Like Button Issue.
I am using WordPress 4.6.1 and Buddypress 2.6.2 on my young site:
While I was testing the site offline the like button was working normally, but as soon as I got the site online, and invited only a handful of friends to test it, it stopped working.
Now it keeps loading and it never shows up, so it’s unusable.
What might be causing this issue?
I see the button on my own posts and on my wife’s posts as well, we’re both admins. But there’s no button on any post from the other users.
seems you use jetpack to fire a share widget and it looks like there is a JS conflict.
Activate a twenty theme and se what you get.
Seems also you use WP super cache.
Clear the cache and deactivate it and make a first test.
Once Twenty active, and still no button, you need to track all plugins except BP and jetpack.
Deactivate all and reactivate one by one, until you find a culprit.
If nothing found, you can be sure that or the theme or jetpack generates the button issue.
While writing here i revisited a page (/butterfly) and could see the like button…
But i think the problem is in your install setup.
First, you use www. WordPress doesn’t use it by default.
The site is also really slow. Use GTMetrix to get a detailed analysis of what you could do for better performance.
You use also a very old plugin, and certainly outdated: pc-custom-css. Why don’t you use a child-theme ?
Your images are very large, too large imho ! The guitar as example. Original size is 2500x1440px and 577ko ! On the post, it is barely larger than a thumbnail and on the Home a little medium size.
It isn’t even optimized. I did it quickly and now it makes 303ko. Appreciate the difference and the gain if you would do this for all your pictures.
Add a little JS bug or lame script over this and you know now from where you can expect issues.
Hello and thanks a lot for your help,
Ok… Like button issue is solved, it was jetpacks’s “fault”.
I followed your advise about the pictures size and installed WP Smush, and I optimized all the pictures on the site. The “funny” thing is that after I did it and run the GTmetrix, the site’s performance appears to be worst (That’s what it shows me anyway –> Optimize images and Leverage Browser Caching are now on F-0, but the site seems to be faster when I use it with my test group anyway, I don’t get it).
About the “WWW” … Can I simply change it on my WP-admin settings to http://artisticfreedomcrew.com or it’s more complicated than that?
You probably already realized I am not an expert at all, actually I am a total noob about these things. I am only a photographer trying to get a friendly environment so my friends and guests can post their work as well, so any help will be most appreciated and welcome.
