Notifications

Stuff happens all the time on WordPress.com. You’re blogging, commenting, liking, and following like never before. Every hour a record is broken and someone’s day is made. We’ve always known about your love affair with stats. We like watching numbers grow, too. And we also like to see the events that the numbers represent.

We think of Notifications as a magnifier for Stats: you can zoom in to see exactly who did what and then connect with them.

Admin Bar

You can view your Notifications while on any WordPress.com site directly from the Admin Bar.

You can also view your notifications via the Notifications tab on the WordPress.com homepage.

Filters

Use filters to only view one particular type of notification. “All” will show every type of notification, and “Unread” will display notifications you haven’t clicked on yet. Additionally, you can filter notifications by type — Comments, Follows, and Likes.

Note: only the latest 100 notifications will be displayed.
