    Hello,

    I hope someone here can tell me how can I add a web link to my username, when I make a comment on someone else’s wordpress.org site?

    I have gone into my profile settings and added a web address to where it says:
    website:

    I have not tried making a new post yet to the site, but when I refresh the site, I don’t see my previous posts highlighted with my web address link.

    Will my new posts have my name highlighted with my web link, or is there another trick to use to get this to work?

    I know it can be done, because some users have their name highlighted in blue with a web address linked to their name, while most other users do not have their name highlighted.

    Thanks in advance!

  • When you are on someone else’s site, their software determines if it is linked. If their site is WordPress, there should be a place to put your URL when you make the comment (unless you are registered as user there, in which case you can go to your user profile on their site and add your URL to your profile).
    What you do on your own site doesn’t affect their site.

    Yes I have added a URL to my profile, on their site, where it says website:

    I just would like to be sure that now, when I will post new comments,
    my name will be highlighted and when someone clicks on it, they
    will be taken to the URL I have.

    If that is correct, then my new post will mark a new beginning?
    All future posts will have this URL link, but all previous posts
    won’t? Is that how it works with WordPress?

    Each comment is saved with the name and URL as comment_meta.
    So, no, previous comments won’t have the URL. (they aren’t posts, but comments on posts)
    Comments have their own database table, separate from posts. And comment_meta is separate from comments.

    OK thanks Joy for the clarification. 🙂
