I am currently able to log in fine to my blogs. No problem there.
Today I visited a friend's blog, and when I tried to add a comment there I was asked to log in via WordPress. But my usual ID/password was not accepted. So after several attempts, out of frustration I clicked "Lost your password?". A few minutes later a message arrives in my email box, to enable me to reset my password.
BUT - this message shows a different ID (let's say my usual ID is "mickf", and this message shows "mickfraser123"). Why would a message come to MY mailbox with a different ID?
Anyway, I click the Reset Password link in the message, which takes me to a log-in page showing this new ID. I re-enter my usual password and it is accepted.
So the situation now is that I can still login to my blogs in the old way. But to log in via WordPress from my friend's blog, or directly from wordpress.com, I have to use this new ID plus my old password.
How can I kill off "mickfraser123" and reinstate "mickf" for ALL my WordPress activities?
Thanks for any advice (the WP suppport team is away till August 15).
