what does this mean?

    I get this message when I try to use my Word Press id as login to a blog

    You do not own that identity.
    Blog url:



    Please post an active link starting with http:// to the blog you are experiencing this issue on.

    How many username accounts and blogs do you have?
    Are you sure you logged out of one account and cleared you cache and cookies http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050 before trying to log in under another username?


    This is one of the sites – it is on blogspot and it tells me I can use my WordPress Id to post my comment.

    But sometimes when I try to log into this blog which is on WordPress I get the same error



    Posting comments to Blogger ie. blogspot.com blogs is now and has always been problematic. Open ID fails more often than it works. The Blogger software expects you to enter the exact same blog URL as your WordPress.com username, which of course is silly given we have other blogs.

    Unless the blogger on the blogspot blog chooses to implement the comment option of posting using a username and URL you will not be able to post a comment. You can get a Blogger blog and use it only for leaving comments on blogspot blogs but otherwise, that’s the way it is.


    thanks I will forward it…
    do you know why I got the same error when I tried to login to a WordPress blog



    The second link you posted is to a WordPress.org blog and we provide wupport here only for WordPress.com blogs. Sorry, but I can’t help with it.
