    For some reason it seems that people who visit our blog, 200% Meets, can’t like our posts anymore.

    Previously, this could be done in the grey bar on top of screen next to the wordpress ‘W’ where also an icon of the stats is listed. One could also like a post below the post by pressing the like button. Both ‘like’ opportunities seem to be missing. Does anyone know if WordPress changed the like option or is it a template related issue? Can anyone advise us on this? Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is 200percentmag.com.

    The like button on the Admin bar was removed some time ago for all of us. I’m using Firefox 15.0.1 and I can click the post titles and clearly see the like button below your posts as expected. http://en.support.wordpress.com/likes/#likes-and-your-site

    Note that one can’t click a WordPress.com like button unless they have a WordPress.com account and are logged in. Also note that likes and shares numbers are misleading when you consider page view stats. Your followers and anyone with a WordPress.com blog who is logged into WordPress.com can “like” and “share” your posts in several locations such as the Reader without ever clicking into your blog and creating a page view stat. Those who have username accounts only but no blog can become followers and click the “like” and/or “share” buttons. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/07/09/wordpress-followers-likes-and-stats/

    Thank you Timethief for taking the time to answer our question. Appreciate it.

    Are you saying that actually more visitors are reading our posts that then stats register? And the stats are not registering when our subscribers our reading our posts because they read them in the location Reader?

    Thanks!

    Yes, that is what she’s saying.

    Mmm, bit dispappointing actually, as we were hoping to raise the stats by getting followers so you create a base of people who are interested to read your posts and it will automatically raise your stats. It appears that is not the case :-(
