So I'm slowly crawling out of my shell and starting to participate in discussions in blogs that I like. However, when I comment on someone else's blog using my wordpress account, my name shows up as my blog name (bossypally) instead of my username (Ophelie). I've tried to play around with the settings to change that, but nothing seems to work. For blogs that allow me to comment as username/URL, it's not a big deal, but some blogs require that I use a wordpress (or gmail or blogger) account. As much as I like my blog's name, I don't find "bossypally" to be the best way to make a good impression around strangers! If any of you could tell me how to fix this, I would be most appreciative.

I think what you're after can be found...

WP Admin -> Users -> Your Profile,
Edit the Nickname field to be whatever you like (Ophelie most likely), then in the drop down box just below that field, 'Publicly Displayed Name' or some such, the nickname you entered should be an option.

Select that, save, hopefully issue sorted! :)

I had tried that, but it didn't work :(

Oh well, I'll stick to commenting on wordpress blogs and blogs that let me use name/URL.

Thanks for trying! :D
