    If you read back in the help forum you will find all sorts of questions ask and answered. Just do a bit or reading here and look at the support documents at: http://en.support.wordpress.com/

    Well, lately, I’ve been unfortunate to be a person who likes to read and comment on a blog daily that just happens to be running with WordPress. I used to be able to come here and look up the comments that I posted on that blog, and now I can’t get to the dashboard to even SEE the link to get to my comments on that blog.

    Those of you who own blogs that you host with WordPress may be happy, because you need to work with them. But my interest is in the BLOG I like, not WordPress. As such, the changes they are doing and making things confusing and inaccessible, are a real pain to those of us who just want to comment and be able to go back to the comments we’ve made on the BLOGS we like, not be put through a rigamarole by the hosting service. And, I want to read and comment on that blog, not spend a lot of time wading through questions and answers that may or may not exist in some forum. Just please get your stuff working halfway decent, would ya? Thanks.

    If you tell us exactly what the URL starting with http:// is for the blog you refer to reading daily and explain your problems, we may be able to help with whatever issues you are experiencing. Would you like to do that?

    Nowhere I go on wordpress.com, even though I am logged on with my account, I simply cannot get to the dashboard no matter what I do no matter what link I click nothing gets me to the dashboard. It seems like everything here is geared to people that own blogs. I do not own a blog. I simply subscribed to a blog, and that’s why I’m a WordPress member. For people like me, that have to use WordPress simply because of the blog we like is using it, the changes are nothing but a big pain.

    Yes, everything here is geared towards people who blog. It’s a blog host.

    Hundreds, if not thousands, of people have been complaining they can’t use their Reader etc anymore, including people who blog. Staff are aware of the issue but as far as I can see there’s no solution.

    I believe if you register with Cocomment.com they will track every comment you make on any site. And it’s free.

    Go to Gravatar.com and change it there, or you can go to Dashboard->Users->My Profile and change it there.

    Well, that’s it then, right? I mean, people who have a wordpress blog, well, they roll with the changes, but their users, who suddenly are missing functionality they’used to having, are unhappy campers. Nice way to pull the rug out from under us. Thanks for the link to the comment site, I’ll use that and hopefully not have to come back here anymore.

    After reading about all the problems people are having with cocomment, it looks like I will have to pass. I guess my only alternative now is to try to urge profootballtalk.com to stop using wordpress in favor of another blog host.

    They are paying thousands upon thousands of dollars, though, so if THEY talk to staff, staff will work harder on the problem.
