When you click to like a post, a confirmation request pops up. Is this new?

Did you disable javascript?

I don't have a popup either, but getting new pages/windows instead of the direct functionality is a typical sign of disabled JS.

This confirmation pop up:

I don't get that upon either liking or removing my like from a post. Perhaps there's a setting somewhere that you have turned on/off?

@Greg Bernhardt - this happened on a post I wanted to "like" by @harborsparrow

MAybe there are some options local to the person getting the like. AFAIK I have changed nothing. ...right...o0)

Just tried it on the above post. Awarding a Haha changes the Like button to Haha. Clicking it again removes the awarded Haha, equivalent activity awarding a Like.

There used to be a button called Remove Like, or something similiar.

Curiouser nad curiouser!

I just got a "normal" response from a like to @Tom.G 's post above
@harborsparrow has been around a long time, it is possible that this was a feature in a previous version of VBforums, which is now our Xenforo.

@Greg Bernhardt - this means the response is local to a user. Somehow.

Does it still happen elsewhere now?
A difference by user would be really odd. In particular, I can like a post by harborsparrow without needing confirmation.

huh I'm stumped on this one!
I get it too, must be a super rare bug.
Since it's so rare, we will forget about it. Please let us know when that 'stump' changes to 'stomp'. :oldbiggrin:

Post 3 to 5 all have that problem. Something starts the problem in post 3.
Post 3 has some java code that *should* not influence anything... but maybe something goes wrong there?

Let's test it here. I need someone else to test it or reply to it however, as I can't "like" my own posts.

Edit: Here is the code that breaks things, probably because of ill-formed quotation marks:
[CODE lang="java" highlight=""15-17,25,""]public[/CODE]

If I include this then saving an edit doesn't work properly and replying to the thread is difficult as well (see the following post). If I don't include it everything is fine.

Clicking on Like, I got the 'Confirm' popup. Then when it came back to the thread the Reply window (box) was missing. I clicked on 'Post reply' btn., got the usual Empty error msg., dismissed it, which brought the Reply window back.

Thanks. I found the bad code using your post as additional test case, see my edit above.
