How can I let people 'like' an article on my homepage?

  1. http://jungleintherumble.wordpress.com/

    On my home page, you can't 'like' something unless you click on the article. How can I format my homepage so you can 'like' an article?

    Thanks for your help!

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

  2. Indeed I'm sure you want tpeople to actually read the atricle and determine its value to them before they click a like button, right? Otherwise clicking it would be fraud. See here please:

    Troubleshooting
    If you are having trouble showing the sharing buttons on your blog, please check the following:
    I can’t see the buttons on the front page.
    Make sure to select “Front Page, Archive Pages, and Search Results” for “Show buttons on” setting. http://en.support.wordpress.com/sharing/#troubleshooting

  3. Of course, but if you go to my homepage, and read the article, you can't like it or be aware that you can like it unless you click on the article....you can still read the full article on the homepage though.

  4. Unless you 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 and you cannot change this. 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.

    If you want to you can place a text widget at the top of your sidebar and include a brief message to let you readers know they need to click either the title or comment link.
