    WordPress.org blogs are self-hosted and not part of the WordPress.com network, so she will need to have a WordPress.com account.

    You can try to invite her via Users -> Invite New in your blog’s Dashboard. If she does not have a WordPress.com account, she will be asked to create one.

    I have tried the invite and it would not work, so i can only invite wordpress.com users. She has set up an account at .com

    Why can i not log into her blog to post a comment.

    I have tried the invite and it would not work, so i can only invite wordpress.com users.

    You can invite non-WordPress.com users, but they will be asked to create a WordPress.com account before they are added as a user to your blog.

    I have looked at http://dribblingpensioner.wordpress.com/ and I don’t see any invitations sent from you. Are you inviting her to a different blog? If so, what is the URL?

    Why can i not log into her blog to post a comment.

    Because she has a self-hosted WordPress.org blog, not a WordPress.com blog. You’ll need to register a user account specifically with her blog to comment.

    Sorry this is the blog but i have already deleted her .org site name.

    Ok, what was the username or email address that you tried to invite?

    #979935

    Macmanx, i don’t remember or have them any more but she is an author now with a wordpress site, this is the .org site.

    Yes, so her username won’t work her. You’ll need to invite her email address, at which point she will create a WordPress.com account, then be added to your blog here as a user.
