  • What is the WordPress.com Account?

The WordPress.com account is a kind of identifier, a kind of key that enables you to access the premium content on BioplasticsNews.com. In other words, you need a WordPress.com account to access the premium content on BioplasticsNews.com. You will be asked to enter your email during the payment process. There are two options:

(1) There is already a WordPress.com account associated with that email; then the subscription will be associated with that wordpress.com account and no new account will be created.

(2) There is no WordPress.com account associated with that email; then a new account will be created automatically.

Once the purchase is completed, you will receive an email with more info and login instructions for your new WordPress.com account.

BioplasticsNews.com will recognise your WordPress.com account as having the rights to access the premium content. This recognition happens automatically. You don’t have to do anything. It happens through the storage of cookies on your browser.

However, you may have to login manually the first time, but afterwards the website should recognise you automatically.

One last thing: there is no BioplasticsNews.com “user interface or dashboard”. There’s only one for your WordPress.com account.

  • What should I do if I have problems to login on BioplasticsNews.com?

You are able to login on the website (BioplasticsNews.com) through your WordPress.com account; it acts like a key.

A common reason for not being able to login

(1) your wordpress.com username of password may be incorrect. Your username can be found in the emails you receive from WordPress.com. You may have lost your password and should reset it (see hereunder).

(2) Bioplasticsnews.com does not recognise your wordpress.com account. You may have to login manually. Usually, recognition happens automatically through cookies stored on your browser. In some cases, you may have to help your browser re-store your wordpress.com details by login in manually. If this doesn’t work, you may have to clear your browser cache and cookies (see hereunder) and login manually again like for the first time.
