    Last week I changed my blog address from jessicascakes to poppystreats. Ever since then, whenever i do a blog post, it wont ever show up on the reader, with all the other blogs.

    Not only that, if i search for a tag that I tagged in my post, it still won’t show up in the results. For example my latest post is tagged with paleo, but if i search the paleo tag my new post isnt showing.

    How can i fix this please! (Ive cleared my cache)

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

    You have 16 categories and tags on your latest post. That’s too many. Drop it below 15 and don’t ever use more than that.

    I only have 13 tags? But also that was a new post today, none of my previous ones have been showing up all week either ever since i changed blog address (and they all had under 10 tags)

    It is the COMBINATION of categories and tags that counts. No post should have more than 15.

    Ah right ok thanks changed that, but even so my previous posts (before today) arent showing up in my reader? So my followers arent able to see them unless they actually directly go to my page.
    None of those posts have more than 10 tags, and this problem only started once I changed blog address last week.

    Did you buy the redirect upgrade? Apparently followers aren’t transferred to the new URL without that.

    I can see your latest post on the Shepheard’s pie tag page easily. It’s right at the top.

    No, I’m still on the free .wordpress.com url, I just changed the blog name. I still have my followers so it isnt that, and also I’m following myself also and still none of my posts are coming up in my reader so Im not sure what it is?

    Yeah it seems to be working when searching tags now, but just not appearing in the reader for people following me?

    I’ve just scrolled down my entire reader for the past few weeks and none of my posts are showing up in it, whereas they would do before I changed my name

    You subscribed to the OLD URL. You have to subscribe to the new one, in order to get posts from the new URL, or buy the redirect upgrade if the instructions I read are correct.

    Things like this are one reason I never recommend changing your URL. It just isn’t worth the hassles after the fact.

    I am following the new URL though thats what I dont understand. And all my old followers are following the new blog, so when I look at ‘Site stats’ for both my new and old page, my new page has 33 and my old one has none. But still the posts for my new one wont show up in the reader.

    Yeh I didnt realise it would be a hassle, it looked like it would be a really simple thing when I just clicked the button :/

    Well, this thread is flagged for staff attention so just subscribe to notifications by email (use the tickbox under the Write Post box here) and wait for them to get back to you.

    Cool, thanks for your help

    This is exactly what happened to me. If changing my name means losing my followers, then why are all my followers still listed on MY reader? Every one of them I’m talked to said when they go to my site they have to click “unfollow” first before it will even let them follow.

    I just posted a test from my old page, and it instantly appeared in my feeder, but still none of my posts from my new name are. I’m not sure whats happening? :(

    Even though I manually unfollowed my old name, posts from it will appear in my feeder, whereas posts from my new name (Which i am following) dont!

    Just hang tight and wait for staff to get to this and sort it out. That’s good info, but when you post to the thread, you send it to the back of the line for staff help.

    @poppystreats I see your post about Banana Bread in the Reader, so everything appears to be okay:

    I also noticed that all of your followers appear to be on your new site at poppystreats.wordpress.com.

    @waxgnostalgic your followers also appear to be intact on your new blog.

    Please note that once someone has followed your blog, they will have to click “unfollow” before the “follow” option appears again, which is how it’s supposed to work.
