    I’m trying to figure out how to make my name a link back to my blog when I post a comment on someone else’s blog. Any help? Thanks.

    It should work on WordPress.com; I see your name as a link to your blog. Note that different blogs will do this differently and some don’t facilitate the links at all. If they’re non-Wordpress blogs they might or might not have the option to put in a URL for the link.

    Dashboard -> Users -> Your profile -> Fill out the slot labeled Your Website. It’s a URL so be sure to include the http:// bit

    Hope this helps,

    edit: The forum profile is seperate from the wp.com profile so it may be working here and not elsewhere within wp.com. Can yopu point to a place where it didn’t work?

    in your dashboard, go to “edit profile”, and add put your blog’s address in the Website: field on the right hand side.

    it won’t be retroactive, though, it only works for new comments.

    Hey, thanks a lot ppl!

    I figured it had something to do with the website field so I filled it in. I didn’t fill in the website field in my profile previously. I thought it’d be retroactive, so that’s why I posted the question.

    All’s well now! Thanks again.

    Nah, it’s only from that point on. The URL gets saved within that blog’s database at the time the post is made.
