Wordpress Reblog Glitch?

WordPress Reblog Glitch?

I’m not sure how many have noticed or become irritated due to the REBLOG button not working. Well thanks to Chris Graham mentioning something to him when I messaged him about having to continually follow his blog, it all sort of fell into place.

Then a client mentioned to me the tonight that she couldn’t reblog. Now this time it is a bit different because Patty uses a Screen Reader and I wasn’t sure if my idea would work… IT DID…YAY

If you wish to share via REBLOG and the REBLOG button is there, but not working…this is what you need to do.


Meanwhile, we all hope that WORDPRESS will sort this irritating glitch out.

    If you’re a blogger, you’ll want to read this post.
    WordPress seriously needs to get their head out of their glitch, and fix some of what’s wrong with its service.
    In the meantime, thanks Claire for letting me know about this.
    I have found it does work, and also once I’ve refollowed the blog if the button stops working sometimes all I have to do is refresh my page (F 5) and it works.

    • You may still need to re-follow the blog on odd occasions too. I have no idea why it happens. However one of the first things i do when I am reading a post i wish to share…is to see if I am FOLLOWiNG the blog still…

  2. I’m finding that every time I visit, or like, any post, I need to refresh the page before I can use the reblog button, Claire. So far, the refollow bit hasn’t applied ?

  3. This latest WordPress update has been VERY glitchy and updates are trickling in, rather that a clean switch. I don’t like being part of their beta testers.

    I’ve been trying to add new posts by rebloging and it wasn’t working. I will have to try this one!
