    Hi again,

    Using a feature like http://getcloudapp.com/ or http://imgur.com/ , you can upload a screenshot (or pasted image) of this page. I would need to see exactly what you see, so the copy/pasted text isn’t helpful enough, I’m afraid.

    Cheers!

    I downloaded the cloud app. and got the said WordPress Management Page onto the photoshop editor but I cannot find any way to copy it onto this box! Any suggestions?
    (ps. is this is an open blog? If so, please remove my e-mail details that you put one of your 13 Dec replies to me. )

    I’ve just noticed that there have been 8 comments on today’s Make Wealth History post. I have not received any of them into my e-mail!!!
    God knows what’s going on, but I’ve not changed a single setting. I’ve just looked at my settings page (on the said management page!) and there is not even a place for me to check or uncheck for receiving comments. So now I get in my e-mails two of the same posts from Make Wealth History and NO comments. Are you able to do anything? Surely, my WordPress management page is not different from others?

    Hi there,

    When I log in as you, and go to the Blogs I Like page, I do indeed see the Make Wealth History blog, with the notifications set to instantly. It shows there that you began following 4 days ago. Did you unfollow then re-follow the blog? that may be why you are seeing different strings. Additionally, I only see one post under “Posts I Like” that you are following. Unless you follow the post AND elect to receive all comments on that post via email, you won’t see them. I also see under the Blogs I Follow / edit page, that you are not signed up to receive all comments via email (which is the other way you could receive those). To see this option, you go to your Reader, click “Blogs I follow” (selected by default), then click on the grey “edit list” link to the left of it. There you can select to receive comments.

    Hi zandyring and thanks for that. No, I have never changed a single thing. The issues began out of the blue two weeks ago.

    I have now logged in to WordPress from Google (instead of the said WordPress management page linked to the MWH email post), and found the page you spoke of with the EDIT option and I have checked the box to receive comments (which until recently, I always did!). So, hopefully, I’ll receive them all now from all posts

    But, assuming I do, I still get two emails of each MWH post. I can click on the link of the bottom of these to the WordPress management page. One of the posts brings up the WordPress management page stating that I followed on December 7, 2011 and the other says November 30 2012. There are no edit options. The original one Dec 7, 2011 contained all my own previous 48 comments until a few days ago when it suddenly only showed the latest one (now two). So, still the question is how to stop the two emails of each MWH posts? And then, how to recover the lost previous 48 comments from the day I followed on Dec7, 2011? One of the three recent problems may be resolved (yet to be seen), but two outstanding.
    I don’t understand how it’s not all seen and controlled by you (WordPress). Can you do anything about the issues? (It is not something to do with the sudden change two weeks ago when I submitted a comment to MWH, and for the first time ever, I was not asked by WordPress to first enter my username and password to have it submitted?)

    Hi there,

    I’ve asked the internal team to help me look into this for you. I’ll let you know what we uncover!

    Cheers!

    Thank you, that’s great because (since checking the follow comments box), I’m now receiving many comments to my e-mail from 2010 and 2011 from BEFORE I’d even heard of Make Wealth History!

    Hi – we’ve completely removed your subscriptions to “Make Wealth History”.
    Can you try subscribing to that blog again, and seeing if you get more emails than necessary again?

    Thanks!

    Thank you and Happy New Year.

    Before I do anything, I’d better wait first, to see what happens when Jeremy does his next post any day now. If I need to re-subscribe I will. If I still get any of the 3 recently acquired problems, I’ll let you know asap.

    Hope my username and password is kept live – it worked this time so fingers crossed!

    Hi there dichasium,

    I was wondering if you’ve had any success getting the normal number of email updates?

    Cheers!

    Thank you for checking back. Your colleague cancelled my subscription and suggested i did the same and the re-subcribed. I did not have to as him doing it your end was enough. Unfortunately, since it first went wrong I also began being asked to confirm my subscription and again to confirm to ‘Follow comments’ every time I comment – this never used to happen. So, now I do not recieive any comments unless I have commented myself and then confirmed my wish to ‘Follow’ . This is a nuisance. I’m sure I received ANYONES comments before, whether I’d commented or not, and I certainly didn’t have to keep confirming to ‘Follow comments’! What a palaver!

    To top it, I got another request to subscribe, mistook it for the confirm ‘Follow comments’, clicked it and today – back to double post!!! I’ve clicked unfollow on the latest subscription, so fingers crossed, on this one!! But wish I didn’t have to keep finding the original posts to see if there are any comments if I’ve not commented, as they get lost and I can’t remember which ones are which. I’m missing all the interesting comments when I’ve not made one myself! Any ideas?
    Many thanks. (I also never got back the history of 48 old comments which I occasionally wanted to refer to!)

    Hi there,

    Once you’re logged in, visit here: http://wordpress.com/#!/read/edit/

    It is found by going to your WordPress.com dashboard, then going to Blogs I Follow and clicking “Edit List” – there you can check the box to receive comments via email for any blogs you follow.

    Hope that helps!
