Support » Plugin: Jetpack - WP Security, Backup, Speed, & Growth » Comments on Admin Bar show no results

  • Resolved Pete Hahn


    While logged in as the administrator there is a toolbar at the top of the site. I understand this is refereed to as the “Admin Bar”. This admin bar contains an icon showing a list of comments. It appears just to the left of my login name. When I click on the comment icon it is supposed to display a list of comments and provides tools for responding to those comments. Some time in the last several weeks this has stopped working. When I click the icon the panel opens but no comments display.

    Here is a link to a screenshot showing the issue:

    I know this feature is provided by Jetpack plugin because when I deactivate Jetpack the comments icon is removed from the admin bar. When I reactivate the Jetpack plugin the icon reappears but the contents is still blank. It’s always worked in the past and just recently it stopped working.

    Hello @dryheat3

    Hi Michelle, thanks for your prompt response.

    Here is the website URL:

    However the issue is only present when I am logged in as the site admin. So I’m not sure what you will be able to glean from the website itself without having an admin user account to log into.

    I do have a staging site. So if you require an admin account to determine the cause just let me know and I can setup a new admin user on the staging site which you can use to investigate.

    Hey there,

    The Jetpack connection for your site is good and the problem should be there.

    Can you please try to disconnect and reconnect Jetpack? Sometimes normal disconnection and reconnection solved most of the connection issues.

    You can follow these instructions to do that:

    1. Go to the Jetpack menu in your WP Admin dashboard
    2. Scroll down to find the Connections area.
    3. Click Manage site connection.
    4. Click Disconnect and follow the prompts to complete the disconnection process.
    5. Click the Set Up Jetpack button to connect your site to again.

    If it is not working, you can try to reinstall the Jetpack plugin and then connect it with your account. This handy guide explains the full process in more detail.

    Let me know how it went!

    I had previously deactivated and reactivated the Jetpack plugin while attempting to fix the issue on my own. And that process included the steps you described. However at your recommendation I performed the steps you listed to disconnect and reconnect my site to Jetpack. The issue remains unresolved.

    Let me know if you have any other steps to try out.
