    OT — Once again (!), I hit the “like” button and all I get is a flash on the left side of the blog. This keeps happening — and not just with your blog — and I have NO idea why. I’m signed in … in fact, I signed out and signed back in to no avail.

    I know you have your blog set to accept “likes” — I just don’t know why it won’t accept mine!! I feel certain it’s the evil WP engineers who are behind it all! 👹

    P.S. If I go into the Reader (a real pain), it will accept my “like” … ???!??

      Hello Nan. Have you tried to refresh the page? Have you emptied your browser cache recently? I some times leave pages tabbed up over night to read the next day. The next day when I go back online I have to refresh the page a lot of times to like the post. Hugs

        What’s weird is that this primarily happens in the morning when I first start reading blogs. As the day goes on, the problem vanishes .., ??? Since I turn off my computer at night, it starts up again the next day. sigh

        As I mentioned, I’ve tried logging off my WP account and then logging back in … nothing. And yes, I’ve tried refreshing the page … nothing. I tried emptying the cache sometime back and again … nothing.

        What’s really weird is it only happens on certain blogs. It makes me wonder if it has something to do with the theme the person is using … especially since, as you discovered, the older themes don’t work with Gutenberg. Also, sometimes I can “like” the comment in the email notification and it will show up on the blog … other times it doesn’t.

        I do know this … it’s frustrating as HELL!! And because I have a free WP blog, I can’t even contact the help people. There used to be a general site for users to ask questions and get help from other users, but I haven’t been able to find it.

          Hello Nan. When I get caught up in a few days I will contact support and ask the question for you. Send me an email with it written up and I will copy and paste it into the chat. If it is happening when you go to my blog it is my right to ask about it. Hugs

            I’ve sent you an email that outlines some of the problems … along with what I’ve expressed here.

              Hello Nan. I will go look for it. I have not checked my email in several days. Ron has been sick for two days and sleeping a lot. His breathing is all messed up. He has bad lungs and he has been cleaning out the main shed, a job years over due, and washing it up. Everything is dirty and musty and he was not wearing a mask. So he is using his inhalers and sleeping a lot. I went to bed at 4:30 PM, woke at 11 PM. Have been up all night with my stomach problem. Thing is I did not eat a lot yesterday and stayed up after I ate. Oh well. We had planned to vote today, But that may not happen. Hugs

                Sorry about Ron’s … and your … health situation. It seems if it’s not one thing, it’s 10 more! BOTH of you take care … and don’t push it!
