My Latest Post Not In Tags Listing

  1. Please don't say I have too many tags. I have been over and over this. I deliberately count my tags now to make sure I haven't gone over twelve. My newest post has ten. Why isn't it being listed? I'm getting a bit fed up with the inconsistency with which my posts appear (or not) in the listings. I would like an explanation from someone in charge around here. And, if possible, an actual solution.

    Thank you.

  2. Never mind. Apparently I'm not allowed to use both "Texas" and "Texans" for tags on one post. WTF?!

  3. Hmmm, I wouldn't think that would be an issue. If I were you I would contact staff and ask about that.

  4. Can you tell me how to contact them? I don't see how to do that other than posting here.

    Thanks.

  5. Check this out. I used the following tags for another post:

    Posted in Education, Feminism, Relationships, Society | Edit | Comments Off
    Tags: abuse, aftermath, domestic abuse, domestic violence, evil, healing

    The post wasn't listed. I took out "abuse" and it immediately appeared in the listing. That's crap! They're all relevant search terms and do not necessarily refer to the same thing.

    I think something needs to be done about this kind of thing. It's a bit... stifling.

  6. I am having the same problem. I only had three tags and my post still did not show up even when searching by one of the tags that was also in the title. help????

  7. A post I wrote three days ago still is not listed. These are the tags. Please don't say it's because of "my sexy husband". I started that one, and all my other posts with that tag are there.

    Posted in Love, Relationships, Society | Edit | 3 Comments »
    Tags: compassion, marriage, my sexy husband, support

    Good grief, guys! What's the flippin' deal?

  8. @mikesgirl: you can contact support using the link in your dashboard, or by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page, which takes you to http://wordpress.com/contact-support/

    Support does not work on the weekends, though.

  9. Cool! I see it now. Thanks.

  10. Now I just made a post that is showing up in some of the tags and not in others. Here are the tags I used:

    Posted in Music, On A Positive Note, The Lighter Side | Edit | No Comments »
    Tags: childhood, happiness, memories, nostalgia, Statler Brothers

    I wonder if someone can tell me the right combination or the code to this? It's getting a bit ridiculous.

  11. No wait... they're there, they're just way out of order. They're listed under stuff that was posted 5 months ago. You guys need to fix this.

    My latest post ...
    http://routingbyrumor.wordpress.com/2008/07/20/of-blogs-and-bugs/
    isn't showing up under most of the tags I've used.

    I've also noticed that the results displayed for some tags I've been viewing today are not always listed in reverse chronological order (newest first).

    Actually, I've been having problems with my posts not showing up under the tags I've assigned to them for the past few weeks. I'll start playing with the tags, deleting one, adding another, etc., and things will suddenly get indexed correctly. Wierd.

  13. This happens A LOT. I use Categories, not tags.

    The categories stop listing posts for no apparent reason.

    If they have some secret limits or rules on categories, why don't they tell us what they are?

  14. I just made a post about it:

    http://lottierambleson.wordpress.com/2008/07/21/tags-gone-wild/

    I'm sending a link to our lovely hosts. :)

  15. In one of the other (several) threads on the subject tellyworth said there was a problem with the matrix and they were fixing it.

  16. mikesgirl, I see your post right at the top of the Grievance tag: http://wordpress.com/tag/grievance/ and at appropriate places elsewhere. Likewise for others above.

  17. Some of them appeared after I fiddled with the tags. Why can't I use "abuse" in conjunction with "domestic abuse" and "domestic violence" or "Texans" and "Texas" on the same post?

    As to the rest, they were still not there this morning when I made my post about it. Why does it take several days for some posts to be listed while others appear right away?

    Also, I'm wondering if anyone in charge has read my post? I have a "final grievance" toward the bottom of it. I sent a link to it via the contact/complaint form.

    By the way, like I say at the end of my post, I appreciate everything you guys do here. I love WordPress! This particular bug (if that's what it is) has just been driving me crazy for several days. And I know I'm not the only one experiencing the problem.

    Thanks,
    Lottie

  18. In one of the other (several) threads on the subject tellyworth said there was a problem with the matrix and they were fixing it.

    Sorry. I don't have time or the motivation to dig through all the shit gets posted on these forums, and the titles don't always accurately describe what the problem is anyway. When I have a question, I ask it. Straight up. No screwing around.

  19. I don't care about your state of mind or communication style; I was just giving you the information that staff knew there was a problem and were looking into it. I'll save myself the time in future.

  20. I read your comment as chastising me for asking a question that had already been asked ("several" times) and answered.

    My apologies for misreading it.

