Whilst I was absent, they changed the WordPress Reader. Now if you click on the title or image of a notification in the Reader, you open a pop-up window, which I personally am not a fan of.
So here’s a tip. To go directly to the blog page from the Reader, click the time stamp on the bottom left of the Reader notice, or click on the word count for the same effect. I hope this helps others who may dislike pop-up windows and prefer to read the actual post.
