WordPress ID (via Jetpack) and WordPress ID to comment.

  1. I have a WordPress ID (via Jetpack and my self-hosted blog) but cannot use it to post comments on other people's blogs.
    Blog url:

  2. Could you please send the links of the other blogs you are referring to?

    Screenshots are a huge help - can you please send screenshots of the issue so we can better understand the issue? Please see for information on making screenshots.

  3. Any WordPress-hosted blog.

    Here is one...

    I also get this when I try to change the convoluted username

  4. When you enter your username (second screenshot), there's a space behind it. Try to use backspace to remove that space, and give it another try.

  5. Hmm

    Still get errors, though of a different sort

  6. What's the address of the website in that screenshot?

  7. Could you try to click on the 'Preview' button first when commenting? It's the button on the right below the comment form.

    Otherwise you can try going to settings > open ID in your dashboard and add the URL of the blog to your "trusted" sites.

  8. Preview returns the same error

    Here's a few more blog's where I cannot post (again, same error, "you do not own that identity.. same identity I post here.)

    There is no "open ID" in my dashboard, as I have a self-hosted blog and the identity through jetpack.

  9. I'm sorry for the confusion. Open ID only works with accounts, not with Jetpack-enabled blogs.

    Feel free to create an account at in order to use Open ID.

  10. I've considered that. But can I link it to my existing wordpress ID? I.e. the one I post with here. Seems rather convoluted to keep track of 2.

  11. No, the OpenID only functions if you have a publicly accessible blog matching your username, for example
