Undoing old likes looks possible but isn't


(Erlend Sogge Heggen) #1

It’s a minor thing, but it’d be better to throw an error message or at the very least not make the heart disappear when users attempt to undo a like that’s too old to be undone.

Noticed a possibly related bug while at it.

Reproduction steps:

  1. Like a post via the Heart
  2. Undo the like via the “Undo like”.
  3. Heart remains colored.

Same problem other way around.

  1. Like a post via “Like it too”
  2. Heart remains unchanged.

Wups my bad. Mods feel free to merge.

I think this is a minor bug, we have an opportunity here to teach people about the liking rules.

I think a mouse hover here would be fantastic… “User actions cannot be undone after x minutes”

(says me after I just spent 5 minutes in a forum I manage wondering why I couldn’t undo a like from an hour ago)

Way too inside baseball to show all the time. Even as a tooltip.
