cannot see "likes"

  1. Hi
    I received likes notifications via email, but no gravatars appear on my blog. I have checked all the boxes - I hope. Also, I cant see the likes button on my own blog pages. Please help, I would love to get moving with my blogging.

    thanks

    The blog I need help with is templeduguid.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi Simon,

    Based on the way we cache your site, it may take a short amount of time for the "likes" to catch up when you view them on the site, as I'm seeing the like on your site that you mentioned by e-mail to me.

    Are there other particular posts causing you issue?

  3. Hi that's strange because I can't see it... i can't see a like button in the actual blog section (on either of the 2 blogs) and i had a few likes for both - maybe ten in total, and that was around August 26. Can you see more than 1? thanks Simon

  4. (a) Exactly what kind of device you are using to connect to the internet and to WordPress.com.
    (b) Exactly which browser (and version of it) you’re using by checking here if necessary http://www.whatbrowser.org/

  5. Oops! I forgot to post the first sentence above.
    Please tell us:

  6. Hi there,

    Safari 6.05
    Firefox 23.0.1

    Normally Safari but I tried Firefox to see if it made a difference

    I use an Imac and connect to the web via a wireless router and broadband. Is that the info you are asking?
    The issue I have is restricted only to the actual 2 blog posts I have made. So it's not universal across the site. I receive email confirmation of other blogger's "likes" but nothing appears on my page.
    Thanks

  7. Thanks for the information. You're using browsers that should work with our Likes.

    When viewing your blog post, does it continually say "Loading" by where you'd expect the likes to appear? If so, there may be a connectivity issue that could be to blame.

    For example, on http://templeduguid.wordpress.com/2013/08/26/longlivesouthbank/ , I see four likes like this: http://cl.ly/image/181v1X1m3U1G

    Thanks for your patience as we figure this out!

  8. Thank you. Your link worked fine, and suddenly it dawned on me. I am looking at two blogs on a page and only when I open one on its own do I see the likes. I can only put it down to inexperience! Thanks for your efforts and I hope this helps some other befuddled newby!

  9. Glad we have it sorted out! Even working with WordPress in some form for seven or so years, I still find myself tripping over little things every so often myself. :-)
