Broke It Again

32102166-ADB2-4EE0-B5E3-F635F5E1DDACYesterday I downloaded (or uploaded — I know there’s a difference but I’m not sure which is which) the latest update to the WordPress app for iOS. And now, when I am in my reader and go to “Visit” a post I find there, in many cases the “Like” button is missing.

I can still “like” a post if I tap the star in my reader. But not when I click on “Visit.” On most posts, anyway.

6B8FF556-4461-41C1-BFB6-8413253D22D0Is it just me? Does this happen only on the iPhone app or are those of you with Android phones also experiencing this? What about on Windows or Mac laptops?

I opened up a help ticket with WordPress, so now I’m holding my breath waiting for an answer an answer from on of the Happiness Engineers.

Just kidding! I don’t really expect an answer. Here’s one answer I received to my last ticket:


[Point of information: I pay for the “Personal” plan. I would think that should account for something.]

So? Anyone else having this issue?

    Having the same issue, also have the personal plan. Glad to see I’m not the only one. I just don’t want my readers to think I don’t read their posts.

      You should let them know, open a ticket. I’ll let you know if I get a response from WordPress. Seems like their updates to the app are one-step forward and two steps back these days.

        I do have a ticket in just waiting on their response. I also brought up the fact that I can’t create galleries from my media library. I agree, but maybe this will be remedied soon.

    [ Smiles ] Uninstall the WordPress Mobile App and reinstall it; hopefully that might help.

    Thankfully, I am not experiencing that issue on the Android platform.

    iOS seems to be very touchy!

    I don’t have a mobile phone, so I don’t use it. But they aren’t giving anyone any support anymore. They’ve decided they want businesses, which we aren’t.

      The latest WordPress app for the iPhone is a disaster.

      I just loaded the latest update for iOS (the iPhone/iPad operating system) last night and it’s a mess. Too bad the Happiness Engineers at WordPress don’t abide by the old adage, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

    I’m not currently having a problem on iPhone. Maybe i shouldn’t upload latest update 😏
    Good luck with it!

      If you’re using the WordPress app for iOS and you’re not having any issues, I recommend skipping the latest update. Maybe they’ll get it fixed in the following update.

    I have all types of issues and none of them ever get resolved. I got more help from Sight than I did from WordPress.

    Don’t usually use the app (on Android) but I have no issues like that on my laptop. Hope it gets straightened out soon!
