Only a portion of "likes" appearing in posts.

  1. Hi. Why are only a small portion of the likes on my blog posts showing up? There is a slider appearing now to the right of the "likes" but it does not do anything. This just started today.

    Thanks,
    Bill

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

  2. See here: http://thenorthedge.wordpress.com/2013/02/17/rose/
    See this link "33 bloggers" and the rest will appear.

    This is a brilliant change made by Staff. I ♥ it.

  3. See this link "33 bloggers" and click it and the rest will appear.

  4. Thanks very much! I don't know why I could not figure that out on my own!

  5. Sometimes it's the things right before our eyes that are easily overlooked. :)

  6. Another un-desired change for me. There is this "You and 30 other bloggers like this" at the bottom, but it is absolutely NOT apparent that this is even a link.

    Is there an option now that we can change if we want to view them all? Without clicking anything?

  7. I do not agree that this is "a brilliant change made by Staff". At least give us the option to revert back to the way it was before.

    Most of my posts get maybe 10-30 likes. I want to see them all.

  8. I agee, I do not like this change at all. I want all of my likes to appear. WordPress support touts all of the likes as a wonderful thing: "Over time and as the post grows in popularity, this can change into an outpouring of appreciation and a gallery of Gravatars showing the world that the post is completely amazing." http://en.support.wordpress.com/likes/
    I want my gallery to show. I don't want someone to have to click a link to see it - nor do I want to click it. I'd like the option to put it back the way it was.

  9. I ♥ love ♥ this change.

    Gravatars aren't even linked to blogs. They drive traffic to the gravatar profile pages and many bloggers don't even enter their blog links on those profile pages at all.

    Likes and shares are misleading when you are talking about page view stats. Your followers and anyone with a WordPress.com blog who is logged into WordPress.com can "like" and "share" your posts in several locations such as the Reader without ever clicking into your blog and creating a page view stat. See here for what I do to compel readers to read posts on my site > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/07/09/wordpress-followers-likes-and-stats

    I am happy the big blocks of like clicks that are not representative of actual page view stats are now nicely tucked away, rather than increasing page loading time on my blogs.

    Thank you, Staff.

  10. Please reconsider!
    I agree that it's not brilliant. And this is not the only change...
    Now I can't use hovercards and have a quick look and info about a blogger's profile. I have to click on it. Plus I noticed that I can't see the number of likes on my dashboard in "All posts" menu too. Before you could have a quick overview of likes there, which was very practical...
    So many clicks... so little time :(

    I also think the change is for the worse. But there is also a problem with the implementation. Typically, the link says "x bloggers like this". But if you click, in the window that opens it says "y bloggers like this", where y is significantly smaller than x. And then, it does not show all the gravatars---it appears to be limited to about 90. Check out these, problems, for example, on WordPress's own The Daily Post...

    Also, in many themes the single row of gravatars that is displayed on the post itself obscures the "like" button...

  13. One last comment... and I quote... "Don't like it... Don't like it... Don't like it... "

    Give us options... to keep this new way, or use the former way.
