    Hi there,

    Is http://anadmirer57.wordpress.com. the site you need help with?

    If it isn’t, can you post a link to your site?

    Hello, Gary68
    yes, thanks.
    That is the site I am looking for help with. It is the “free” (no cost) level, and I am wondering if that is why I do not see “remote publishing” anywhere in the settings>writing part of what I think is the admin panel.

    I am trying to use the “verified services” feature that links a wordpress.com blog to Gravatar and i get the message given in the subject line.
    Thanks

    XML-RPC is already enabled by default here at WordPress.com.
    Make sure that you have the correct XML-RPC URL:
    See here http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc/

    Also note that a WordPress.com account and a gravatar account are one in the same thing. If you still need help type modlook into the sidebar tags on this thread for a Staff follow-up. How do I get a Moderator/Staff reply for my question? https://en.support.wordpress.com/getting-help-in-the-forums/#how-do-i-get-a-moderatorstaff-reply-for-my-question Also subscribe to this thread so you are notified when they respond and be patient while waiting.

    Thank you TimeThief and other helpful repliers. I am having no more progress than before.
    I tried the ideas you mentioned, and created a blog post with the images that show and explain my procedures and results:

    I will check the modlook suggestion and hope to follow up.

    Hi there,

    I am trying to use the “verified services” feature that links a wordpress.com blog to Gravatar

    Your WordPress.com and Gravatar accounts are linked automatically. Are you trying to add verified services here?:

    https://en.gravatar.com/profiles/edit#your-links

    When you visit that link, you should see two options:

    https://cloudup.com/clFTGNxcdPq

    I looked at the example in your post and https://anadmirer57.wordpress.com/xlmrpc.php isn’t a valid URL. If you are logged into this account, the site should appear in the list when you click ‘Add WordPress.com Site’.

    I do not see “remote publishing” anywhere in the settings>writing

    We support posting by email, is that what you are looking for?

    https://en.support.wordpress.com/post-by-email/

    Post by email can be set up in your Writing settings.

    Thank you @gemmaceveans. After reading more about my question – thanks to the links you provided – I think I understand the issue. It seems that wordpress.org is the “wordpress” given in the Gravatar link list. I hadn’t been aware there was a difference. Ha!

    Thanks as well to @garysixtyeight and @timethief.
    With your help it is clearer to me how the system works between the groups Gravatar invites users to connect.

    Is there a way to give credit on WordPress.com? (Obviously, I am new here ;)

    Yes, there are versions of WordPress, WordPress.com and WordPress.org:

    https://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    The ‘add a website’ option is where you would add a WordPress.org site.

    Is there a way to give credit on WordPress.com? (Obviously, I am new here ;)

    What sort of credit do you mean?

    I’m glad you’re all sorted now. If you need any more help though, you know where we are :)

    What sort of credit do you mean?

    oh, I just meant like a “thumbs-up” kinda thing, or a star — like they have on Apple help forums.
    Thanks!

    Oh I see what you mean! There isn’t a feature for giving credit to forum users but if timethief and garysixtyeight are subscribed to this thread, they should see your thanks :)
