Sharing a post and commenting
Hi, it seems that it’s a little tangled at the moment.. I’ve noticed my pingbacks (that are created by me to link to other pages etc of mine) also when commenting. My ‘blog name’ is stated twice? eg: (via ‘Page/Post Title’ | ApanacheApanache) I’m glad I have just tried to share, so I discovered the glitch….
Also the ‘forward and back’ arrows in the side bar are not ‘visible’ again when viewing an image/attachment.
Thanks, hope you can help :)
The blog I need help with is apanache.wordpress.com.
Thanks for the message. I think the name appearing twice in the pingback may have been a temporary WordPress.com problem as I can’t see it on your site (I am looking at this page: https://apanache.wordpress.com/2012/03/02/james-dean/) – if it’s still happening somewhere else then could you point me to it please?
The arrows in the sidebar are not part of the attachment template. Attachments have the next and previous attachment displayed under the attachment image.
Oh, and Tags, Project Types / Tags are not showing for project pages… (only the little icon) in the top left area of the sidebar.
It’s when I ‘share it to Tumblr’… (or anyone else I would think…) that is what comes up in the ‘share’ window… ‘via….’ | ApanacheApanache
You can’t see it on my site for the pingback.. as I have to edit it….
ah – I see. I shall ask the wordpress.com team about the pingbacks then as that sounds like a bug with the sharing code (which is wordpress.com specific).
For the tags etc – this is hard from a technical point of view as attachments do not have tags/ categories/ next or previous posts. As such it’s not a part of the theme.
I will look into making the categories & tags work properly for projects as that should be possible to fix.
Thanks… (sharing my page is more important than the pingbacks though… at least I can edit my pingbacks but not others who share my page via Tumblr..)
Hopefully the WordPress.com team will be able to help you with that.
I’m seeing your site title repeated twice in the browser’s title bar, as you can see in this screenshot:
That’s even though your site title is “Apanache” in your settings:
This could be responsible for the problem you’re seeing when sharing the site.
Ben, this seems like a theme issue, so I’ll let you investigate on your site. I also see a doubled title on the Lens demo: https://lensdemo.wordpress.com/
Hmm.. ok, thanks Kathryn :) (I don’t use a mac) I never see it on chrome, firefox etc though.
Thanks for the pointer Kathryn – and apologies to both of you – I should have noticed that myself!
Now I see the problem the fix is simple. I’ve made the change to the theme and submitted an update. Just need to wait for the theme team to approve it.
I’ve also tweaked a few things in the theme that will make project categories display on the project pages – amongst a handful of other small tweaks and improvements.
That’s ok bm.. and Thanks for sorting it out.. sounds good… look forward to seeing it functioning on my site.. all the best :)
Hi…. it’s sort of working… but ‘oh my gosh’… it’s now listed ‘all my projects’ not just the project types and / or tags for the relevant project….. (?)
Hope it can be sorted.
ah – sorry about that. I see the issue. I’ve submitted another fix.
Also – the social sharing issue should be solved now.
Ok.. thanks, In the meantime I’ll have to find a ‘work around’ and ‘un catagorize’ what I don’t want shown on my new portfolio/projects (I’ll leave 1 ‘odd’ one so I’ll know when it’s fixed. :)
The Tumblr share looks much better thanks (just shows the post title, and no blog name at all… so it’s still better than before) The other share types never had a problem (for me at any rate..)
Thanks again :)
The projects categories should be fixed now as well.
Glad to hear the sharing is fixed.
Thanks for clearing it all up Ben, and to Kathryn too. :))
Sorry to bother you again.. thought it may just be my browser.. but I’ve tried ‘sharing’ to tumblr, (with chrome, explorer and firefox now..) and none are working? All the other shares work, pinterest, facebook etc…
Tumblr share just displays the ‘loading’ non-stop, to no avail…. on all 3 types of browsers..? It works with my smart phone.. but that’s not as good for sharing images. (hoping it’s not at my ‘end’ as have checked everything I can think of..)
Have since contacted my internet provider… seems to have been a weird ‘glitch’… and is now fixed. (some internet channels on my tv were ‘down’ as well, is how I noticed it wasn’t my computer…) :/
Have a great weekend, and thanks again.
awesome – good to hear it’s solved!
