Site gremlins have stolen the "like" button

Recommended Posts

Not sure what's happening with the "like" button...

I'm taking part in the monthly Painters Challenge and I noticed the other day that all the reactions to people's entries have disappeared....this is a bit of a bind as we are all constantly posting but I can no longer see who I have left "likes" for....despite receiving notifications that someone has reacted to a post neither can I actually see reaction to my own entries...if I click on the "like" button icon  it will reveal who has reacted to other people's post but the minute I change page it all disappears again

Can someone please chase down the gremlins and restore it to good health please ?

@Thottbot     .......err.....no they haven't because it still has the same issues i.e. I can't see my reaction to other posts nor other people's reaction to mine....AND....if I leave a "like" and navigate away from the page when I go back there the reaction is no longer there

I can see the likes in everybody's posts... except those I get. I see the notification that somebody like my post but then I can see that in the post itself.

I just tried again...left a "like" for a post then navigated to a different page...when I returned the "like" had disappeared....whereas Thottbot has reacted to my post here and that I can see...so truly weird...but of all the notifications I have received over the last week that is the only one I can see

Hmm...interesting.....maybe it's a device problem...I am using an iPad 

@Chou reported the same problem as me earlier so there is definitely a glitch...and it's definitely spoiling my enjoyment of the Painters Challenge

Still not fixed - just left a "like" then refreshed the page and it had disappeared...is anyone going to fix this ?...because it's making the interactive aspect of this forum non existent

I have no idea what the problem might be. But you are right, likes do just seem to disappear. It might be because I don't spend so much time on the painting threads that I hadn't noticed the lack of likes. (Discussions make more  use of agree and disagree which are still there). 

I think this is possibly something to do with board architecture, which is well beyond my understanding.  @Ratty was doing something with Smilies recently. Hopefully this will bring him here to look:Rat:

Yeah. I've looked into it and can't find what is causing it. Likes are not a seperate application, so something is broke somewhere, and I have no clue what it is.

It may be an issue with the Theme, but it's broken on all 3 and both the Theme and the main forum have been recently updated to the latest version.

Could it be a device issue ?  When I started this thread it was not just because the like button stopped working but also because it had removed likes going back at least two weeks

I don't think I've ever used any of it on my phone. Are you on your phone? I'm just computer/Chrome.

Also, it's worth noting that a few weeks back the Like button did seem to break, which is why I ended up adding the Teddy icon (since it seems to have broken). It's possible that's when the issue started, but I'm not sure why it would be ongoing.

Am using iPad with Safari...a few weeks ago is when all the previous likes disappeared but since then I have noticed, as have others, that if I leave a like and navigate to another page when I go back the like has disappeared

It'll be one of your site wizards who'll sort it hopefully...way beyond anything I understand but am glad you guys are taking a look at it...the Painters Challenge Crew will be delighted to get it back
