  1. Just a suggestion, a link with a short excerpt would be similar. Also nice to leave a comment on the original post, just to be sure they know your intentions.

      1. Not only easier for the one who was reblogging it, but also for the potential readers. You were able to read the beginning and figure out if it interested you or not. Not that would fall on the person who re-blogs, and honestly, that is not the same.

      1. Yes completely agree, so its not up to the reblogger to try and make it as interesting as possible. I suppose you could paste and copy the first few lines but then why when we had a very good button that did that for us

      1. Exactly. I didn’t notice it until someone told me about it. I was going through everything to figure it out and that was the response I received. I just left it alone after that.

  2. In a Word Press forum, they have not given an answer, but there’s a person sharing there as if speaking for Word Press, and they tried picking a personal fight with myself and at least one other. I challenged their alternative suggestion of “creating” a post and linking back to the original. It sounded as if she was suggesting to copy and paste as an alternative to reblogging.

    I shared that a major benefit of the reblog button was so rebloggers could not change the content of original posts they reblog. Evidently, that rattled her cage so she decided to visit my blog and offer her unfair and ignorant assessment that my embedding links to my news sources means that I don’t actually create original content.

    Oh — and she gave a link to where bloggers can search the internet to see if their content is being STOLEN.

  3. We have an answer from a Word Press Happiness Engineer

    ” Hi all. Just an update. It appears this happened because we removed some deprecated code, i.e. code for a feature that no longer exists, but it seems the reblog button was also using some of that code.

    Adding back the deprecated code is not an option, so our developers are working on replacing it with updated code that will allow the button to work again. We’re already testing potential fixes, so hopefully it won’t be too much longer.

      1. Word Press says that if the reblog button is not appearing on your blog to clear your browser cache. I did that, but the button is not showing on either of my blogs. I left a message so they can check into it. If anyone else has that problem, I can post the resolving results here.

      2. I’m seeing it on other blogs, but not my own. That includes 3 other blogs in which I have administrator privileges as a help, but do not write for. Maybe I’m not suppose to see it on those blogs. (shrug)

        If you can do me a favor, please, can you visit https://blackbutterfly7.wordpress.com/ and see if the reblog button appears for you?

      1. I never have used it before. I’ve used reblog about four or five times. If I want to post on fb I usually go to the site address and go from there. I know you reblog a lot, so good luck! : ) I try to learn as I go, uh huh…not always successful.
