zandyring ~ Thanks so much for stopping by.
I've never subscribed to comments via email. Instead, I've depended on the notification tab to keep me up to date.
For example, I left a comment this morning on Portraits of Wildflowers. Just now, it's last on the page. As you can see, the blog owner responded to my comment.
Until three or four days ago, Steve's comment would have appeared in my notifications tab, and I could respond or not, as I chose. Now, I'm not getting notice of his comments.
Another blog where I've had the problem is here.
There are two problems. The first is that my notifications tab is getting clogged up with my own responses on my blog. The other is that I never know when someone has responded to a comment I've left on their blog.
I don't want to be notified of comments via email, because it would just make a mess of my inbox. I guess my real questions are:
1. Am I supposed to be getting notice of responses to my comments in the notifications tab?
2. Are my own comments on my blog supposed to be showing up in my notifications tab?
I don't know whether I'm dealing with glitches or some new wordpress features!
I'm using Firefox 18.0.1 with no add-ons. Firefox says this is an up-to-date version. And I've likewise done the beloved cookie dance.
