Posts screen is missing "like" field

    “How to display likes on post page”. I like to have the number of likes of each post on my Posts screen and it has somehow disappeared. Now I can only see the “comments”. Can someone please tell me how to change it back to the way it was before. Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is



    I see the like button below your post here exactly where it’s supposed to display

    If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at 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 >

    If you are running one of the browsers and versions listed at please do these four things:

    1. Try clearing your browser’s cache:

    2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled:

    3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.

    4. Try enabling HTTPS:

    If it’s still happening, let us know which browser (and version of it) you’re using by checking here if necessary and also post any error reports you get.


    I see what she means, as mine is the same. When going to the admin – ALL POSTS page I can see the lists of all my posted items, but next to where stats and the little bubble that signifies comments are, there is no column for “likes” as there used to be. I liked having that there because it told me how many total likes I had on each post without having to actually go to the post to see. I have cleared my cache several times, cookies have always been enabled and it happens on both my browsers. For the record though I have a Mac so my browsers are Safari version 6.0.2 and Firefox version 18.0.2. The missing likes started happening a few days ago but then returned by that afternoon but now appear to have vanished and been gone since yesterday. Any thoughts?


    Oh and as an added note, I have always had the https, secure browsing, checked off. ;)


    This has happened to me also. They have all been reset to “0” and do not show as they used to. Can a tech look into this for us?



    Timethief, thank you for the feedback- yes, my problem is actually in the “admin – ALL POSTS” section as phoebemoretti noted. I know I was looking at some comments that are noted here, but then all the sudden the “like” column was gone and that is how I really see what’s going on with my blog quickly vs. going into each post.

    Any other thoughts are greatly appreciated. I had hoped I had accidently hit a button that I could hit again to have everything back to normal, but maybe not. :-(


    Yay they’re back! Hope they stay that way this time. I think pento/staff fixed them. Thanks pento.

    Mine are back as well!!! Thank you for your help & comments. And yes I hope they are back to stay.



    Sorry about that going missing, everyone!

    Yes – it’s definitely back to stay. :)
