    Thanks. From my read of the photography blogs I see on wordpress its the social aspects not the bandwidth - for bandwidth and great presentation you have dozens of options without a social component e.g. SmugMug.

  2. @kraftbj - thank you very much :) Maybe if people have a problem with too many buttons, just adding one for either pop-up or open in blog and having clicking on the title do the other job would be the answer? I would think having both would be less confusing, but then I was surprised by you saying too many buttons can put people off!

  3. @victor - Good point. Perhaps a non-photog should just be quiet sometimes :-)

    On the contrary its refreshing to have you in the forum!

  5. Hi kraftbj

    In the previous page you could find my comment when I asked why my post is not showing up in the reader and I have faced similar problems many times.

    Your answer -

    With that particular post, it is over 15. Both the categories and tags are combined and are counted as part of the 15 limit. When under 15, posts will show in the Reader both under the tags and categories assigned to the post, hence the combined limit

    I just wanted to know is this rule valid for users of specific countries only or is it universal.

  6. It is universal and has nothing to do with the country at all.

    All reasons for non-appearance of posts on Topics pages can be found here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/#missing-posts

    If you have assigned a combined total that exceeds 15 Categories/Tags to your posts, you need to edit and delete. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/ After removal of the excess categories and/or tags note it may take several days for your posts to begin displaying there.

    You are inadvertently spamdexing AKA tag spamming. And, you ought to be more concerned about your posts not appearing and being well ranked on Google and Bing SERPS (search results pages) than not appearing on the WordPress.com Topics pages because it's search engines that send a significant flow of traffic to blogs and they can choose to bury your content where the sun don't shine for tag spamming.

    The rule of thumb is to assign the least, not the most, combined number of only relevant categories and tags that accurately describe the post content.

    Note: Except for the first sentence above, that's a copy and paste answer I gave to you a month ago in this thread http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/post-not-showing-up-on-reader-3?replies=8#post-1533829

    Thanks but I think that's a very specific question i have asked and and I haven't asked for a help from my fellow bloggers. I just noticed a trend and feel like compiling few facts. Further, I would have preferred a post from non-anonymous poster, if not someone from wordpress.

  9. Hi there,
    I posted a correct answer above and you have posted to a peer support forum. You don't private support here from Staff and you don't get it without an upgrade. lol :D

    Ms. Thief,
    Curious about the upgrade noted in your message above?
    Thanks.

  11. @rakmilphotography
    To add some context here gaurab27 posted off topic into this thread.

    Those who have upgrades as I do can file private support tickets http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ However, that being said it's my experience that it's always a whole lot quicker to get an answer here in the peer support forums than it is to get email support which can take days.

  12. @timethief

    Sorry but you are a user like me and your answer doesn't stand ground as you don't know their internal policies or their functioning or the technology they have put in or do you actually have that info? Do you stand to answer for wordpress ?

    They have answered in this thread several times so it's not a big deal. Further I'm a paid subscriber and this is no special technical help that I have asked for. They may prefer not to answer this.

  13. @gaurab27
    Please feel free to wait for a Staff response.

    Who is the judge of this? who is the authority?

    I have asked a question about a problem in the reader.Period.

  15. @timethief

    @gaurab27
    Please feel free to wait for a Staff response.

    why I'm feeling that you know they would answer it or not.

  16. @gaurab27
    The person who starts a thread defines the topic in the thread for the thread. In this case the thread was created by shawn747 and was focused on changes made to the WordPress.COM Reader. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/reader-changed?replies=433#post-1502759

    The thread was not and is not focused on tag spamming AKA spamdexing as defined here http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/#missing-posts which is what you are asking about.

  17. @gaurab27
    I said:@gaurab27
    Please feel free to wait for a Staff response.

    why I'm feeling that you know they would answer it or not.

    What I posted amounted to a polite way of saying suit yourself.

  18. @Thief

    Sorry but I was also among the first few posters and in thread was made sticky to cover the whole sheet/range of changes with the reader and what are problems users are facing with the reader. Check it. Confirm it or maybe you already know.

    Further there has been all kind of suggestions and posts related to this as well. Check it. I'm not able to understand why are you so agitated with this.

  19. @guarab27 and @timethief -- Please kindly stop responding to each other or I'll temporary restrict your ability to post.

    timethief's answer that the rule is the same for all countries is 100% correct. Likewise, this is a peer-support forum that staff do contribute to.

    Any further responses from either of y'all in this exchange will merit temporary restrictions. I'd like to not have to close this thread as it has been helpful and productive overall.

    Thank you.

  20. @guarab27: Generally, this thread dealt with general issues of new appearance of the Reader. The issue of specific posts not showing in the Reader view is outside of the scope of this thread, in my opinion, and should be hashed out in a new thread.

    That said, since your question could be answered with a straightforward answer, I gave it to you within this thread, instead of asking you to open a new one. Saves time for everyone in that case, I think.

    Generally speaking, if your issue isn't exactly like the issue brought up by the original poster, it should be in a separate thread.

    Thank you both for your cooperation. Cheers.

    Thank you.

    I was polite and my answers did not violate any forum policy.

  22. @timethief: Understood. Just wanted to get some breathing room and stop the back-and-forth. :-) All good in the world again, as far as I'm concerned.

    Back to our regularly scheduled programming :-)

  23. @Kraftbj and @timethief - Please read the post and the comment by Gill Mcgrath, it proves the point that you are biased and discriminating against few people or people from certain country.

    http://processingthelife.com/2014/02/10/wordpress-blogging-tips-for-beginners/

    @timethief is so active always why I'm not getting a reply now?

  24. @gaurab27: I apologize, but I'm not quite tracking along with that comment thread.

    The tactic to have under 15, then increase to over 15 would allow folks to initially see the post, but it would stop displaying in the Reader once the number of tags has increased over 15. We do cache what is displayed in the Reader, so there may be a short time a post is still displayed in the original categories after the additional tags have been added.

    In either case, the system does not check country of the author of the post nor the country of the person who created the site when displaying content in the Reader.

    Thanks.

  25. Yes, I went through those posts and analyzed them and posted a reply on my comment thread. The comment from a fellow blogger was misleading.

    It was actually a way of getting around that 15 limit. Sometimes rude replies makes you feel otherwise. ;)

    Thanks.
