Enabling comments and likes for externally hosted sites

  1. Hi,

    I'm hoping you can help. I've looked around and haven't been able to find a solution. I'm running WP on an external site -

    But in the WP app, subscribers are not given a Comment / Like option in the reader. Is this because it's self hosted or is there a way to enable that?

    I noticed on the xmlrpc.php page it says:

    "XML-RPC server accepts POST requests only."

    Is that related? Is there a way to fix that? Or is this purely a case of an unavailable feature for externally hosted Wordpress sites?

    Shout if there's other info you need - and thanks in advance!

  2. Hi Jason,

    The XML-RPC page should say that - so that's just fine! And your initial guess is correct - only blogs can be commented on/liked from the Reader.

    I asked my colleagues on our Jetpack team about this, and have now created a Github issue you can follow to track the progress on this request.


  3. Thanks a lot! Appreciate the response!

    Sounds like a great feature for an eventual update :-D
