Anyone having trouble accessing their Reader today?

Just wanting to ask if anyone is having trouble accessing their Reader at the moment? I try to access it from my dashboard and it keeps saying is set to private and I need to ask the owner for permission…but it’s from my dashboard and I’m logged in.

So I’m wondering if there is a glitch right now in WP and if so if others have experienced it?

Anyone else having this problem…and if not, have you ever, or do you have any advice as to how to resolve this?

Any help will be most appreciated!

  1. Reblogged this on Year 'Round Thanksgiving Project and commented:
    I haven’t had trouble, but this is the second blog I’ve seen about this.

    • Thanks, that’s interesting and a bit hopeful…it might be a glich that occurs sometimes. It’s very odd…when was the other blog post, today or recently? Oh, and thanks so much for replying!! 🙂

      • The other blog post was minutes before I got notification of yours. And now I’m getting the same thing 😦 It must be a WordPress glitch

      • Fingers crossed they fix it soon – again, I so appreciate you responding so quickly…it is a relief in a way to hear it is more widespread – not that I wish difficulties on others but at least it means it’s unlikely to be something stupid I’ve done in my settings inadvertently or something 🙂 …..hopefully it will be resolved in WP soon.

      • I’m good again. So maybe mine was a sympathy glitch for you. Hope it is corrected soon for you. Good luck

    Hi Helen

    I cant get into my reader or my stats page they say marked as private by owner and as I am logged in as myself, I need to log in as someone else…..I’m guessing glitch yes!

    The forums are full of complaints so I think it is an ongoing issue. Hopefully things will be repaired soon. 😉

  4. Renard Moreau says:

    [ Sighs ] It happened to me a moment ago. Things appear to be back to normal.

  5. Mine was like that and it just came back about a minute ago. Maybe they’re doing some maintenance on the servers.

  6. Geo Sans says:

    just starting happening to me


  7. Geo Sans says:

    now it is working again

  8. stevehi says:

    I have this same problem two or three times a week .

    • So it obviously has been happening a bit of late? perhaps they are doing work on the server and that’s what happens when you try to access at that time?

      • stevehi says:

        I figured that maybe there was a lot of traffic , people posting a lot . I just do something else . Good night ….

  9. David M. Green says:

    The same happened to me but now its working like its supposed to. 🙂

  10. i know they are working on a new dashboard, i dont know if that is the issue or not. you wouldnt be using the test “new” dashboard tho, if you did not click it to try it out. and yes, as someone noted when something like this happens, check the forums. if you dont see questions on it, and info, then ask there too. glad it’s fixed. aloha.

    for what it is worth I just pulled my Reader up with no issues, but I do have another curiosity lol Yahoo wont let me delete anything from Spam or Trash, or Empty either lol. I have like 300 emails sitting in Trash

    • computers are odd….hope your issue resolves itself quickly…maybe yahoo is doing maintenance too 🙂

      • purple says:

        LOL actually I tried right after I left my comment and everything is working now 🙂 thanks for your continued encouragement and support on my blog. I hope I return the kindness adequately, 🙂

      • Glad it’s working now for you too! And you are most welcome for support – I love your blog, so it’s easy to support, and you most certainly return the favour my friend!! 🙂

  12. Glynis says:

    Thought it was just my server…glad to know others are having the same problems…sorry

  13. greenembers says:

    Yup, happened to me too. It sucked, so now I am going and catching up.

  14. Debaroon says:

    No Helen mine is working fine..just opened reader….n wordpress often goes crazy n hangs

  15. jrosenberry1 says:

    I haven’t had the problem today …. but there’s no telling what WP will do in an hour’s time! Hang in there. I feel the pain …. these reader glitches are AWFUL.

    • Yes, it did feel very strange. I’m sort of used to my reader freezing sometimes, but being locked out of your own reader does feel very odd, and not particularly nice. 🙂 Still glad to hear it hasn’t vexed you. 🙂

      • jrosenberry1 says:

        Well, I have been vexed, that’s for sure … but not today, thankfully! Sometimes it just sort of *blanks* on me. So I go through the rigamarole of deleting history and clearing out the caches .. etc. … oh well. Can’t complain, right? o.O

  16. My reader isn’t working well either, and wordpress keeps logging me off! Grrr…

  17. ioniamartin says:

    I certainly hope tomorrow isn’t crap on WordPress like today was. I had everything from double comments to missing responses to no reader to UGGGGHHH. In some ways I think i was lucky to be away from the computer!

  18. Aka Teraka says:

    Never seen this. Hope it’s alright now.

  19. Not sure why you’re just seeing it recently Helen. Happens to me frequently – that or it doesn’t show any feeds. I guess I just choose to go through my reader at the worst possible chance since some people have never seen it, LOL.

    • Wow…perhaps I’ve been lucky up till now…still if it happens on and off to all of us at least it doesn’t mean it’s someting any one individual has done…I initially thought I’d done something in my dashboard or something that had set it off!! 🙂

  20. Chatty Owl says:

    Yes, reader was playing up on me too.

  21. TheGirl says:

    I’ve just been having problems liking posts in the reader. After the page refreshes, the likes disappear. Like I never “liked” them…..

  22. Jack Flacco says:

    I’ve been having trouble with wordpress since last week. Weird things like slow loads of wordpress sites, reader not loading properly, and now my “likes” are not registering properly. So, I click on the Like button but nothing happens. I’ve also changed browsers and disabled extensions. Maybe they’re going through an upgrade.
