Heads up people! Today’s lesson is about another mysterious WordPress issue it seems many of us have been encountering.
We all talk about crazy things WordPress does, sometimes without our knowing, leaving us in the dark, only to be discovered when something goes awry, or by another blogger who points out their findings, as I discovered.
Well, for a few weeks I hadn’t been receiving quite a few blog posts I follow. It took me awhile to realize because I receive at least 50 notifications on any given day. And sometimes I’ll notice that one of my favorite bloggers hadn’t posted in awhile and I’ll pop over to their blog manually to check if if they’re okay and see if I missed any posts. Usually I’ll find they may just be on a blogging break. But sometimes I find I’ve missed a slew of their posts.
This finding has happened to a few bloggers I’ve chatted with who’ve had the same problem. This prompted me to go into my ‘managed follow’ under the reader drop box in the upper left corner of our blogs. And voila! I found that WordPress had ‘magically’ turned off all forms of receiving notifications for many blogs I wasn’t receiving. So I carefully went down the list of blogs I follow, and re-selected how I preferred my notifications and turned them back on.Are you missing blog posts you've subscribed to? Click To Tweet
So, my advice today is to go to your notifications and manage your subscriptions and follows. And try and make it a practice to check on those every once in awhile to make sure WordPress isn’t up to their shenanigans and playing hide and seek with you too.
Now I’m sure my 50 posts will become well into the 70s flooding my inbox, but what’s a blog addict to do?
