FURST OFF THIS POPS UP IN MY READER.? WHAT NONSENSE? THEY DON’T EVEN TELL ME WHAT SITE THIS APPARENTLY IS? MORE CONTROL MEASURES FRUMWORDPRESS!
This is a post on a private site that you’re following, but not currently a member of. Please request membership to display these posts in Reader. an jest how do i do that if they don’t tell me who it is?
I had to search to find this. Are you aware of the changes to the WP Reader? They are compressing and chopping posts in the Reader to accomplish what they call “streamlining” so the viewer can scan more posts more quickly while seeing less of your content in their reader. What WP is doing is giving your post much less than half the room it used to have in the reader, sometimes only two lines of text if you don’t have photos.
They are also now inserting blogs they promote in your Reader. So they are taking up the room they are saving by compressing your posts in the Reader with blogs you are not following and they are promoting. Personally I LIKE HAVING THE CHOICE TO FOLLOW WHOMEEVR I WISH FRUM MY OWN PREFERENCES..WITHOUT BEING LIKE U TUBE AN FACEBOOK AN THROWING ADS FOR SITES I COULD GIVE A SHIT BOUT!? wtf again??? I found that and the reader is the same on da’ phone so far! So why didn’t it change?
I really hate it when they jam carefully formatted text together, it looks very amateurish and potentially changes the meaning. lIKE TEXTING IS NEFARIOUS THIS IS A NEFARIOUS MOVE BY THE STAFF AN PEOPLE AT WORDPRESS? FOR PROFIT? THE WAY I SEE IT? AN TO COMPETE WITH THE FACEBOOK LOOK…LIKE SAID BEFORE THIS IS WHY I AM HERE IS BECAUSE THIS IS NOTHING LIKE FACEBOOK BUT THEY ARE TRYING TO TURN IT INTO THAT ..WHAT A FOOLISH MOVE IN MY OPINION! AGAIN HAS TO DO WITH PROFITS AN NOT PREFERENCES!….i SEE IT SLIDING BACKWARDS LIKE MULTIPLY AN 360 YAHOO DID.ALL TO MAXIMIZE PROFITS!? 😦 SAD THING REALLY!? 😦 I PAY TO HAVE THIS THE WAY IT WAS NOT FOR NEGATIVE CHANGE? ALL FOR POSITIVE CHANGE BUT STEALING FRUM CUSTOMERS IS NOT POSITIVE CHANGE AN THIS TO ME IS STEALING FRUM CUSTOMERS WHAT THEY BOUGHT AN PAYED FOR TO STAY THE SAME AS THEY PAY FOR IT TO BE!..BUT THEY WILL TELL U THE READER IS A FREE SERVICE AN TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT RIGHT JEST LIKE YAHOO DID!? bah humbug 2 u wordpress …..i refresh the reader an it goes blank wtf? again?????????????wtf? wordpress do we have tracking software now addeed AlSo?????
Some of the format ideas have potential, but as it is I’d call it a step backwards. This place isn’t Facebook, and shouldn’t be treated like it is.,,,,this is a place to have blog posts and a SECURE internet page the way u want it an not the way wordpress wants it!…i pay for my dot com here………..is totally chicken shit to me that companies like yahoo360…multiply …go down the tubes an become commercial only after doing stuff like this………I have had 4 websites in 10 years now an every company has pulled this crap..LIKE WTF is what i have to say …….must be 300 people that don’t have a clue what is happening here!……insanity at its best when ya try to convince someone that taking away is better…I came to wordpress cuz they had more.over the past few years with all their scripting etc etc…has become more an more like facebook every time they make the changes..is totally fucked up.i liked the format 2 years ago much better! an i know most of my readers did also…..
now i do a post an get 2 sentences in reader? wtf? i rely on my reader an now it is garbage…WTF wordpress?????????????????????????????streamlining WHAT UR PROFITS!?????????????
ON TOP OF THAT WELL????? i subscribe to 500 plus people to read in my reader used to like it a lot! now it is GARBAGE! AN TAKES FOREVER TO LOAD AN ALSO CUTS SHORT WHENEVR IT FEEL LIKE IT AN ONLY SHOWS ME 25 ER 30 POSTS ER SO AN THEN ENDS.I USED TO BE ABLE TO SCROLL THE WHOLE DAYS POSTS IN MY READER FRUM ALL MY READER NOT NOW? WTF ONCE AGAIN! WTF????????????? PROFITS OVER PERSONALITIES AN PEOPLES PREFERENCES IS BOUT IT! LIKE 360 MULTIPLY AN SO MANY OTHER BLOG WERLDS THAT DESTROYED THEIR BLOG SIDE OF THEIR WEB WORLD! an went COMMERCIAL…THIS SUCKS! truly to me.a step backwards in time !
