I'm pretty new to WordPress. I've set up my site (http://RodneyOnEarth.com). I've unchecked "User must be logged in to comment" under Options/General. I've also checked the box for "User must leave name and email to comment" under Options/Discussion.
When I go to leave a comment, I type in my name and email and comment text. I click to save. The new comment shows, but the name is always Anonymous.
When I go to admin page or "edit comment" to check the comment, the name field is empty. If i retype the name on the edit page, then it saves to DB and shows on the website with its comment info as it should (but it does not make it a hyperlink with the email, as the installed WP comment had.
Any help is welcome! thanks!
