Show Me the…

Show Me the Money! No, but show me the comments, please! It seems a lot of your comments don’t show up in the blog. It looks like they vanished into thin air. The WP Spam folder is empty. I get notifications in the Mail app on my iMac and I can find some comments in the WP My Home section. I reported this issue to WP but I’m still waiting for an answer. My apologies for this inconvenience.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Update from WP: The comment issue has been fixed. Unfortunately, any comments made from April 21st at 9AM UTC, until today at 2PM UTC will not ever reappear.

Extra update: WP fixed the problem thoroughly, all the missing comments are published.

    • Hi Takami. Thank you so much for your kind comment and concern. Glad you liked this post.
      Stay safe and healthy, my friend!

  1. That is annoying! I hope you hear back from WP – I eventually did the one time I had to write to them. Just know that even if you can’t see our comments, we are reading and enjoying you and Jimi whenever you do a post. It’s like a ray of sunshine! 🙂 That is a WONDERFUL photo of bright-eyed Jimi.

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

    • Hi Pam. I just lost a couple comments again a few minutes ago. This is really very annoying… WP should get this fixed because it looks like a lot of people having this problem.
      Glad you liked the photograph.

      Have a wonderful day, my dear friend!

      • I hope you will hear something in the next day or two Herman. I didn’t know others were having the problem but that means (I think) there’s something wrong with the program and THEY need to take care of it!

        • Hi Pam. I need to catch up on all the ‘lost’ comments of the last days. Sorry for the late respons. It looks like WP has fixed the problem.

          Wishing you a great weekend, my dear friend!

  2. same her, it does not show the comments under the blog, have to go to the admin page und open them separately, dont know how to fix it, seems to be a new WordPress “feature”..?

    • Yes, this is very annoying and I ‘lost’ new comments a few minutes ago. It looks like a lot of people having this problem… WP should fix this ASAP!

        • I need to catch up on all the ‘lost’ comments of the last days. Sorry for the late respons. WP has fixed the problem this night. It looks like all the lost comments are published…

  3. oh, I wrote, that we readers can see the comments under your blog, but some must be missing – its getting more weird, looks rather like a virus in the WP system…

    • Just got a message from WP and they will look into this problem. But I got a feeling the president of the US of A is behind this issue… 😉

  4. it’s true…can’t find your reply this morning, WP just shows 50% replies – but clicking on personal Likes in header area, my personal reply + your answer is readable in tiny window and by scrolling all others too (!) 🙈😼

    • Just got a message from WP and they will look into this problem. But it’s really weird a lot of people having the same problem recently…

  5. Herman, this seems to be happening on a number of sites. Replies to visitors comments are not always visible either, seemingly vanished into thin air. I suspect WP is having some database problems.

    • Hi Lavinia. I need to catch up on all the ‘lost’ comments of the last days. Sorry for the late respons. It looks like everything is fixed by WP. I’m catching up with almost 30 lost comments… while Jimi’s having a nap!

  6. Gah, you’re a little cutie Jimi !! Did dad get down on the floor to catch this scratch post action shot? 😁Someone needs to get that action shot, haha !
    Weird about the comments hey?! Maybe the comment police are Trump fans. Because I wasn’t kind about him at all 😏😂But he truly deserved every insult, ha! Keep good care of each other friends 💕 xK

  7. Lovely picture today! Yesterday a comment I approved did not show up. Only my answer to the comment was visible (?) However, today that comment did show. Hope yours are working soon!

    • I need to catch up on all the ‘lost’ comments of the last days. Sorry for the late respons. It looks like WP has fixed the problem…

  8. I hope that gets resolved. Maybe some of us have had the issue and didn’t even know. Thanks for the good close up of the amazing looking Jimi! Stay well….safe. 🙂

    • Hi Kristiina. WP has fixed the problem last night. I’m catching up with almost 30 lost comments…

    • Glad you like the photograph, Cornelia! I’m glad to see WP has fixed the pesky problem. Hope your problems get fixed too…

  9. Take a look in the trash file, too, Herman. I’ve had people telling me their comments don’t post either. It’s very annoying since the comments are the reward, in my opinion, for blogging. I enjoy the comments!

    Take care, stay safe, and best wishes to you and your family for getting through these miserable times!

    • Hi Doug. I need to catch up on all the ‘lost’ comments of the last days. Sorry for the late respons. WP has fixed the problem last night. All the 30 lost comments are published on the blog.
      I also love to read the comments. Just like you say, it’s a reward you get from your readers and followers. It gives you the energy to keep on going…

      Wishing you a great weekend, my friend! Stay safe and healthy!

  10. It happened to me too… But now seems fine… What’s going on… I hope they don’t create a social distance for virus between us… 🙂 by the way beautiful so beautiful photograph. Thank you, Love, nia

    • Oh no…!! The coronavirus has attacked the Internet too! 😉
      Glad you liked the photograph, Nia. Hope you’re ok and doing well.

      Wishing you a great weekend, my friend! Stay safe and healthy!

    • Hi Christine. It’s hard to vanish when you look so cute…!!
      Jimi sends his regards! Wishing you a great weekend, my dear friend!
