    I am confused with the amount of accounts I need in order to post on multiple WordPress platforms.

    For instance, my log-in that works perfectly fine on WordPress.com and WordPress.org both were denied several times on http://www.waitingfornextyear.com that asked for a WordPress log-in.

    How do I know where my log-in information will work and will not work?

    As well, I see no link on WaitingForNextYear to register for a new account. How do I gain access?

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    First, WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG in fact require different logins. They're not tied together because they are different services which share little beyond the name 'WordPress.'

    Second, self-hosted installations of WordPress (which is what we cover here) would be managed by the individual or group running the site, and their login/registration will be completely separate from both WordPress.ORG and WordPress.COM (as well as every other self-hosted WordPress installation out there).

    Finally, the blog you link to appears to provide a login for the authors/admins of the site, and most likely they do not offer open registration. I'm not sure why you're looking for it. A cursory check shows comments to be open (no reg required). Why do you need to register there?

    I have no idea what you're talking about. Where does the site ask for a login? Is it your site? If not, of course you can't login. If it is then obviously the other login info won't work. You have to use the info emailed to you by your host when you installed WP.

    As well, I see no link on WaitingForNextYear to register for a new account.

    Then they have registrations disabled. But as I said, you haven't made yourself clear as to what you are talking about.

    Edit: looks like Kafkaesqui is quicker on the keyboard than I. ;)
