Problem to thank...

There are plenty of thankworthy posts - but I seem to have a problem with it on my windows machine.

1. I run windows 7 and IE 9.
2. "Thanks" button is visible and I can click it. However, it usually gets "stuck" and there is no thanks visible under the post.
3. If I click it repeatedly, it eventually will work on the 3rd or fourth attempt.

Any idea? known bug? It seems to work fine on my older Mac, firefox as well as Safari...

Re: Problem to thank...

It takes a while sometimes for the thank to show up, would refreshing the page work better instead of thanking multiple times?

Well, the last 3300 thanks I gave worked fine... it seems to be lagging more now and I wonder if this is an IE9 issue or not.

I think it is because you are too cheap with your thanks.. Look at your received vs given 2.5:1 ....

Re: Problem to thank...

I think I've fixed the problem. You can try it out now by clicking "Thanks" on this post.

(Intermittently, I experience the same problem, using IE8. Yeah, we're bang up to date, here.)

That quota would look differently if the thanks button worked correctly on my side... I just tried it again on your post and it still doesn't work: It is not a timing issue as I waited long - I simply need to click multiple times till it eventually work. On Mr 22 yards, I clicked the button and it disappeared - but no thanks appeared.

That's cause you are new here - thanking and groaning is a, er, privilege... you will see it after a couple more posts.

Try the button a little further to the right. It's much friendlier.

That button on the right is the damn reason I start the thread... look: I pressed it on your post above - buttons disappear, but no thanks arrives:

Yes, it is. Now that Treverus has made his point, I have this feeling that if we ask nicely, he'll remove that groan.

Please, nicely, Trev, could you remove that groan you gave Village Idiot? (He's just an idiot, after all.)

I'd love to - but I clicked "remove groan", the thanks and groan buttons reappear - but the groan stays... (Edit: some five tries later did it eventually work...)

Awwwww ... you're a big softie at heart, Trev ...

I blame the disappearing/non-functional buttons on some evil Far Eastern population-controlling plot.

Re: Problem to thank...

I'm not sure if this is an IE9 issue or not, but it sounds like you might be having a problem because you're looking at cached pages instead of retrieving the latest ones from the server.

I'm still using IE8, but I'm sure there's a similar option in IE9 to force a fresh download of a page everytime you visit -- I used to have similar problems with another forum I visited, where I couldn't see the latest posts on a thread because an earlier, cached copy was being loaded instead.



You might try changing this setting and seeing if it makes any difference.

Re: Problem to thank...

I had multiple problems using IE9, the most prevalent being extremely slow loading and reaction times.

I finally gave up, gave in (and gave thanks ) and switched to Google Chrome. Problems went away immediately.
