Why are my comments not showing up as notifications?
For the past year or so, my comments on some other blogs have been severely limited by the fact that they aren’t appearing as notifications to others. This has impacted on my conversing with other bloggers and has been a constant nuisance. Can anyone help me out as it’s really aggravating now?
The blog I need help with is vinnieh.wordpress.com.
Hi @vinnieh, it would depend on the site and on their personal settings.
If someone is complaining of not getting notifications when you comment, can you link us to the affected site / post, and also let us know which person complained? We’ll check it out.
Sometimes I think it happens on my blog. When someone comments and I reply, they don’t seem to get it but the comment is still there. I’m currently asking my followers to tell me if this issue has affected them.
Hope that is helpful. Seems that some people aren’t getting my replies to comments on my blog.
Can you give us a link to a specific comment or two that did not send a notification? Who receives the notification is very important in this case. :)
Well a comment on this post, didn’t get a notification.

Cracking choice of song.
Many have said that if I comment they have to go on my blog to see the comment.
Thanks. I checked on the person who said they didn’t get your reply. They have blocked all emails and can fix that setting here:
I’m not sure if they’re also complaining of not setting the notification in the list under the bell icon, or push notifications. I can see that user has notifications waiting, though. We’ll need them to be involved in this thread if they’d like to troubleshoot that, though, so we’re not just relaying back and forth between you.
Thanks for telling me that. What about people saying that they aren’t getting notified of me relying to them on my blog? Some say they have to go on my site to see the comment rather than get notified.
Here’s another comment

They’re still not showing up in my notifications. But if I look in the comments sections on specific posts I can see if you’ve commented. No idea what’s going on with that LOL.
Regarding https://sonofabeach96.com/2019/10/28/black-white-challenge-things-found-in-a-kitchen/comment-page-1/#comment-46382 similar to earlier, that person chose to block all emails from us. The solution for them will be the same as mentioned earlier.
Regarding https://maddylovesherclassicfilms.wordpress.com/2019/10/28/five-british-horror-classics-for-halloween/#comment-5962 they’re not blocking us, but they also aren’t subscribed to comment email notifications for that thread.
Certain followers are saying that the notification icon isn’t appearing.
Hi @vinnieh, we have to troubleshoot notification icon issues with the individual user that is having trouble. Please have them get in touch so we can help.
I do not get Vinnieh’s replies to my comments via the bell icon notifications bar.
However, I do get notified there that he liked my comment. This has been happening for a long time now.
Thanks for looking at this, and I hope you can help him.
Thanks beetleypete –
A few follow up questions to help us get started. Please grab a screen shot of the missing notification from the bell icon as well.
– Are you working from an app or browser?
– Which type and version number?
– Are there any browser extensions installed?
I don’t see Vinnie’s comments unless I specifically go to the Comments page. All other bloggers appear fine
Thanks, please answer the same questions my colleague mentioned above.
Has there been any progress with analysing the problem?
