Some strange things are happening on WordPress.
The first one I spotted was just before I finished my blog maintenance and decided to do some blog reading. I was looking for a particular blog I follow and just thought she had been quiet, but when I looked at my reading list more closely, I noticed she wasn’t there and so I had to re-follow and caught up with her posts, (which I did not miss many) letting her know.
How can you unfollow someone when you didn’t unfollow and they did nothing there end either?
The latest, I can’t seem to comment on one blog I follow. It’s the only blog I am so far aware of that I can’t seem to comment on, which has only happened as of today, because I was commenting yesterday ok. I see the comment has successfully posted, but when I come back to read later, it’s not there.
There is nothing to say it’s in moderation, waiting to be approved, or to say I have commented already, if I try and comment again.
I have heard of this issue before from other bloggers when reading about it a few months ago. But it’s a first for me experiencing it.
I sent the blogger a private message via her contact form. It says the message as gone, but with the weirdness of WordPress, can I really be sure? I also tried leaving a message in the last post I commented on, but again it’s not there. I thought of an attempt to contact blogger via what I thought was my post she commented on, but it wasn’t my post as I thought.
The only issue I have had, which I can’t remember which blog, was when I apologised for looking like I posted a comment twice.
This was because it did not look like it had gone. I got the blogger to remove the first comment and keep the second up, where I added a bit more, if the blogger did not mind doing so. Which this blogger did not mind.
I have had this issue on other blogs too, but luckily, I opened another window to look at the post in question first, to see if my comment was there, which it was, so it wouldn’t look like I was repeatedly posting.
What WordPress weirdness have you experienced?
