Unable to leave comments on Blogger sites
Hi I’m new to Word Press, former Blogger user. Since switching i’ve been unable to leave comments on any Blogger sites, keep getting the message Open ID can’t be verified. I’ve tried logging off my Google + account but no change. These particular sites ask me to put my username in which then prefills the URL for my site, but my WP user name is not the same as my site name. Very confused, any advice would be appreciated.
The blog I need help with is fluffynonsensecom.wordpress.com.
The blogspot.com software is not recognizing your WordPress.COM identity. This is a very common issue.

The bottom line is that the blogspot software expects your blog to be the same as your username ie. it expects your username to be linked to a wordpress.COM blog URL that exactly matches your username.
When that isn’t the case the software will not allow you to link to any other URL in a comment. So the blogspot.com bloggers have to change their settings for comments for you to be able to comment as
fyreryder and link that username to https://thehorsedream.wordpress.com/
RATS! I forgot to edit and remove the last line above. Please ignore it. The rest is correct.
Thanks so much timethief, that makes perfect sense and covers my problem (am secretly pleased I was making enough sense for AN Other Human to understand me). I’ll have a good read on those, thanks again.
I understood you immediately and was happy that I could help, though the answer isn’t a great one. You’re welcome and best wishes.
