WordPress commenting problem

June 10, 2012

A faithful friend has brought to my attention the fact that the commenting system on this blog is acting up. If you try to comment, you may get a message saying, “Please log in to post your comment”, like so:

This is odd, because I do not require that people login in order to leave comments:

The problem may only afflict those who either have a WordPress account or have a gravatar.

I am annoyed that this is happening. Unfortunately the free WordPress blogs (like this one) don’t have a help desk to call, so I am not sure what to do. In the meantime a workaround is to enter a false email address (or leave the email address field blank) when leaving a comment.

Sorry for the inconvenience. I am hoping that this is a temporary problem that will resolve itself. Wishful thinking, I know.

    I’m just wondering if I can leave a comment.

    Someday, I will be able to read more. Maybe in a couple of weeks.
