Reblogging

  1. I accidentally reblogged to the wrong blog (toomanysusans), so I deleted the post... but now I can't reblog to learningrenaissance, as the icon is orange. Is it not possible to reblog to more than one journal?

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

  2. You can only reblog any post once. http://en.support.wordpress.com/reblogs/

  3. This doesn't help me much. I accidentally reblogged to the wrong place, and have now deleted that link. I am now locked out of any further action.

    I am looking to be managing several blogs for other people, and finding content for them. If I identify I good post, you are saying I can only share that one time with proper reference back to the originator? That's not good.

    FYI, I cannot see anything in the linked section that states just one reblog, or explains why this should be so.

  4. I can't help you and I don't reblog much at all. I prefer to create posts and backlink to relevant post in other blogs. I'll tag this thread for Staff assistance. Another Volunteer may answer prior to Staff but I tagged the thread so it will not fall through the cracks and escape attention. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

  5. It's simple. Do this manually.

    Write an intro with a few remarks. Add a quote from the blog you want to reblog. Add a link. Add more concluding remarks. That's WAY better than an automated reblog anyway.

  6. Yes. Obviously I can just post a link. That *is* simple. But the reblog ensure full and proper attribution, and notification to the source. That's what I want to do.

  7. You didn't read what I wrote. You quote them. You also link to them, in a way that attributes. Look at my blog for several thousand examples. A proper manual post of this nature gives MORE attention to the source, and drives significantly higher readership to both their blog and yours, than a robotic reblog. I have tested it.

  8. I often use quotes for other sites. But this issue is specific to WordPress though.

    I would *prefer* to reblog. My question is why I can only do this once... and more annoyingly, if I make an error in the first place, why I cannot reblog to a corrected location.

  9. You can only reblog once because spammers abused the reblogging function as soon as it was enabled.

  10. I don't know if there is an ability to do multiple reblogs of the same post as no mention is made of it in the support doc. Your experience indicates that may not be possible. As does this entry here http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/help-repost-a-deleted-reblog?replies=12#post-812911

    Have you tried using "Press This" instead to determine whether or not it will work for you? http://en.support.wordpress.com/press-this/

  11. Yes, I've used Press This in the interim... (this is my usual method of posting links).

    But I was wanting to be consistent. I'm wondering how long it will take for WP to work out I have deleted the original erroneous reblog... if at all. It surely shouldn't be too hard to validate a genuine WP blogger wanting to propagate other WP content...

  12. Yep. No change this morning, unfortunately. Its still showing as reblogged.

  13. Hi there,

    Thanks for reporting this issue! Our developers know about this reblogging issue, but we don't have a fix for it at this point.

    As a workaround, I recommend using Press This or manually sharing the post with attribution. You can also try creating a new WordPress.com account to reblog posts for each of the blogs you manage. (Each account will be able to reblog a post once.)

  14. I need to be able to reblog some of my posts more than once, but WP seems to allow only one reblog - any suggestions?

    Hi @pflenzi

    It is only possible to reblog any item once, including your own posts.

    Since you are just reblogging your own content (so there are no legal issues around ownership) why not just duplicate your content in a new post, rather than using the reblog feature? In your situation there really is no advantage in reblogging.
