    I have been experiencing major difficulty when trying to comment and like on other WordPress sites. The sites that I experience these problems on are all sites that do not include as part of their domain name.

    My understanding is that the blogs are those that someone pays a premium to have their personal domain name only and the blogs are where the blog owners are using WP as the platform for building their own blogs. I'm really new at this and don't understand a whole lot about the technical and programming aspect behind blogging.

    I don't seem to have any issues with other blogs that are set up like mine is as a free blog on And the issues that I've had seem to be only when I interact with a WordPress blog that doesn't have wordpress as part of their domain name.

    I didn't realize that there are two separate logins with the different systems. I just thought WordPress was WordPress and if I'm a registered user in the WP system, it links to my profile if I'm logged in.

    Note that and WordPress.COM are completely separate and have logins.

  7. The link you provide is to a free hosted blog and if you are logged into and nothing happens when you click a like button or try to leave a comment that indicates you have a browser related issue.
