    I moved my blog by registering another one and transferring my content and the yellow like button under my first post disappeared. Could someone please tell me where it went and how to get it back?

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

    Yep, that's it exactly.

  3. Yay! Well then you have a reloution to your problem. You may also want to set up sharing options for your readers to click at the bottom of your posts as well. See here if you do. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/sharing/

    No, sorry, the problem's still there. I have made sure that show a like button is checked but the like button still isn't visible.

  5. I'm sorry I did not understand that right off. Contact Staff for help please as Volunteers answering questions do not have nabckend access to blogs -- only Staff do. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

  6. @themoviewanderer: Are you referring to this blog and its sole entry?

    The "Like" button is there, alright. However, it is normal that you wouldn't see it on the home page. "Like" buttons only show up when you view the post individually.

    Does that answer your question? If not, ask staff like timethief suggested. :-)

    I'll bet that your hunch is right. Good catch! :)

    Nope, that's my original blog. I transferred the contents of that blog to another one and the like button disappeared. I'll ask the staff. Thanks.

  9. Did you "transfer" the content into a wordpress.ORG install? If do then the like button is only availabel "in-house" for wordpress.COM users.

    Nope, transferred it into another wordpress.com

  11. Well we can't help you without the exact URL of the blog you're talking about, starting with http.

    moviewanderer.wordpress.com

  13. The way you have the settings on that blog, the Like and Share buttons only appear on individual blog posts. You have to change that setting so that they show on Index pages too.

  14. So here's the thing. We 3 volunteers can all see the "ike" button exactly where it ought to appear. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/like-button-missing?replies=13#post-545894

    If you cannot see it on the sepearate post page (not the front page) then you likely have a browser issue. Log out of wordpress.com, clear your browser cache & cookies and log in again please.

    @raincoaster nope, that didn't work. tried changing the setting to posts, pages, and index pages, still nothing.

    @timethief are you looking at themoviewander.wordpress.com or moviewanderer.wordpress.com

    sorry, typo, first one should have said themoviewanderer.wordpress.com

  17. You mean this is the blog we should be looking at? http://themoviewanderer.wordpress.com

  18. themoviewanderer

    no, i just meant i mistyped that. moviewanderer is the one you should be looking at.

  19. I see your Like button at both http://moviewanderer.wordpress.com/2011/01/01/hi/ and http://moviewanderer.wordpress.com/2011/01/01/superhero-news-1111/

    Have you tried clearing your browser's cache?

  20. themoviewanderer

    ah, me too. can see them on the individual posts but not on the index page. don't know how to clear my cache, believe it or not.

  21. @themoviewanderer Here is the instructions for clearing your browser cache

  22. Unfortunately, the Like button cannot be displayed on index pages.

    We apologize for the inconvenience.
