So, I mentioned yesterday that I’m not getting notifications of comments. I looked into it for a bit yesterday but had other things to do. This morning I woke up and started obsessing on it. I took a peek at all my settings, I set up a test account and posted comments, I googled it, searched on WordPress, and even posted a support ticket to my host. Nada.
But then I read on my host’s status page that there was a problem with forwards to Gmail and as of November 29, (which happens to be the last day I received a comment notification) there have been no updates stating the issue is resolved.
As a workaround, I changed all email settings with WordPress to go to a yahoo email address, and walla! I can receive comment notifications. So it’s a Gmail issue… or it’s an issue with my host and Gmail. Either way, it’s annoying and frustrating. But at least I have a temporary fix for now.
For anyone who I missed replying to because I did not receive a notification, my apologies.
UPDATE: Slowly… very very slowly, two days worth of comment notifications seem to be arriving. So strange…
