This will hopefully be the last time I post about the frustrating glitches I am experiencing with WordPress. I have decided just to live with them, and accept that they are not going to be put right, anytime soon.
Currently, I am still not receiving post notifications of around 30% of posts from sites I follow. This is very random, as some bloggers always ‘get through’, whilst some never do. On blogs with one or more posts in a day, I might get one, and miss two. They do seem to all be getting onto the Reader, but I have no way of knowing if this is all of them, of course.
I have contacted WordPress, and done as they ask, by allowing their emails through my email provider. I added the WordPress addresses as contacts, and that improved things a little. But many notifications are up to three days old when they arrive, whilst others are notified immediately. This generally leaves me playing ‘catch up’ with posts from blogs I follow, and arriving late to the party. It also means that I am oblivious to many posts that I don’t ever see.
I have re-followed the blogs that are most affected, and that made no difference whatsoever, so I am now at the mercy of The Reader, to find any posts from sites I follow. It seems to me that there is a real deep-down problem in WordPress, and they are either unaware of it, or can’t be bothered to address it. But enough of all this. No more frustrations over missed posts, and wondering why.
I will do my best to keep following everyone through The Reader. If I have missed one of your posts, then don’t think I have ignored it. I’m still here, and will continue to do my utmost to keep in touch.
