The New FT "Like" "button"

FUNCTION

When you click on the "Like" button, it registers the handle of the user liking the post in a horizontal box immediately below the "Like" button. "Liking" a post also optionally sends a notification to the post owner. "Like" notifications appear in Your Control Panel in My FlyerTalk.

To turn the notification function on or off, look in Your Control Panel and Settings & Options under Messaging & Notification:

Likes Notifications:
  • Enable Likes Notifications
  • Disable Likes Notifications
NOTE: Editing a post causes the "Likes" to disappear for a short period of time. They are restored after that pause.

SUGGESTIONS & RECOMMENDATIONS

Please make suggestions or recommendations unrelated to technical issues in the thread Like button (Suggestion FT add Like button) [live 9 August] (link) in The Suggestion Box forum.

Old thread, but seems like the best place to ask...
I notice recently sometimes my LIKE button doesn't work. I click it - nothing happens.

At first I thought it was an iPad issue, but same happens on my desktop.
Then I thought maybe not allowed to click too many LIKES in a row -- but it's not that because sometimes it doesn't work when I haven't liked anything else in days.
Then I thought some posters can opt out -- but it's not that either, because I just tried to LIKE a post from someone who has other LIKES.

I noticed someone on the UA forum commenting on this: "I tried to LIKE your comment but it didn't work for some reason"

It seems completely random. Any other reports of this?
