Show 'Likes' and gravatars on blog page

  1. I'm using Chateau theme. The 'like' button as well as any likes and gravatars are shown if you go 'into' a post via the comment button. Is it possible to show the like buttons and gravatars on the main page under the post? (Sorry for any wrong terminology and I hope this makes sense!)

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

  2. Likes http://en.support.wordpress.com/likes/ and their associated gravatars will only show up on individual Posts or Pages, not on the front page (with the exception of the P2 theme, where everything shows up on the front page).

  3. OK, thanks.

  4. I have a similar issue, I can't seem to get mine to show even on the individual posts/pages, and I can't see a 'like' button for readers to click... I checked that the Settings/Sharing box for this is ticked... any other ideas?

    Click the title of your latest post and scroll down. There you will see the like button and the sharing buttons on your blog just as I can see them below the posts and above the comments boxes.

    Unless you use the P2 theme which is a Twitter-like theme, the front pages of our blogs showcase content. We cannot chnage this. By clicking the post title or the comments link the posts on the front page open on their own page where all comments display. In a new blog one does not have many posts or comments. In an established blog if the comments did not collapse on the front page it would become a mile long in no time flat and page loading time is a page ranking factor. We have only seconds before visitors refuse to wait and click out.
