Comments I’ve Made – Did I Say That? Woodie Knows WordPress

Woodie knows WordPress - Carrie Spencer Smart Ass RomanceOh there’s so many brilliant blogs out there to follow. (Including this one of course!) I subscribe via email and via my Feedly account and comment when I’m not busy remodeling the burrow in the garage. I’m thinking of adding on another room . . .

Anyways, while I’m out surfing the net (thanks for providing the wi-fi Carrie!) I generally leave brilliant insights and pithy comments through the blogging world.

And just as quickly, I’ve forgotten whom I said what to.

I’m getting older now you know. I’ll be three in February!

So, how do we solve this dilemma Woodie?

It’s easy. First, I’ll point out that this only works on WP blogs that require your email address.

First, go to your dashboard and click on Comments I’ve Made. (I looooove their naming system!) Now in the middle of your screen will pop a big screen. Let’s dissect it shall we?

First, at the top is the name and a link to the blog where you made the original comment. (Brilliant I’m sure)

Following that is the comment that was left RIGHT BEFORE YOURS.

Second is your comment.

Third is the comment FOLLOWING YOURS.

If you scroll down, you’ll see more replies, possibly even one made to you! However – and this is a big however! – sometimes there have been MANY comments, and WP will list only the latest 10. So it’s entirely possible in your tirade to Donald Trump about his latest hairstyle attempt, that his reply to your comment is not listed here.

No fair, you howl! I want to know what the Donald said! Well, that’s one of the restrictions of WP you’re going to have to live with. Suck it up my friend and click on the link at the top and go find your comment.

And here’s a quickie for those of you not knowing how to FIND something on a page?

Click Ctrl and the letter F at the same time on your keyboard. A little box pops up at the bottom of your screen.

This is how it looks on mine in Firefox. From here you type in the phrase you’re looking for and then click Next, which will show the next instance of that word or phrase while scrolling DOWN, or previous which shows the next one scrolling UP or Highlight all, which is the world’s super coolest.

So while this may not find ALL the blogs you’ve posted on with your witticisms and jibes, it will highlight quite a few of them, and let you go back and post even more.

So, let’s talk about that hair, Donald.

=)

Happy trails!

  • Wow. I’ve just crammed another WP tidbit in my tired brain. Thanks, Woodie! Hope you’re settled in for the winter.

    • Woodie:

      I’d just settled down to take a long winter’s nap, when Carrie arose me with such a clatter I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter! She said my post was due, get my furry butt out of bed! But I’ll be snoozing it away again soon……*yawn*

  • I love Woodie and wordpress, thanks somuch for this insight.

  • I’m (still!!!) on the Blogger. Sigh. I know, I know, time to switch. Seriously, this is on my to-do list. And when I do, I will be bugging you for help until you throw your arms in the air and yell to leave you alone, haha!

    • Woodie:

      It’s not too hard to switch from Blogger Angela! Maybe I’ll do a tutorial on that in a few weeks…=)

  • You know, I’ve seen that little thing on my dashboard and never thought to investigate. I try to be intelligent and pithy in my comments, but then I think maybe I don’t really want to know how lame I was that day. You know, the day your brain just sizzles and snaps because you’ve used it a little toooooo much. But, since you’re so cute and furry and you woke up from your nap to show us this, I’ll check it out. Thanks Woodie!

    • Woodie:

      You’re welcome Tameri! I might have to get back in my Snuggli and snooooooooze a bit longer….

  • I don’t comment that often on Woodie’s posts, usually because I’m immediately at wordpress trying it out on my blog. But thanks Woodie and keep them coming. I went back in your archives today to try to remember how to back up my blog!!

  • Does this work if your blog is on wordpress.org rather than wordpress.com?

    • Woodie:

      Unfortunately, it doesn’t Marcy. But I’m on the lookout for a plugin for WP.org that might help! Stay tuned!

  • Another great one, Woodie! Say, might you answer this question? What is the META widget and should we keep them in our sidebars?? Totally unsolicited question, so no sweat if you’re busy stuffing those cute fuzzy cheeks!

    • Woodie:

      August..the META widget is a simple sidebar widget that lets you log in and log out a bit easier. I don’t keep mine in my sidebar, simply because I know the URL to log in to my site….or you can bookmark it if you’d rather…..it keeps the sidebar sleek and free of clutter…just like my burrow! Next time you’re on your log in page, book mark it, then you can go to your dashboard>appearances>widgets and drag that puppy back to the middle box…simple! =)

  • You rock, Woodie. I hate clutter, so off to widget drag I go… 🙂 Thanks a million!
