subscribers unable to follow link back to post

    I have elected to send email subscribers truncated posts for security reasons. To read the full post they must follow links such as the title, or ” Read more of this post” to navigate to the post within the blog itself. All of the links, including the post title, read more, and post comments, all open in a blank search page somewhere within my blog and they must then navigate around to find the post. Why is this happening and anyone have any ideas on how can I fix it? showmeoz.wordpress.com Thanks a bunch.

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

    That’s odd because when I’m in your blog and click “read more” links in your posts I get the full posts. I’m using Firefox 3.6.12. And I can’t fund anything about this in support documentation http://en.support.wordpress.com/blog-subscriptions/#troubleshooting
    It sounds to me like you need Staff help. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

    Is your blog sending the email or are you? I had a case a while back where I send an email from Windows Mail with some links in the email to my site – however there is a “Feature” in Win Mail that caused the links to be broken – had to resend 200++ emails a second time – sucked –

    Thanks everyone. I’ve been away from the forum and forgot to check my post…

    Timethief – reading the posts in the actual blog is no problem – it’s the email subscription that’s the problem. One of my subscribers mentioned that when the latest post arrived in her inbox that the links to the post directed her to a place in my blog that says something like “post not found” and she’s having to navigate to the home page to find it. She sent me the links and I tried them myself with the same results. So the auto email in wordpress is throwing out bad links back to my post.

    Auxclass – I’m not sending the emails, it’s the automatic subscription email service from wordpress that’s doing it.

    I would suggest reporting that to staff. They have been tinkering with permalinks etc for a couple of months now.

    Thanks for the heads up! I hope they get that kink ironed out soon.