This seems manipulative and non-transparent on WordPress’s part and not in the best interest of bloggers. Ugh! Terrible! That’s really underhanded. Why should they decide what we or our readers should see?t is kind of a form of bullying and I did see the change and all of their advertised sites and no offense to them I wouldn’t sign on. Not a cool Christmas gift to bloggers WP!
OMG Really trulY (WHY) OH WHY) check this out! Over 300 people have LIKED it so far!
A Refreshed Reader for 2017….what a fuked up X MAS PRESENT AGAIN 4 THE READERS! who USE THEIR READERS daily!………
Reader now sports a simplified design, new post layouts, spiffed-up tag pages, and recommended posts.
reader, WordPress.com Reader
ps: open my editor takes 4 EVeR NOW ?? an can’t use the pull down bar in the editor for coloring or underlining text etc etc..still have to drag it frum somewhere else? another WTF?>
- WP no longer show which WordPress template each of us uses. Some folks like to change theirs occasionally and can’t find out what the template name is when I see someone has an interesting one. Annoying to say the least. I get a suspicion that with this new format then in the future the bloggers can pay to get their posts promoted in the WP readers, just like in Instagram. I am afraid it will go that way.
- an on top of all that i PAY TO HAVE A DOT COM AD FREE..SO WHAT THE FUK ARE THEY DOING PUTTING ADS AT THE BOTTOM OF MY WEB PAGES FOR THEN????????????? AN ALL THE NEW CALYPSO JAVA SCRIPT ERRORS ARE INSANE .WHY NOT JEST LEAVE SOMETHING GOOD ALONE! I WUNDER? forced obsolescence an forcing everyone on the net to update to newer software by all the companies involved SUKS ALSO IN MY BOOK!…..If i have a 3 year old car an it is in good running condition ..why force me to put a new transmission in it to still drive it on the same roads?
- PEACE-OUT frum

I thought the loading issues were my computer- I see they are not. I am so ticked off about this!!!!!!!
replied 2 ya here but comment came out below…
happy holiday 2 U an urs! Q
I have read many complaints. I have always opened posts. Maybe my settings didn’t allow full posts in the Reader, so it doesn’t seem a lot different to me. Oh well. I’m sorry.
it used to be nice cuz if it was a short post the complete post would show yes in the reader…an it didn’t give me ads to other sites that i have no interest in…also when i clicked on the post it would open the post an not the whole page of the user i was clickin on ..an all the suggested pages i have already read days before..? like wtf? is all i can truly say i do not understand why companies have to make the package hard to open etc etc..oh well…..take care robin. Q
whats amazing is that 300 plus people clicked like on the wordpress post bout it
WELL HAVE A GOOD HOLIDAY SEASON MILL……..! TAKE CARE U AN UR FAM 🙂 FRUM DA RANTING q LOL…
Oy! 😉 xoM
Really! WTF!! it took me forever to post a post! then when I went to open yours, the damn thing crashed!! Not Liking it!! Hi Quark! 🙂
I was wondering what was wrong with my Reader… and why the hell I see reference to blogs I’m not subscribed to, while I can’t really see well the posts of blogs I’m subscribed to… very annoying… I share your sentiments 😦
Overall, I like Word Press, and when blog hosting is free, we can expect changes that take us by surprise. LOL! I too dislike those reader notifications telling me to subscribe to a private blog, but doesn’t tell me what blog it is. To the best of my knowledge, I don’t subscribe to private blogs. So, I scratch my head — did a blog I follow post a private post? Did a blog I follow change to private? Ahhh — the questions.
I do try to visit the blogs I follow in order to give them a view/hit, but when paying if forward to over 200 blogs, that can be really time consuming. That means I have to decide what blogs to visit, and what blogs to see in the reader and click like to without visiting.
What really frustrated me is when Word Press removed the social media buttons from the reader. I enjoy promoting other bloggers by tweeting links to their blogs, but when Word Press removed the social media buttons from the reader, it makes it more time consuming to have to visit every blog that you want to tweet out.
…well, i used to like the way the reader werked…i could scroll down through it for days ..of all the posts of the 600 plus posters io follos…was nice the way it was to me…gave good exposure also etc etc..now it is limited compared to how it used to be…oh well such as life……Q
Hi Quark, many thanks for the follow! 🙂
