So, on some blogs, if you want to leave a comment there's an option to use your Wordpress profile. What the heck is it? I've tried putting in my username, and I've also tried putting in my blog's url (without the wordpress part, since it populates both). In either case, it gives me an error saying that I don't own that profile.

I do have a free wordpress blog, and I make sure that I'm logged in to Wordpress when I try to post my comments, but it doesn't work.

While on most blogs I also get the option to use my name and URL, not all of them give that option, and I kinda want at least the blog authors to know I'm coming 'round, y'know.

To be honest, your Wordpress profile is really your Gravatar profile.

When you go to any of your wordpress sites, go to Users>My Profile to see your user name. You'll also need to make sure your e-mail address matches as that is your "log-in."

Hope this helps!

Windsoar is right. Apply for a gravatar id and have your gravatar profile list your website, it'll link you to your site or anything else you want to be known for. It's great!

I have updated my Gravatar profile with everything excpet for verification through Blogger. I keep getting an error which says:

Quote:
Verification failed

We were unable to complete the verification of your Blogger account right now. Please try again a bit later.

Go back and try again.


I've been trying this for days with no positive outcome. Short of adding the email I use for WordPress and Gravatar to my google a/c it still doesn't work.

But since I don't like the 'bubblesofmischief' tag when I comment on Blogger with WordPress or RealID, I end up using 'Name/URL' which works but kind of defeats the purpose.
