress.com forum is actually a waste of your time as we cannot help you.
