Posts I Like Not Loading
With the new format of WordPress, the Post I Like page in the Reader does not load all of the posts. Should I continue to wait for it to load or is there something to click for more? Or have I lost much of the history of my likes?
The blog I need help with is faithwordsandwhimsy.wordpress.com.
If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.
Note: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see > http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html
If you are running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com please do these four things:
1. Try clearing your browser’s cache:
2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled: http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/
3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.
4. Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/
If it’s still happening, let us know which browser (and version of it) you’re using by checking here if necessary http://www.whatbrowser.org/ and also post any error reports you get.
I, too, have noticed that since the new format of WordPress took effect, all of the previous posts I “liked” have vanished from my reader. It’s certainly not the worst thing that could have happened, but I used the “like” function as a way of creating a library of some of my favorite posts from a mix of blogs that I follow and others that I don’t, and I’m bummed to have lost the library I had started.
@musinnmoseyin I’m not the only one! Thanks for sharing that you’re also having trouble with this. I used my Likes as a library too and am sad that I don’t have access to those things I thought I was in essence saving.
@timethief Thanks for the recommendation, but the answer you gave went way over my head. I use Firefox on my Macbook. It’s version 16.0.2. Is there a different way you could explain so I know what to change? Or perhaps something else I could try?
I feel disappointed that the updates seem to change so much of what I feel should be a basic part of the WordPress experience, especially for someone who’s used it for a while.
I attempted each of the steps you laid out. I’m using Firefox version18.0.2 and cleared my cache. My third party cookies are enabled. I restarted my browser with add-ons disabled. I enabled https this afternoon. No error reports come up, but when I click on “Posts I Like” from my reader, the only ones that come up are since the WordPress interface changed.
I’ll tag this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.
Could you send us a screenshot of the page where you’re seeing this?
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Sorry, but I’m not sure what you mean. There’s no “Page Won’t Load” message or anything like that. When I click on the “Posts I Like” page from “Reader,” I only have the posts I’ve “liked” in the past two months. None of the posts I had “liked” last year show up anymore.
Please post screenshot, upload it to your Media Library, and return to this thread to provide the file name so Staff can examine it.
Hi. I took some screenshots, one titled “From Posts I Like Page” and “From Blogs I Follow Page.” The first one shows how I scroll to the bottom of the page but nothing more loads, while the second one shows that the “Blogs I Follow” link does load more options. Like @musinnmoseyin said, there is no error page. It’s just that there is now a limit to what shows on that website where before the system change more links loaded.
The maximum limit history of posts you are able to see is around 2 months, and that’s the reason why no more posts in your reader are loading. We’ve registered your feedback and will keep it in mind for future features and updates.
Okay. Thank you for the answer. To clarify, that is different from before, right? I was able to see a much longer history before the WordPress changes. I preferred that, but I will work with this if this is so.
It’s been like this for quite some time now, but I’m not sure how long. It’s possible that there will be changes/improvements in the future.
Thanks for your feedback.
