WordPress Bloggers Want To Comment Too!

Many of you are kind enough to visit my blog and leave a comment. Naturally, I visit back and  look forward to reciprocating. Yet more often than not, my comments are not accepted because my Open ID credentials cannot be verified, and it’s been driving me crazy! I looked into this maddening problem, and the always helpful Happiness Engineers ( don’t you love the name!) at WordPress explained what’s causing it. Just to clarify, this is strictly a problem with commenting on Blogger blogs.

Turns out it’s been going on for years, and it’s a Blogspot software issue. One way around this, aside from Blogspot fixing things, is if bloggers enable commenters to post with a username and URL. Another way is for WordPress bloggers to open a Google account and comment through that account. So for all those who think we WordPress bloggers are just plain rude, it’s not our fault! Maybe it’s time we all put some pressure on Blogspot to fix things, nudge, nudge, hint, hint 😉

  1. I was having the same problem and it was driving me CRAZY too. I figured out that if I always type in the whole username (not click on the one that pops up) just http://www.chicenvelopements then it automatically fills in the rest and it seems to work.
    PS I just figured this out yesterday. So far so good.

  2. Oops, don’t type in the http:// (that showed up in my comment when it posted) just the www part.

  3. Just gave it a try, and unfortunately it didn’t work. I’ve tried every possible combination. When Name/URL is enabled, it’s fine, otherwise I just give up.

  4. I have the same problem, and I hate not being able to leave comments. I will try the www. name. com thing. Thanks!
