    Hi guys. I’m having issues reblogging other posts. Every time I click the reblog button, it says “We encountered an issue reblogging this. Please try again.” I’m using WordPress.com, not WordPress.org as I know that reblogging doesn’t apply to WordPress.org users. Any advice? Thanks!

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

    You can only reblog the same post once per user.

    I haven’t reblogged at all. From the very first try it said “we encountered an issue reblogging this. Please try again.”

    Oh! Well that’s very weird. I tagged this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to it so you are notified when they respond. To subscribe look in the sidebar of this thread, find the subscribe to topics link and click it.

    Please provide the URL of the post you tried to reblog and got this error message instead.

    Hi bekahmoten,

    I’m sorry you’re having trouble reblogging. I just did a test reblog and it worked for me. Let’s start with the basics. Can you try clearing your browser’s cookies and cache, make sure you’re accepting JavaScript and don’t have any browser extensions that could be causing trouble? Here is a page on some common browser issues:

    You could also try to reblog in another browser to see if that resolves it. If not let us know.

    Don’t laugh, but how do you do that?

    I tried opening it on another browser, but it didn’t work.

    Hi bekahmoten Are you getting the same error or a different one? Also do you know if you have any browser extensions/addons installed?

    Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. It’s the same error. I think I have a browser extension installed…..

    @bekahmoten,

    I just had a thought. Is the content you are trying to reblog on on a private blog? Also have you previously reblogged the post in the past (each post can only be reblogged by the same user once)

    Here is more information on how rebloggs work:
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/reblogs/

    If you’re still having trouble let us know which post you are trying to reblog (by adding a link here) and we can take a look.

    Thanks.

    The post I’m trying to reblog isn’t private. I’ve never been able to reblog anything in the past. The same error has occurred from the very beginning. Here’s the link to the post: http://glamrs.com/2015/06/07/quick-easy-negative-space-nail-art/

    Thanks!

    Hi @bekahmoten Sorry to hear you’re having trouble. I have been unable to replicate it on our end.

    Another option is using Press This instead of the Reblog feature. Press this will allow you to select which text/content to share:
