thank you sooo much for bearing with me over this weekend…. We had some problems in identifying that if you sign up to follow the blog you should be receiving all posts- new comments everything basically that gets updated onto the blog… huge apologies as up until now I don’t think this has been happening..
so here is what we need to do even if you have signed up to follow the blog before today…
1) use your email address to sign up for a wordpress.com account… you will have to visit the wordpress.com site to do this…. great if you blog already… if not you have the choice as to whether or not to start one up… you will need to start up a worpress.com account if you want to follow the blog & haven’t been receiving all the comments & updates..
2) create an account username… – now it should recognise your current username if you are using it in conjunction with the email address you have previously used for posting… if not Im so sorry but you may have to adopt a new username…
3) once your wordpress.com account is created — visit your account dashboard which should appear on the left hand side… scroll down to “blogs I follow” check to see if the blog is listed… if not enter the address whelikre it tells you to enter the URL.. the blog address.. is https://rooftopsandrafters.wordpress.com enter that….
4) ensure that your email notifications are set if you click where it says EDIT it gives you a choice of following the blog instantly or set to a day/time to recive your email notifications..
5) check that the button is clicked for ON… this should create a pop up under the listing for the blog which tells you that you will receive all notifications by email for new posts & comments to the blog
I have checked that it does indeed work through a test email to a separate email & online persona I created & it sent it to myself as tho I was a follower of the blog so I am hopeful this will be the answer…as it was succesful
I apologise for the fiddlyness of it all & the inconvenience of it but this seems to be the way forward…
thank you for your grace & patience whilst this was sorted out… I do so want everyone to receive everything they sign up for…
alternatively – you may sign up to follow comments & replies to the comments you contribute… please be sure to tick the boxes at the bottom of the “add your comment” box each time you post… however, please be aware that you have to make a post in order to receive replies on that thread… there is no other option to have notifications for specific posts & threads..
be very blessed & please do let me know by email if there are any further problems
