Notes from underground

WordPress, please fix this bug!

I sometimes want to make a comment on a self-hosted WordPress blog, and I’m asked to enter my e-mail address, my name and my web page address.

When I do, I get this message:

Are you Steve Hayes?

You are being asked to login because shayes@dunelm.org.uk is used by an account you are not logged into now.

By logging in you’ll post the following comment to The Anniversary Gift:

So I log in, and it takes me to the dashboard of my blog.

I navigate my way back to the blog I wanted to comment on, and enter the information again, and it responds:

Are you Steve Hayes?

You are being asked to login because shayes@dunelm.org.uk is used by an account you are not logged into now.

And so on, ad infinitum.

This bug has been reported before, long ago, and it is extremely annoying. And its one reason I think self-hosted blogs are a bad idea.

 

 

Why I hate self-hosted WordPress blogs

I tried to post a comment on a selfhosted WordPress blog, and got this message.

Are you Steve Hayes?

You are being asked to login because shayes@dunelm.org.uk is used by an account you are not logged into now.

So I logged out and logged in again, and tried to post the comment, and got the same message.

So I logged in again without logging out first, tried to post the comment again and got the same message.

The comment I wanted to post was this:

By logging in you’ll post the following comment to To My White Nationalist Brothers:

Though it is not an Orthodox statement, I believe that the rebuttal of racism contained in A Message to the People of South Africa (link to PDF document), published in 1968 during the apartheid period, is also useful for Orthodox Christians. Orthodox bishops, and especially His Beatiotude Theodoros, Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and all Africa, have frequently denounced racism in their partoral encyclicals to the faithful.

WordPress.com / Gravatar.com credentials can be used.

That last statement is evidently untrue.
