How do friends see my posts?
I sent my wordpress URL to a friend. He said that he couldn’t see my post and was required to login. He was unable to login. He said something about having to create an account, which he doesn’t want to do.
If I want to post something that to share with professional colleagues AND they have to create an account and login each time to see the information, then I’m not so sure that they will react in a positive manner.
Please advise, thank you.
The blog I need help with is jmcphd.wordpress.com.
Is this the blog you are asking about?
If so, I see it without putting in a password.
Thanks. Much appreciated. Maybe, my friend has a cookie/other problem with his computer.
I have a slightly similar problem , so I hope you don’t mind me jumping into this thread..
a reader left a message in my comments:
,,<<I am new at this blogging thing but I am interested in following you. With Bloggers there is a spot to do this but I can’t find it here.>>
This isn’t the first person to ask this, and I asked this in the forums last week but got no reply… problem is that I have no clue what exactly they are asking for… or if what they ask is possible…
… can anyone help please as i am too new to blogging to know. ( simple instructions would be much appreciated)
There is no Followers thingy here like there is at Blogspot. More sophisticated readers use RSS to subscribe to a blog, and since you’re using the Meta Widget, the RSS link is right in your sidebar. People can subscribe via that.
Thanks for the kind reply raincoaster,
I have not the first clue what a “meta widget” or an “RSS” is but
I think I will just post your reply as the answer to my readers enquiries…
um, on second thoughts, might you have a “an explaination of tech terms for dummies”
terminology to translate your answer answer please please please?
Believe me, i’m verrrry stupid, and I’m scared to death that some one might ask ME to explain your answer…
@kiwidutch, just put the RSS link widget in your sidebar: http://support.wordpress.com/widgets/rss-links-widget/ .
Thanks thesacredpath !
I appreciate the help :)
kind regards… kiwidutch
So… thesacredpath… if people click on the little orange icon thingy that looks like soundwaves then they can subscribe ? I hope i’ve installed it correctly ?
Thanks! regards.. kiwidutch :)
It says you have a error with your feed
An error has occurred; the feed is probably down. Try again later.
Your feed URL is –> http://kiwidutch.wordpress.com/feed You will need to put this URL in the RSS widget.
I was just coming here to ask about this error message.. cheers for the info on how to fix it , I will try and fix it right now :)
Do I have to ask someone on another computer to check if I did it correctly and that it works?
kind regards… Kiwidutch
Sorry for jumping into this feed but I followed the above directions for my blog and when I inserted the RSS widget I lost all the information I have been working on for months. Gone! Can someone tell me why? J
when i open the widget RSS, I see where to put in the link you gave me… it also says
How many items would you like to display?
Display item content?
Display item author if available?
Display item date?
.. no clue what that means if I check those boxes ? Where would that info be displayed ? .. in to the subscribers email ( i’m wild guessing?)
once again thanks for the help… you Helpers are very patient with Slow Learners like myself LOL.
kind regards… kiwidutch :)
I’m sorry, I didn’t lose the info it’s just not showing on my blog anymore. So, I know I get it back but don’ know how.
Sorry I don’t know the answer to your dilemma, but know that the helpful others will jump in who can.
I do know that if you can provide them with a link to your blog then they can see what’s happening/what’s not etc…and you’ll get help much faster…
I hope that you get all your lost info back pronto !
kind regards.. kiwidutch :)
Phew, at least “all hidden” is better than “all lost” as a starting point… Good luck !
Thanks, kiwidutch, my link is http://meseemarvel.wordpress.com/
I tell you I’ve been struggling for months with WordPress. Been thinking about hiring someone at Stetson University to help me. Frustrated all the time.
PS The URL you just pasted is the one you must put in your Profile too (so that your nick will link to your blog).
Thanks, I pasted my URL for the third time. hope it works. Thanks for your info but I still can’t understand how to get my info back.
