Saturday Housekeeping: Like Button, Facebook, Comments, Posts by email

I’m still learning about all the switches and options available on WordPress, and you may have noticed that I sometimes experiment with the site. Hopefully these pages will get better as time goes by. Suggestions are always welcome, especially from those who have more knowledge of technology than I do.

Every week, I find more options available for you as a reader and for me as I write. I’ll post updates and notes on Saturdays.

Re: “Like” Button

For example, one friend wished that she had a “Like” button for each post, similar to the “Like” button on Facebook. I found it! You’ll need to click on the link to Comments to see the option. It will be at the end of the post.

I have  no idea what the result of clicking “Like” will be — probably only a running total of how many people like a certain post. Would someone please Like this post, so we know what happens when you click that button?

Re: Comments

Speaking of comments, if you signed up for the email version of the blog posts, I know that you can still leave comments from that email, but I don’t think you can view comments that others have made. To see others’ comments on a post, you will have to go to the website. And you can also Reply to comments left by guests …

Re: Post by email

I noticed that the email version of the posts does not always hold the format of the originals, especially the italics. Sorry. I don’t like that, but I haven’t figured out yet how to fix it.

If you’re reading the email posts and want to go to the site, just click on the title of the post in your email. That will take you directly to the website page.

Re: Facebook posting

Thanks to anyone who has posted links on Facebook back to this blog. Again, I think there’s a button here somewhere for Facebook and Twitter links, but since I’m on neither of those networks, I haven’t figured it out yet. If you want to help me with that, great!
