categories/tags/comments at bottom of each blog

    The line that shows categories/tags/leave a comment is at the bottom of my first blog on my front page, but not my second blog. I have done everything the same and settings have not changed. Anyone know why this is? I am using the Matala Theme. Comments and likes can be seen if I click on the second blog but still the categories and tags don't show.

    The blog I need help with is lookingforthesweetspot.com.

  2. Hello there,
    Just to confirm -- are both blog using the same theme or not? I'm asking because where these are displayed is dependent upon where the web designer chose to place them on each individual theme. Please post an active link starting with http:// to your second blog so we can examine it.

    The issue is on my blog using matala theme which I just started. In the first post, the categories/tags/leave a comment is at the bottom of the post - after the share items. In the second post it is not there. If I click on the link to just that post, the comment box and like button are there, but the categories and tags are still missing. I have everything set the same for both posts, etc. One thought I had was that I currently have my posts set for 20 lines. Could that last line with categories/tags/leave a comment get cut off if that was not enough lines for that particular post? Here is the direct link to the second post.

    And here is the link to the front page so you can compare the first two posts.

    Your top post appears to be published as a "photo" post type whereas the second is published as a "standard" post type. Edit the top post and change it back to a standard post type and I think the metadata will then appear.

    ok - thank you. That did it, although I wish under a photo post I could have the same option. If you have time could you let me know with the Matala theme - which I love - is there any way to have a "like" button on the front page at the end of each post as well? Or with that theme can you only get to the like button by clicking on "leave a comment"?

    Thank you again. I have been very happy with the ease of using wordpress and all the support information!

  7. is there any way to have a "like" button on the front page at the end of each post as well?

    See here please > Make sure to select “Posts and index pages” for “Show sharing buttons on” setting. http://en.support.wordpress.com/sharing/

    Unless we use the P2 theme which is a Twitter-like theme, the front pages of our blogs showcase content and comments are collapsed on that page. The way the comments function is coded into the core of WordPress. By clicking the post title or the comments link the posts on the front page open on their own page where all comments display.

    In a new blog one does not have many posts or comments. In an established blog if the comments did not collapse on the front page it would become a mile long in no time flat and page loading time is a page ranking factor. We have only seconds before visitors refuse to wait and click out.
