When I try to log in to post a comment on a blog, WP now demands that I type in the url of _my_ blog – but I don’t have one, don’t want one, just use WP for a consistent log-on ID. How can I log on via WP without creating another online maintenance chore (blog) that I don’t need or want?
In fact each blogger chooses whether or not to require an email address and/or a site URL when submitting a comment. Also note that the prompt for both an email address and site URL will appear even if the blogger has not set up their comments to require the same.
1) I don’t understand – the blogger chooses what to require, but the prompt shows up either way?
2) The question seems to be (at present, anyhow) moot: on a different post, the customary “Log In” button returned, and WP signed me in without any fuss. All this may have been connected to a format change at the blog group involved, with me having the bad luck to try to comment while the new template(s) were being installed.
