    How do you like a post? I used to do it, but now that the site is updated, I forget how. I see the bar at the bottom of the post that shows who has liked it, but there is no like button. I usually use my iPhone, if that makes a difference.

    Your screen should show three rectangular black boxes in the post you like, marked

    Like , Quote and Reply . It seems these don't appear on your device.

    A capture of this thread so far; as Hardcoaler said, at the lower right of each post are buttons to Like, Quote and Reply to specific posts.

    Turn your phone to landscape, as the mobile version in normal mode cuts those out.

    I logged on to my Android, and I don't think it can be done. If you hold your finger on the text of a post long enough to highlight it, it'll give you quote and reply buttons. But if there's a way to get a like button on a phone, I didn't find it.

    I guess you have to hate all posts when you see them on your phone. Maybe you can consider them meh, but that's it. If you really do like them, I guess you have to like them enough to go find a computer.

    I spoke too soon. It seems Manitoba is smarter than me. On mine, you like it by holding the post number, which as he says, only appears in landscape orientation.

    It simplifies the display in the vertical position.

    I'm using a tablet now, and I can see the bars at the bottom. Even when I turned the phone, they didn't appear, and pressing the post number got me a link. Holding the number got the iPhone "open, save to reading list, etc." I guess I should like posts here, not on my phone. Thanks guys.

    My Android is also funky about this. When held with the screen length vertical, nothing shows. But if rotated horizontal, the buttons then show up, although a bit odd positioned.

    I've tried both horizontal and vertical, yet the like button still does not show on my Android phone. Really frustrating, because I typically use my mobiles. What else am I missing?


    PS. The "report" button shows in both modes, so I guess I'll start to report posts...for being awesome! J/k

    Ok this is weird, I "figured" it out...
    If I press the mobile screen directly below the "report" button I can like the post. But the button doesn't show although it exists in that spot.

    I have a ghost button. Great.

    Yeah. Android is far from perfect. But in my instance, any idea of paying the price of a current I-phone is not appealing. So I just drift along as is....

    I see the buttons fine on my Android, using the FireFox beta, buttons only show in landscape mode.

    Seems to be a function of the resolution of the screen, more pixels horizontally...

    I'd try different browsers on your phone, Dolphin is also good.

    I have a ZTE mobile phone, when I rotate the phone horizontally the like button shows up but not vertical.
