Why won't my blog publicize?

    The publicize feature is not working. I tried disconnecting/reconnecting. My post is not saved as a draft or future dated. The post published to my Facebook Page (Affiliated with an Organization), but won't publish to Google+, my personal FB account, Twitter, or LinkedIn. Why, when it used to work for all of them?

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

  2. I'm having the same problem. My blog didn't post as scheduled because the time zone was changed. I rescheduled and it still didn't post. I reconnected everything in publicize but nothing is appearing on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or Google+. My tags are missing and so are the sharing buttons that used to appear at the bottom of my blog posts.

  3. My sharing buttons are missing too and publicize doesn't seem to be working - can wordpress please fix this or I will move to another platform

    Thanks

  4. Hi everyone!

    Are you all posting from the WordPress.com post editor found here:

    https://wordpress.com/post/ ?

    If so, please try posting through your respective blog admin panels and see if Publicize works from there.

    @stephohanley & @sldawlatly:

    Can you tell me which blogs you're not seeing the Sharing buttons on? Thanks!

  5. I used the blog admin panel. I just figured out what was wrong with the tags, I had to type them in again and hit the plus button and then hit Update (the tags for my other posts now show up but they were missing on Friday and over the weekend) but I don't understand why the sharing buttons aren't displaying.

    I have never had so many problems with WordPress.com. I don't like the new interface.

    My blog may be found at stephanieohanley.wordpress.com

    Not sure how posts have been put on, but when I changed themes and then changed back share buttons have randomly appeared for some posts. I can't remember what I've done differently. Sorry can't be more help...

    Sharing icons http://en.support.wordpress.com/sharing/ and using The Publicize app http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/ are two different things.

    This is an issues with the Publicize apps thread.

    I see sharing buttons here http://samirdawlatly.wordpress.com/2014/07/21/test-post/
    I also see them on your first published post here http://samirdawlatly.wordpress.com/2010/03/23/how-do-you-take-yours/
    Click any post title link and scroll to the end of the post.

  8. Have tried a test post from phone and that works. Must have been the way I loaded up a couple of the posts add you suggest. Will have to see if I can work it out from laptop too.

    Still bit frustrating, but thanks

  9. P.S. Will you please link your WordPress.com blog to your WordPress.com username? See here for how to instructions http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2007/10/06/link-your-username-to-your-blog/

  10. @sldawlatly
    As I said above this thread is a Publicize issues thread. So will you please click this link http://en.forums.wordpress.com/?new=1 and create your own thread, if you have any more issues with sharing icons.

  11. Well do my best timethief, but life is short...;)

    I see sharing buttons here http://stephanieohanley.wordpress.com/2014/07/18/the-cats-of-devils-hill/
    I also see them on your first published post here
    http://stephanieohanley.wordpress.com/2011/09/27/ethics/
    Click any post title link and scroll to the end of the post.

  13. The whole point is that the sharing buttons appeared in some posts but not others. And publicise stopped working too. Hence posting across two threads. In process of fixing sharing buttons thanks to helpful advice elsewhere. Think publicise may have nervously fixed itself... odd, but true

  14. Hi again,
    I just found your other thread on this same sharing icons issue.

    re: Publicize
    Please note that reconnecting Publicize with Facebook and/or with Twitter, LinkedIn,etc. does not re-publicize missed posts, but it will work for future posts.

    If you run into trouble with it again Staff will help in this thread.

    I can see that your test post successfully publicized to your Facebook account:

    Although in Settings -> Sharing of your admin panel, I noticed that all your social media accounts are disconnected:

    https://samirdawlatly.wordpress.com/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=sharing

    I would connect these services again for Publicize to work properly.

    In that same post, I am able to see the sharing buttons below it:

    @stephohanley:

    Please reconnect your social media accounts here:

    https://stephanieohanley.wordpress.com/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=sharing

    And try publishing a new post to see if Publicize works. Please bear in mind that Publicize will only work for new posts and doesn't work on already published ones.

    In addition, I am also seeing sharing buttons below your posts after clicking on their titles:

    @rabbitsinmymind:

    Can you try reconnecting your social media accounts as well and publish a test post?

    https://rabbitsinmymind.wordpress.com/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=sharing

    Please let me know if you have any other concerns. Thanks!
