"Like" posts directly from email?

    Hello –

    I didn’t see this question, but is there a way for my email subscribers to “Like” my posts directly from the emailed copy without having to go to that post’s page?


    The blog I need help with is rghernandezpen.com.


    Hmmm…I didn’t see the answer there. I did see how I can show the Like button on my posts, and how I can see everything I’ve Liked, but didn’t see how my readers can Like my posts in their emailed version. Did I miss it?



    Your followers can “like” your posts in several locations 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” button.

    A follower can click the “like” button when viewing your posts in the Readomatic reader on the home page of WordPress.com
    A follower can click the “like” button when viewing your posts on the Topics pages.
    A follower can click the “like” button when viewing your posts when using an app.
    An email subscriber can click the “like” button in the email they receive of your new posts without visiting your blog.

    P.S. To compel readers to click into my blog to read the full post I have set my RSS Feed to “summary” on this page > Settings > Reading


    Thank you! I did see the “summary” setting and wondered exactly what that was. Now I know.

    I was under the impression that a Like option didn’t appear in emailed posts and was curious whether that’s something I control or not. I myself subscribe to another WP blog via email and never see a Like button, so I usually go ahead and click into the blog itself to do it. But the subscriber for my blog that I’m thinking of isn’t allowed to visit websites at work, although she is allowed to receive emails.

    Thank you again for your help!
