Like Button Not Appearing
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.
Great! :-) It’s well worth a little short-term inconvenience when it’s this kind of “backend fiddling”!
Sorry for the hiccup there. Thanks to your quick responses everything should be running smoothly again. I’m subscribed to this topic, so I’ll keep an eye on things for the next little bit.
Glad to hear that this is being looked into. Thanks WordPress staff for working on this issue!
The issue seems resolved, at least for me. Thanks for fixing it so quickly!
My Facebook Like button is still not appearing for my posts!
my fb like button is not showing with chrome browser but it is showing with IE9…
This particular issue was regarding the WordPress.com Like button.
We are aware of a separate issue with the Facebook Like button and are working on a fix.
The issue has been resolved. Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
As of a few minutes ago, my “like” buttons are still missing. This apparently hasn’t been fixed for all of us yet. Thanks for working on the problem – hope you’ll continue until everyone has their “like” button back!
I can now turn on all my like buttons but I dont seem to be able to turn them off on the front page only…we would prefer to show the like buttons as previously..not on the front page but on the individual posts.
I’m not sure if we can revert to not displaying the link button and the social network sharing buttons on the front page or not. I’m flagging this thread so we can get a definitive answer form Staff.
Is it possible revert to not displaying the like button and the social network sharing buttons on the front page or not?
Sure, you can control that via Settings -> Sharing.
No worries, you’re welcome!
Im afraid that doesnt quite work for me :( …
if I go to settings/sharing and click “turned on per post” it will hide all likes everywhere….then editing a post and clicking “show likes on this post” it will show them both on the post and on the front page for that post..
vice versa, if i turn it on “for all posts”, it displays them all but then turning them off in the post editing, it will turn them off completely for that post.
so essentially either showing on both homepage and post or nothing at all per post.
On that same Sharing pages just above the section you describe see this:
Show buttons on
___Front Page, Archive Pages, and Search Results
ah..but this now hides the sharing buttons too..its only the likes we dont want on the front page but on the posts…
Oh dear, that’s a new problem. We’re looking into it.
