Like Button Not Appearing

  1. Does anyone know how to correct a problem with the "like" button not appearing under each post?...even though the box for "likes" is checked before the post is published?

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

  2. I'm having this problem too. My 'like' button and all the 'likes' a post had gotten just vanished. It's rather frustrating, since that's a handy feature for people who don't have to comment. Is anyone else having this problem?

  3. I'm having this problem too! The settings are definitely set correctly on my blog. Where has the button gone??

    Same here and all the other blogs I visit too, their Like buttons have vanished!

    And when you click "like," it refreshes the page instead of marking the post as "liked."

  6. My educated guess is that Staff are doing some backend fiddling to improve the like button feature. I'll flag this thread for a Staff response.

  7. Well..everyone else I've talked to today seems to be having the same problem.

  8. I suggest we foocus on doing other things while we wait patiently for Staff to rectify the problem. :)

  9. Sorry for the trouble!

    We're looking into this.

  10. FYI, the "backend fiddling" that we're doing will finally allow you to have WordPress.com Like buttons under each post on the front page, not just the single post pages.

  11. Just in case they aren't aware of the issue, I thought I'd add some information that I know. I only noticed it within the last hour.

    This blog has a "like" button at the top, but it refreshes the page: http://usyaka.wordpress.com/2012/04/23/a-weird-spherical-thing-is-in-the-car/

    Same with this one: http://newviewfromhere.wordpress.com/2012/04/23/bummed-out/?like=1&_wpnonce=d55f382bb5

    The same thing occurs on my own blog, so it doesn't seem to be a problem isolated to one particular theme. I am using Chrome, and I haven't tried another browser yet.

    I have no doubt things will be up and running soon, I just wanted to offer this information in case it helps to track things down.

  12. @macmanx That is awesome! Thanks for the update!

  13. Indeed and what I said was "fiddling to improve the like button feature". ;)

  14. The LIKE button isn't working. Just tried it on several blogs I read and Nada. Please advice as it is one of our best features! Thank you! :-)

    Thanks for the reports everyone. I'm slowly bringing pieces back online, and I'll report back here when everything is up.

  17. Timethief, I read Max's reply and my post should have read please update us... A diplomatic approach would have been nicer. Have a great day! :-)

  18. Thank you John James!

    Great! :-) It's well worth a little short-term inconvenience when it's this kind of "backend fiddling"!

    Hey everyone!

    Sorry for the hiccup there. Thanks to your quick responses everything should be running smoothly again. I'm subscribed to this topic, so I'll keep an eye on things for the next little bit.

  22. Glad to hear that this is being looked into. Thanks WordPress staff for working on this issue!

  23. The issue seems resolved, at least for me. Thanks for fixing it so quickly!

  24. My Facebook Like button is still not appearing for my posts!

    my fb like button is not showing with chrome browser but it is showing with IE9...

  26. This particular issue was regarding the WordPress.com Like button.

    We are aware of a separate issue with the Facebook Like button and are working on a fix.

  27. The issue has been resolved. Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.
    Sorry for the inconvenience.

  28. As of a few minutes ago, my "like" buttons are still missing. This apparently hasn't been fixed for all of us yet. Thanks for working on the problem - hope you'll continue until everyone has their "like" button back!
