Thanks, but I’m even more confused than ever. You wrote: “It will recognizes the identity of only those WordPress.com bloggers who enter a WordPress.com username and a blog with the matching .wordpress.com URL. It will not accept any other username and URL combination.”
Well, I did that. I had to get my password reset, but that is what I did. My original error was ‘invalid password’ (not sure why, but to be safe, I reset it). That was when I got the ‘identity’ error.
