Like Button Not Appearing
Does anyone know how to correct a problem with the “like” button not appearing under each post?…even though the box for “likes” is checked before the post is published?
The blog I need help with is carolwelsh.wordpress.com.
I’m having this problem too. My ‘like’ button and all the ‘likes’ a post had gotten just vanished. It’s rather frustrating, since that’s a handy feature for people who don’t have to comment. Is anyone else having this problem?
Is this the guide you used?
I’m having this problem too! The settings are definitely set correctly on my blog. Where has the button gone??
Same here and all the other blogs I visit too, their Like buttons have vanished!
And when you click “like,” it refreshes the page instead of marking the post as “liked.”
My educated guess is that Staff are doing some backend fiddling to improve the like button feature. I’ll flag this thread for a Staff response.
Well..everyone else I’ve talked to today seems to be having the same problem.
I suggest we foocus on doing other things while we wait patiently for Staff to rectify the problem. :)
Sorry for the trouble!
We’re looking into this.
FYI, the “backend fiddling” that we’re doing will finally allow you to have WordPress.com Like buttons under each post on the front page, not just the single post pages.
Just in case they aren’t aware of the issue, I thought I’d add some information that I know. I only noticed it within the last hour.
This blog has a “like” button at the top, but it refreshes the page: http://usyaka.wordpress.com/2012/04/23/a-weird-spherical-thing-is-in-the-car/
The same thing occurs on my own blog, so it doesn’t seem to be a problem isolated to one particular theme. I am using Chrome, and I haven’t tried another browser yet.
I have no doubt things will be up and running soon, I just wanted to offer this information in case it helps to track things down.
Indeed and what I said was “fiddling to improve the like button feature”. ;)
The LIKE button isn’t working. Just tried it on several blogs I read and Nada. Please advice as it is one of our best features! Thank you! :-)
Please read threads before you postinto them. See what macmanx Staff said above here > https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/like-button-not-appearing?replies=15#post-870927
Thanks for the reports everyone. I’m slowly bringing pieces back online, and I’ll report back here when everything is up.
Timethief, I read Max’s reply and my post should have read please update us… A diplomatic approach would have been nicer. Have a great day! :-)
Thank you John James!
