User name in comment doesn't link to blog (3 posts)

    When I'm logged in into WordPress and I comment on someone else's WordPress blog, WordPress will automatically use by blog name and avatar.
    But, it doesn't link that name automatically to my blog in the same way it does that for all the other people who have posted a comment. Is one of my settings wrong? Or do I really have to log out first and then type my blog URL every time I comment? That would seem rather odd.

    I can hardly imagine that this has anything to do with it, but do you have your blog address in the user information in your admin?

    My profile did have my 'primary blog address', but the 'website' line was empty. So I wrote my blog URL there and wahey I do get a 'linked name' now when I comment. But now WordPress no longer shows my avatar. :-) I'll have to check that one out now.
    Anyway, thanks for the tip Gangleri!
