notifications and comments
From today my notifications won’t load and when I comment on other sites the comment disappears, probably going into the spam folder of the relevant blog and when I press the ‘like’ button on other blog posts it redirects me to a new tab which won’t load.
The blog I need help with is pviljoen.wordpress.com.
Can you please give a link to post on another site where you tried leaving a comment so we can check what happened to it?
The issue with Likes and notifications both sound like something that would be caused by a browser problem.
And if you’re using any browser add-ons like ad-blockers, or anti-tracking extensions, please see if the problem goes away if you disable those.
All the sites I visited opens a new window when I press the ‘like’ button to the post, but the main one I used was inkinthirds.com where comments disappeared too. You will notice some comments loaded, but some didn’t and none of the ‘likes’ to comments or the post worked. The like comment only works when I press it in the Reader, not on the site itself. I’ll clear the browser and see if it works.

The comments you leave on inkinthirds.com are probably held for moderation. When the site’s owner approves them, you’ll see them appear.
As for the Like button, can you please try a different browser and also let me know what browser and which version you’re currently using?
Inkinthirds.com don’t have comment moderation on. We post micro poems in the comment section of the relevant post and discuss and ‘like’ each others’ work, all within the comment section.
I cleared the browser yesterday – Google Chrome but it is still the same. I wonder if it isn’t to do with the slow internet connection which isn’t fast at the best of times (I live remote) and now that the holiday season is here and the place flooded with tourists might be slowing it up a lot more.
Thanks for the effort to have this resolved. One does want other bloggers to know one has read or seen their work.
Hi Petru, please get in touch here:
Choose “I think Akismet is catching my comments by mistake.” and the team there will investigate.
It’s possible a slow internet could be the issue. Or a blocked script. But if you allow plenty of time and it still doesn’t work, can you make sure your browser is allowing third party cookies for WordPress? If you’re inclined you can also option-click and choose Inspect, and click on Console, then get a screenshot of any errors you see there when you click the Like button. Upload the screenshot here:
And we’ll help you troubleshoot. :)
Oh, I did want to note, too, with the holidays upon us it may take a bit longer for them to check on that for you, but just contact once and they’ll sort it out when they can. Thanks!
