    Hello wordpress forum group!

    I’m new to wordpress and I absolutely love it. I find it relatively easy to navigate, post, attach images, and edit using this site. I’ve already created a couple blogs within the past week, one for a final assignment for a Master’s level course I am taking, and one to post pictures of student projects in my classroom.

    mikesnarrativeinquiry.wordpress.com and
    mrlouie.wordpress.com

    A quick question, and I’m sure it is a very simple answer.

    I have the number “4” in an orange square in the top right corner of my screen after I log in. What does this refer to? My guess is either people who have posted “likes” on my posts, or the number of followers my blog has?

    Thanks

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

    It’s a notifications link.

    Thank you thank you!

    Is there something in the settings that prevents the number from expanding when I click on it or hover over it, like it shows on that linked page that you sent?

    Thanks

    I believe the maximum displayed is 9 notifications and there is no way for us bloggers to expand the display.

    Oh ok. My issue is that none of the notifications expand. All I get is the number in the toolbar, and that is it.

    Would you like to take your issue to Staff? Here’s the link http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ After you use the searchbox, under the search results, at the bottom of the page there will be a section that says “Have you found the answer to your question?” You can choose either “Yes I found the answer to my question.” or “No I didn’t find the answer to my question and I would like to contact support for help.” The no option will reveal the contact form.

    The staff must have been reading this forum post. I just clicked on the number and the notifications popped up. Problem resolved, thanks so much for your help!
