Commenting issue on a self hosted blog?

By | March 23, 2018

I donno why comment box in a self hosted blog post [Jetpack enabled] disappears from the mobile devices [phones, tablets or ipads].

Though comment box  is not shown up in mobile wordpress app for self hosted blogs, it appears in desktop page.

Its really frustrating when you are unable to leave a feedback after reading a post of your choice.

A few solutions which I have seen are

  • Go to the direct web blog URL as in wordsandnotion
  • Tap on the Gravatar icon which will take you to the reader view of whole blog posts and there tap on the required one to comment
  • Tap on the post link if it appears along with your notifications

While I tried to contact Jetpack team, they told like ‘this commenting feature is yet not fully implemented.’

And interestingly one more thing they informed me. That is if you follow more than 1K or 2K blogs, self hosted blogs wont appear in your reader even if you follow them.

So only option is to subscribe on self hosted blog like wordsandnotion [ not the regular wordpress follow]. Then you will get email notifications on post updates. [E-mail notifications wont be getting for wordpress followers from self hosted blogs, you will get emails only if you subscribe]

If this specific post comes to the notice of Jetpack team or wordpress team, I wish some workarounds to happen at the earliest from their side

Also if you already know any solutions for these issues please let me know… [ so if you are on mobile devices and if you dont see comment box along with this post in your wordpress app, please tap on my gravatar icon or go directly to wordsandnotion to leave your comments]
