Logged in but cannot comment
I cannot comment on other wordpress blogs. I am logged in but when I submit a comment, an error message states, ‘Sorry, you must be logged in to comment.” Logging out and back in doesn’t work. Hard refresh doesn’t work. I can comment on my own blog, but not others’.
Your login information for the purpose of commenting applies only to sites that are hosted by wordpress.COM and that allow commenting by logged in wordpress.COM users.
That login information does not apply to sites running wordpress.ORG software on paid hosting.
WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different username accounts, logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support documentation and separate support forums. Read the differences here http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
You did not provide the URLs of the sites you cannot comment on but you can determine where they are hosted by typing the URLs into http://www.whoishostingthis.com/
The one that prompted this topic is a wordpress.com site. It has been since inception and I checked again before posting and it still is. The URL is bedrockandparadox.wordpress.com.