  21. Apparently there has been some confusion about my comment stating that I don't have the time or motivation to dig through everything on these forums. It seems that only the volunteers are allowed to be brief and to the point and that the rest of us should grovel to prove ourselves worthy of their attention. So for the sake of those who seem to think that most of us can't think for ourselves or do our own research, I would like to clarify exactly what I meant when I made that comment:

    When I said I couldn't be bothered to search the forums, I only meant that I can't read through every damn thread that may or may not be discussing the problem I'm having. The subject headings are not always reliable and don't always indicate exactly what's being discussed, and I don't have time to read through every thread that hints toward the subject I'm having problems with. That's what I meant by not pouring through everything on here. Not that I don't make a reasonable effort to see if the problem is already being discussed.

    Now, if the some of the volunteers here are going to keep their shitty attitudes, they can expect the same from me in return. This is as much my forum as it is any other WordPress member's, and I'm not going to be quiet and accommodating while certain condescending jerks behave disrespectfully toward me or anyone else I happen to witness it happening to.

    Those of you who find people's questions so annoying might consider doing something else with your spare time. Just because you may be more savvy than some (and that's sometimes debatable) doesn't give you the right to make belittling comments or talk down to people.

    In the future, I will read here when I have a problem just to see if my problem is being discussed, just as I always have. If I don't find anything on the subject, I will contact support directly rather than opening a new topic. I doubt anyone here will even try to answer my questions after this anyway.

  22. Perhaps if you asked the question directly without all the emotional editorializing you would get a response more to your liking.

  23. Perhaps if you read the original comment or had an inkling of the history involved, you would see that I had. I always do. Getting fed up one day and finally saying so, does not constitute "emotional editorializing" of a question.

    Context...

  24. I have read all of your comments and questions in the forums from the beginning.

    As you had said in comments re: hand-holding it seems you only turn to the forums when you have a big head of steam up in frustration with things not working as they should. This translates into a sense of hostility in your writing. That is what I pick up on. And by the sound of it so do others. I would not think to deny the validity of your feelings. I experience the same myself upon occasion.

    It is not the fault of the volunteers, the software, your abilities or even staff or WordPress often. Sometimes it is outside factors ranging from user distraction to service suppliers at WordPress. Each situation has a unique mix of circumstances.

    We can argue about it all day and try to place blame or we can choose to rein that in and try to cooperate and solve the problem at hand.

    If you have a question I can help to answer I will be happy to try. If not I prefer to generally skip the verbal jousting and move on.

    Context...a very busy forum with tens of thousand of questions and answers.

    Are you absolutely sure about that?
    As you had said in comments re: hand-holding it seems you only turn to the forums when you have a big head of steam up in frustration with things not working as they should.
    Coming here as a last resort after researching a problem on my own, is not the same as having a "big head of steam" or even being angry. Do not put words in my mouth, or state as fact what you erroneously infer from my words.
    This translates into a sense of hostility in your writing. That is what I pick up on.
    You have the cause and effect reversed. The frustration you pick up on is a result of the attitude that frequents these forums.
    It is not the fault of the volunteers, the software, your abilities or even staff or WordPress often.
    I have never said or implied that the technical problems are their fault. But they are responsible for their own behavior. You were quick to point out that perhaps my approach is the reason I have received the responses I have, but you fail to recognize that this works both ways.
    Each situation has a unique mix of circumstances.
    Exactly! Which is precisely why I take issue with being talked down to by smug, arrogant know-it-alls, and being treated like I'm stupid or that I'm doin' it rong. If anyone has a problem with me finally saying so, too bad.

    I no longer expect to get any answers here. Ever. My comment which bumped this post today was prompted by a discussion in the Off Topic forum in which several of the volunteers make disparaging comments about people who come here for help. I responded, calling them on their condescending attitudes. I was then accused of being one of the people who doesn't think for herself or do her own research, and a fragment of one sentence I wrote (in this thread) was used to support the accusation (thats why I posted the new comment here). That was the last straw. So you can thank your buddies here for opening this can of worms. If they can't take it, they ought not dish it out.
    If you have a question I can help to answer I will be happy to try. If not I prefer to generally skip the verbal jousting and move on.
    Your choice. I find all discussion and debate can be useful if you're tuned in and give a shit. The only way we don't learn from it, is if you we refuse to or don't even try. But please don't claim to know the history involved when you clearly do not. And do not accuse me of saying things I haven't said or put words in my mouth and expect that I won't have a thing or twenty to say about it.

  26. Sorry... I forgot blockquotes don't work the same here as hey do on my blog. I'll repost for clarity:
