Like many of you, I’ve had problems on and off with wordpress–posts from friends going into the spam pile, posts disappearing, etc. Thankfully, these problems disappeared after a few days (or after I fixed it). However, for the past week or so I’ve been having problems with the Notifications indicator, and there doesn’t seem to be a fix. The little box in the upper right corner usually shows a number to indicate post likes/responses, but now it’s gone bonkers. I either get repeated notifications, or I get none at all. Sometimes I get a star in place of numbers; sometimes an icon that looks like a little camera. It’s never accurate. It’s not the end of the world, but it is a pain in the arse.
I dutifully checked the wordpress support section, and didn’t see one post with my problem. I discovered that there’s no way to contact wordpress directly. It’s the support forum or bust.
I am not amused.
