No Likes appearing

  1. Hi there

    Having same issue as OP
    Had about 8/9 emails telling me about likes from different bloggers
    but ziddlyzilch appearing on the post or in stats.

    Sorry to be a bore with another burden

  2. Howdy folks,

    Can you do a couple things for me? First off, the next time you see the problem, can you follow the instructions here to generate a javascript error report:

    Also, can you let me know what operating system and browser type/version you are using?


  3. Hey Josh, I did as you requested, so am I supposed to put the screen shot in the text box of this forum?

  4. Hi again,
    Happily for me my likes just appeared a few hours later like it looks like for other peeps.

    Happy to do as instructed if it happens again though.

    Thanks for the advice

  5. Well, I tried putting the screen shot in this box, but it wouldn't work. Today I posted and have received eleven 'like' notifications in my email, but not a one has showed up.
    Here is the link to the post.

  6. So, I've been trying to figure out how to do as you asked to help fix the 'like' problem. I'm not so computer savvy. I put a screen shot in my media file of (what I think is) the java script error, but it's way too small to see. Maybe you'll be able to figure out a way to see it. If it doesn't work and you could explain further on how to do this, I will try my best to help.

  7. Oh, sorry, the name of the screen shot file in my media library is "scsh for no likes."

  8. When the likes do appear, they show up after a slight delay and the screen says they're loading. After a refresh and the usual delay, they didn't appear the latest time, which is captured in the screenshots I took.

    I couldn't figure out how to include the screenshots here, so they're on my blog for the whole world to see. However, there is no Error tab at the bottom of the JavaScriptConsole window (as described in WordPress's Advanced Browser Troublshooting for Chrome).

    I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601 and Google Chrome Version 32.0.1700.72 m.

    The screenshots are here:

    The 3 Likes failed to appear on the previous post called "Housekeeping".

  9. I've updated the post above ("please ignore this post") with screenshots showing 3 likes for the earlier "Housekeeping" post at around 5 pm and no likes for the same post at around 8 pm.

  10. I am using Windows 7 ultimate with browser Chrome and a few days disappear and reappear many ,, like,, and eventually find a strong lowering of the views ... more than 50% ... anomaly from the wordpress server?
    what should I do?
    thank you with my heart and I wish you good things
    my blog is

  11. Hi! I'm having the same issue with likes being pushed through on my phone and in notifications on my computer, but then not showing on the actual post. Screenshot is here:
    I'm on a MacBook Pro using OS X 10.8.5, Safari 6.1
    Thanks in advance for your help!

  12. The likes seem to be working for the time being. Thank you for all your continued support.

  13. Thank you!

  14. Thank you all for the continued reports.

  15. Hi Josh - I ran the Javascript error report in Safari, but no errors were generated. I'm using a MacOS 10.9.1/Safari 7.0.1
    Thanks a lot for continuing to look into this!!

  16. I am having the same problem - I get e-mails about likes and follows but they either don`t show on the blog or show and disappear repeatedly.
    I am using Chrome and clearing the cache does not help.

  17. Just to keep you updated, the 'likes' are still not showing up on new posts. So far, they end up showing up about 24 hours later (approx).

  18. I've just noticed a discrepancy between likes received and those appearing on the post:

    I'll keep a beady eye on it.

  19. it's been a while since we have this trouble with the ,,Like,,
    how we can help solve it?
    not is the fault of our browser, I have the same browser, the server of worpress has problems, and ye, all the staff are silent, why?
    And it would be great to know that we can do
    if you will bring us to the attention that has trouble it would be honest
    thanks so much

  20. I am having the same issue. "Like" messages continue to send notification through my phone but only a few have shown up on my post. Any fixes yet?

  21. in my opinion, the staff of wordpress is in serious trouble, but has not courage to tell us, he may not have the ability to manage so many blogs, maybe will have to spend more to have a whole world in their hands ... however, worpress is stronger platform for bloggers, and not cheap ...
    we just waiting for more help from their and more understanding, is not it?

  22. I have the same problems than the previous blog, I keep getting e-mail notifications about likes on my blog, but they don't seem to appear on my posts until a long time afterwards. Is there a way I can make the likes appear?

    The blog I need help with is

  23. Re: Disappearing/Out of Synch Likes Data

    Rootjosh (Staff, 1/4/14): "Well, there's a reason for everything I guess!
    But there is no intentional reason for something like this. It's a glitch/bug that we're chasing. Its inconsistency makes it particularly hard to pin down."

    So, ten days later after attempting the JavaScript trouble shooting routine with negative results, the 'likes' issue continues. Could be worse I suppose, but worrisome.

    Mac OS X, 10.7.5, Safari

  24. I am convinced that it is not something intentional on the part of the great wordpress
    but it would be honest to tell us that it is not capable of cope a situation that lasts for a long time and it causes damage
    my blog has lost much the views, oscillations, the ,,like,, appear-disappear
    I updated everything, I cleaned everything, I did everything that here has suggested... nothing, the same
    ...maybe we should give up completely to the internet and to come back to write on the paper, or worse, on the walls of caves
    We are too dependent on the internet
    Well, patience

  25. Can I add my WordPress blog - to the list of blogs having problems with Likes disappearing? It's been happening for about the last two weeks.

    Sometimes after I receive a notification, the likes show and then disappear, mostly they don't come up at all. My poor ego is melting...

    I have saved some screen shots into my media library.

    Thank you for your help.

  26. Well, that shows my lack of technological knowhow... is the correct link. Thanks.

  27. Hi again

    The problem persists and it affects both of my blogs:

    I get the e-mail notifications but the likes on the lasts posts don`t show until the next day or so.

  28. sathyasaimemories

    Yes, the problem is huge. Every once in a while, when you think they have fixed it.. (their server end) - then the likes disappear again. They come and go. It is an on going problem. I first noticed the missing likes about two weeks ago.

    They take ages t load....

    Then you think of they are there.

    You look again. Likes missing again.

    Around 24 hours later, the likes are there again.

    One never knows..

  29. sathyasaimemories

    Here's my new blog, with the same problem...
