Missing comments

I don’t know if anyone else has noticed any glitches on their blog recently, but it would appear that some of your comments aren’t coming up in the post (though they are included in the shown number of comments) and neither are some of my replies!
So if you read comments and the responses don’t make sense, it’s because the originals are ‘missing’!
I’ve checked spam and trash, and they aren’t in there so I hope my responses are getting through to my readers.
The Happiness Engineers at their best again perhaps.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    That’s interesting. Sue Vincent just posted on the same topic. It seems that there may be a problem….

    I think everything’s just buckling under the strain. So many people working from home, or streaming movies, or using the Internet and technology for so many things, there are glitches everywhere.

  3. Similar thing here – I’m getting the email notification of a comment, but when I go to reply, I can’t see them.

  4. Mine is doing exactly the same thing, I’m glad I’m not alone. I expect it was some clever it person from WordPress or somewhere who thought this was a much better way of doing things. I have news for them, it isn’t!!

    I thought there was something going off with yours, when I didn’t see the comments matching the number of supposedly comments.
    I spotted it on some posts, but not this week that I am aware of. But I didn’t know it was happening regular.
    I have seen this happening on another blog or two. But again, not sure what of an issue it is and I can’t remember where.
    I hope it’s sorted.
    Not affecting me.

    • Glad to hear. I’ve just picked up 12 comments through dashboard that were included in the number on my drop down ‘bell’ but not showing! I hope i respond to everybody! You having a good day Liz? Have posted our walk this morning with pictures to hopefully raise some spirits of people who can’t get out for any reason.

      • Liz says:

        Now I have been finding I have that issue you have, bell not showing I had comments, until I actually look directly under comments pending. That has been happening the past couple of weeks I think for me.

        I am getting a bit worked up. But nust simmering after a chat with my boss.

        I am at work at the moment, so will check on posts tonight. Xx

      • Keep well Liz. ❤

    I have noticed a lot of glitches

    You’re right! WP has done it again. I don’t see the comments in my notifications but if I click on the post, there they are.

  8. PoojaG says:

    I’m having the exact same problem. Hopefully WordPress will fix it soon.

  9. Bindu says:

    Haha! I haven’t get any comments yet. My blog is https://abundantlifeintoronto.wordpress.com/ and it is about money, investments and life.

    I’ve been finding it difficult to deal with WordPress really. When I receive the emails from the blogs I follow, I can follow links to the sites – but I can’t like or comment – even if I sign in. That’s annoying, because I want to follow and support people, but that’s a glitch. It means if I like the story I have to go back to my site, to the reader section and then find you.
    It would be so convenient and encouraging if I could follow the email links, read, like, comment – voila!
    Also, the Friday Fictioneers / inlinkz run by Rochelle – I’m sure that I tick a box that says something like ‘advise when next party starts’ but I never get advised. It is only because everyone’s posts come through when I go ‘ah, that time of the week!’.
    I know some of you seem to be writing posts full-time and don’t need that prompt – I do 🙂
    My whinge for the afternoon.

    • Pleased to see you and to have you comment. I rely on my reader for posts as the email thing never worked for me. I follow a few others but they never come into my reader but some of the prompts do via other sites I follow so I can usually pick up a prompt from there, or go looking for it on the original site.
      My time is my own since taking early retirement in 2007, though I didn’t start my blog until Sept 2013. I talk/blog a lot, so hope I don’t bore people silly! I try to give variety though. Take care and keep safe.

    I had some go to spam that are regular followers… I know that if I comment from my phone the comments are counted but don’t show up. It is very frustrating.
