Hi KLEE957,

The blogs won't show up as already read, so that is expected behavior. You will still be awarded points, but the points button may not change. I hope this helps!

Still not showing up.. only on the blogs. All others articles show points earned and when.

I wasn't able to replicate that in my account or yours, SOAPSANDROPES. I read an article, earned the points, and clicked the return to article button before going to the points section to verify that they were awarded. You might want to try clearing your browser's cache and cookies to see if that resolves it for you.

I have had an issue with points for blogs and articles. I read the post then click the get points button. I then only get points if I click on the go to my spark points button. If I click the return to article button it is like I never read the article.

On that article the button only shows on the 11th slide. When you make a comment, the page refreshes so you are back on the first slide. If you advance to the 11th slide, you should see the button.

i just read the article about 10 uses for avocado and left a comment (which btw posted twice, why i don't know) before hitting the 'get my points' button. after posting the comment the button disappeared so I missed the chance.. not worried about the points - just noting the problem.. and i see i am not alone :-)

For a few months now, the Blog doesn't display that I've already earned points for reading. When I try to claim the points, it tells me that I've already earned points. Very annoying.. It USED to display.

Hi Bossonbabe,

I wasn't able to replicate that issue in your account (you will now see 5 additional points for reading SP content added to your points). Can you give me the web address of an article you are having trouble with so I can look into it further?


EXCELDREAM,
The Health News articles show under a different section of points (not under the general "read sparkpeople content" section). Is it all health news articles you are having trouble with, or one in particular?

DIANE7786,
Is it possible that some of the articles you are reading are adding to a different section of the points? The example above is that the health news articles still have their own section. I

Yesterday I thought I understood the changes and posted the link below on another thread. Today it's not working. I read a few things on the new page. One worked for five points. Others said I earned points but they didn't show on the Points page. I also received a message stating I had earned the maximum points for the day when I only had 5 of 25. Some articles I read didn't show I'd previously read them until I clicked for points. Here's the link. If anyone figures this out, please share!

After posting this I decided to try Read SparkPeople Content again. It's frustrating that there's no way to tell if I've already read the article. When I found some I hadn't read I received my 5 points each with no problem. I still don't know why it didn't work earlier today.

I'm having the same problem with Health News, but not usually with other articles. It's puzzling.

Since the website has been revamped I've had problems getting points for articles read. Doesn't matter whether I access them from my start page or from the sparkpoints menu. I click on get your sparkpoints but I'm not getting them. I've cleared my cache & cookies which fixed the wacky display problems on my start page but hasn't fixed the points problem. Any ideas? Thanks.
