Missing "Like" option.
« on: January 12, 2020, 11:20:58 PM »
Using Chrome I no longer seem to have the option to "Like" someone's post although the option to "Quote" from a post is still there in the dropdown menu that you get on posts when you are signed in. I wondered if the user interface had changed in my absence or I had misremembered it.

I just tried signing in to the site using Firefox instead, and the "Like" option is right there where it should be. It seems there is a bug in Chrome which is interfering with it. I'm using the latest versions of both browsers on the latest version of MacOS. Has anyone else noticed a problem like this?

I use Chrome (in Windows) and successfully "Liked" your post from the drop-down menu.

I took a closer look using the Javascript debugger. It's a problem with the way that Javascript widgets from addthis.com are being accessed. They are being requested as .php files instead of .js files which conflicts with the MIME type. In Firefox, the Javascript console displays a warning that it is loading the file anyway, but in Chrome which is more secure to the point of paranoia (except where your privacy is concerned, thanks Google), it just says nuh-uh.

This could either be a bug in the scripts being supplied by addthis.com or it could be a bug in PHP or its configuration, or neither. Ladies and gentlemen, place your bets.

Edit: I liked everyone's posts using Firefox.

Edit2: Back in Chrome again, there is now an Unlike option on the posts that I just Liked, but there is still no Like option anywhere.

Infurl,

I seem to recall having this same or very similar issue some years back and while it escapes me as to the crux of the problem, I am now logged in using Chrome (which I never use) and have the option to UNLIKE any posts to which I have previously LIKED and I am also able to add a LIKE to any post to which I have yet LIKED.

I do have my A/V "anti-tracker" enabled as well as Start Page but nothing out of the ordinary otherwise.

I was hoping Freddy will weigh-in on this as he was able to figure it out the last time this happened (I think).

I know people who would PAY to have that option for FACEBOOK when everyone is forever telling everyone to LIKE, COMMENT & SUBSCRIBE!
They should  consider installing an UNLIKE Button!! (give it a rest people!! You know who you are...it was a JOKE!!)...
In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

Is this still an issue?

I am using Chrome and the likes are working okay. Is Chrome up to date, are you running any ad blockers or something like that?

Firefox seems fine.
There exist some rules interwoven within this world. As much as it is a blessing, so much it is a curse.

Thanks Freddy, you nailed it. I've disabled my ad blocker for this site. I've been using an ad blocker for so long I didn't even know you had ads here.

No problem  O0

I don't think we have any ads now, I used to block them for Trusty Members anyway. From looking in the Chrome console it looks like they are associated with the AddThis sharing buttons. You did mention that might be the problem. I don't see anything appearing anywhere though.

The sharing buttons are quite useful so if you are good to go then I will leave this for now. Maybe in the future I will write some code for our own sharing buttons.
