    I have a private blog and I want to be able to invite users to visit the blog but they don’t need a blog – they just need an account. It used to be that there was an option to request only a username and password – not a blog. I don’t see that option anymore in the sign up form. thanks for the help

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

    That option “just a username account please” still exists it’s just not that noticeable. See also > Inviting Contributors, Followers, and Viewers – Invite People to View Your Private Blog

    Hi,
    thank you for the response – the problem is that when they click on the link to register – it takes them to the page that only allows them to sign up for a blog – and not just a username/password – I have looked at the registration page and it only allows you to sign up for a blog – which they don’t want.

    I’ve already replied directly to the support request you sent by email, so that I can get further details about your invited viewer who’s having a problem.

    The default registration form includes a link to ” signup for just a username” directly to the right of the prompt to create a blog address:
    https://signup.wordpress.com/signup/

    For an invited viewer whose email address isn’t recognized as a WordPress.com user, the link they receive by email to create an account takes them directly to this username only signup form:
    https://signup.wordpress.com/signup/?user=1

    Please note that for checking out either of the links above — in case you’d like to see exactly what an invited viewer would see — you should first sign out of your own WordPress.com account.
