WordPress.org Comment Woes

It has come to my attention ( thank you, you know who you are ), after a rouse of suspicion while fixing other issues, that my site’s comments aren’t showing in the WordPress Reader, under conversations and in the WordPress app for notifications. So, if you have commented and heard nothing but birds skittley-whooping ( This is something Misty and I were laughing about over the weekend ) in the background, this is why. For now, I urge commenters to check the box here, if you want to stay abreast:

I absolutely do care about the functionality of this blog, and you as followers deserve something that works correctly, as well as me, as a site host. I have a support entry in the JetPack plugin support forums. Let’s hope someone has some well suggestions.

  • Do any of my followers use WordPress.org / a.k.a self hosted that is not on the WordPress.com mega-cloud?
  • If so, have you had issues like this?

EDIT: I just got off the line with my web host. After getting disconnected 4 times, they told me there was nothing they could do from their end. The saga continues . . .

Don’t think I won’t use this as an opportunity to share a recommendation! 😊 The other night, I re-watched A Beautiful Mind:

This movie is of life and transcends genre. Based on a true story, we are led through the struggles of John Forbes Nash Jr., an American mathematician, among several other things, that also suffered from paranoid schizophrenia, but also won awards such as the Nobel Peace Prize. Not only did he suffer with this disease, he made great stride in battling the disease! I think we can all use this as a lesson to overcome, instead of being a victim of our circumstance.

Guys, until next time – may you find all the happiness that your life can fit in it’s happy spot – S.D. McKinley

Oh, I never get notified when someone replies to a comment of mine, only when they like it. If I think they might reply and I’m interested, I’ll just keep checking back. I’m not going to check that box, because some discussions have 10s of comments and I don’t want a notification every time someone leaves a new one!

I understand that! I don’t blame you at all. I actually need to do some house keeping, because my email is starting to become unmanageable.

I will get this fixed. Are you .ORG or .COM? I have been thwarting the issue on my end, here, by replying, then liking the comment, so then you hopefully get notified of a reply. This technology stuff sometimes is like a needle in a haystack. That little needle in there can mess up the whole show, but when you find it and the glory of God, the creator shines down through the sky as a beam through the clouds, and it’s a beautiful thing.

Hear, hear on the glory of God!

I think that many people use the Like feature as basically a “marked as read.” I have occasionally had people Like comments that they clearly disagree with. And I, of course, “Like” posts about things such as trauma if I think it’s a good post.

The down side is that Liking has become kind of inflationary. Now, when someone replies to a comment and doesn’t Like it, it feels kind of cold, even though usually it’s clear they don’t mean to freeze me out.

I think I am .com. I pay for the domain.
