    I have “likes” enabled – how else would people be able to choose it? I have just started my wp blog and have rec’d 2 emails about likes, but I cannot see them at the bottom of the posts.

    The blog I need help with is blog.caroldunniganphotography.com.

    There is a Like button appearing on our top navigation bar again from time to time. We don’t get any announcements re: any technical features Staff are “testing”. It can be used by logged in WordPress.com bloggers who are visiting other WordPress.com blogs.

    Please follow this guide to enable likes on your posts http://en.support.wordpress.com/likes/
    Note that the like button will appear only when the post title or coments link are clicked and thw whole post is displayed on its own page.

    Hi Timethief. I read the link, clicked on the title to my post titles, and still don’t see the likes. I also now have a follower, but I don’t see their profile pic. Shouldn’t I be seeing the pictures of the people who have liked my post and pictures of my followers?

    Oooh – also I have the option to have 2 side-bars. I’d rather just have one so that my content can stretch more, but the left column seems to be fixed and not scrollable. Is there anyway around that?

    As folloing this guide to enable likes on your posts http://en.support.wordpress.com/likes/ failed for you I have flagged this thread fo Staff attention.

    Gravatars for those who click “like” buttons are displayed just above the comment box and below the like button which is not appearing on your posts. You enable gravatar display on this page > Settings > Discussion scroll down to “avatars”

    WordPress.com followers can be blog post follower and/or comment followers. There is no Facebook style box that they diaply in so fon’t expect to find one. Go to your site stats page and click Totals, Followers & Shares
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/#totals-followers-shares
    Click the Blog link under the number and the Site Stats ยป My Followers page will open. Click the Email Followers link.

    The “Show buttons on” options in Settings -> Sharing also applies to the WordPress.com Likes, so you’ll need to check the appropriate option(s) so Likes will appear at the bottom of the posts.

    For example, if you want Likes to appear while viewing your blog front page, check “Front Page, Archive Pages, and Search Results” in Settings -> Sharing, then click Save Changes.

    No there isn’t. See the Ari theme description http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/ari/ and the live demo site http://aridemo.wordpress.com/

    Thank you both. I have looked at all links and Bryan – I saw my error. I thought the “sharing” page was just meant if I wanted people to be able to share my work (i.e. facebook). I now see my error and have corrected it and can see my likes. I “assumed” that followers photos would show like it does on blogspot. I guess not. Thank you both for your help. I may change my template so that I can have one sidebar that will scroll.
