What up WordPress?


I blog from my phone most of the time. It’s quick, easy and always seems to be nearby. But when I updated my operating system and my apps the other day WordPress threw me a curve. I can no longer click on commenter’s avatars and find their blogs from my friend’s pages which is pretty annoying. It’s always been a good way to read and meet new people and I feel like WordPress just slammed a door in my face.

Aside from that, this is what I see when someone comments on my posts:



In the current climate of internet privacy run amok… do I really need to have access to everyone’s email and IP address? No. I do not.

(Apologies to Kenny, but I didn’t think he’d mind be made an example of.)

Anyone else experiencing this?

  1. Like Boo, I do not blog from my phone. I do get e-mail notifications (on my phone) if someone wrote a new blog, and I can read the blog from my phone, but that is about it, as it does not allow me to respond or even “like” from my phone.

      1. It really is! I have been able to use the blog name and then search for it and find it that way, but the other way is so much easier! I tried uninstalling and installing, but it didn’t change anything. I no likey!

  2. Blogging from my phone would be a nightmare. My fingers are fat and shaky, which is why you’ll never hear me plunking and thumping on the guitar. I don’t mind showing up on your post. My fame (Infamy) increases apace. Sorry for your trouble.
    This post wasn’t very much fun, try to do better.

  3. The advantages of not using my phone to access the internet except in emergencies, which I have not had one yet. (Knock on woody head!)
    When you are in comments on your phone, does it not show the commenter’s name and then their blogsite in blue?

  4. That little square with the arrow in it should take you to the commenter’s blog. We’ve always had access to the email address, if you dig/dug far enough. I don’t like the changes they made to the app. Their mission seems to be “make this less intuitive.”
