The “Like” Feature

    Hi, apologies if this has been asked dozens of times before. I did try searching the forum, honest, but couldn’t find an answer.

    Re: the “I like this post” feature: When someone “likes” a post I make but doesn’t reblog that post, how do I find out who they are? I’ve had a few people pressing the like feature of my most recent post and I’d love to know who they are and to read their blogs. Am I missing something really obvious on the dashboard?

    The blog I need help with is



    Perhaps staff can answer your question, but I don’t think you can view who likes your post unless they also Reblog (you will get a trackback in that case).



    Thanks for responding, Arifsali.

    I think you’re probably right. I’ve never had a difficulty figuring out a feature on WordPress before, everything seems to be set up in a way that is pretty much intuitive for the user, and I don’t see why this would be different so if it’s not readily apparent it probably isn’t there. Shame, it would be nice if it was similar to when someone “likes” a status update on your FB page and you could see who it was.



    Obviously, when somebody likes a post, the best way to say it is leaving a comment. But with this silly feature, people can vote and quote your post, even steal it, without you be able to know who is.
    And what is worse is that we users still have not the opt-out ability.

    There are a lot of people asking this opt-out ability.

    There is also the feature “Ratings”, but it’s OPTIONAL. “Like” and “reblog” are MANDATORY. And this is because the feature was made in the admin bar.

    A botched job, to my mind.
