View Full Version : How do I give a post a like?

07-21-2015, 06:14 AM
So the new site format looks really slick on my Android tablet. The only thing is that I don't see a way to "like" a post. How do I do this with the new format? Am I overlooking something?

Yours changed? Mine is still the same.

Mine's the same on my Android phone too and fwiw I NEVER was able to figure out how to "like" a post...

...secret handshake?

But maybe the rollout hasn't happened yet?

It hasn't changed for me yet. I view the forums on a PC and/or laptop running GNU/Linux and use a Firefox fork or Dillo or Lynx.

On another social networking site I frequent that doesn't have likes, we just say "+1 @yourusername" in a new post.

My iPad died a horrible death this weekend. This is the first time I am using Chrome and the Android tablet to access SHS, so maybe that's what's going on. Will do +1, and thanks Iron Ethel Flint (love that handle BTW).

You dont have a little spot above reply in the lower right to like?

So, if you run desktop Safari and have the Develop menu enabled, you can emulate an Android tablet by setting a custom user agent string: Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; <Android Version>; <Build Tag etc.>) AppleWebKit/<WebKit Rev>(KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/<Chrome Rev> Safari/<WebKit Rev>

I can confirm that there isn't a like button on posts when the page loads with that user agent.
