Here’s an odd occurrence on WordPress: My “Likes” aren’t sticking.
Normally, I prefer and use Firefox as my browser. Since yesterday, I’ve revisited posts I know I’ve Liked, only to see they are not. A good example is the “If Challenge” to which I responded, as well as linked comments I’ve visited. Re-Liking the posts and then reloading showed no Like. Oddly, Liking a post from the brief teaser in my Reader seems to stay when I reload the Reader, but I prefer the appearance of a blogger’s page over the generic feel of the Reader.
So, I’ve used Chrome to revisit some of those posts, clicking Like and reloading them. It seems to be working, so I’m using Chrome for now. I’ll retry Firefox in a few days.
Besides the satisfaction of posting my poetry on WordPress, the greatest appeal of WordPress for me is the community interaction, and the Like button is part of that.
