I have been communicating with the WordPress Happiness Engineers nearly every day since November 3rd when the latest version of the WordPress app for iOS was installed on my iPhone. But so far our communications have not yielded any positive results. Up until today, maybe.
I once again did my best to explain what the issue is with respect to not being able to “like” or comment on some other bloggers’ posts from the reader on my iPhone. I wrote…
Every post where the site’s address does not include “.wordpress.com” has this problem and every site where the address does include “.wordpress.com” does NOT have this problem. This problem surfaced ONLY after version 16.0 of the iOS app was installed on my iPhone. There were no such problems before the update. So it’s pretty clear that whatever enhancements that were made to the reader in version 16.0 triggered the issues.
This time the response I got did not cite user error as the cause of the problem or blame it on my phone’s browser. In fact, the response I got was this…
Thanks! That is very helpful to try and replicate this problem. I’m sharing this with the rest of the team and we’ll jump into testing right away. As soon as we have an update we’ll keep you in the loop 🙂
So maybe, just maybe, a fix is in the works in the near future. Maybe.
In the meantime, if your blog does not have “.wordpress.com” in its address, I’m still unable to “like” or easily comment on your posts. Hopefully the issue that’s causing the problem will soon be rectified. Maybe.
