The curse of the missing Like button
Liam Dawe 9 Apr, 2020
Hello everyone!

One feature we have, is the ability to "Like" an article and a comment/forum post. It's entirely local to our website, built by us.

Sadly, a few privacy plugins have gone a bit militant and started blocking it based on the CSS class name. We've already spoken to Adblock Plus about the issue, they're likely not the only one affected as any using the same lists will be.

To try and get around it a little, we've begun more generic naming for it in our CSS to try and avoid it.

it happens also with Ublock Origin, I'm using palemoon browser which uses the old extensions API, maybe it's fixed in a newer webextension version.

(update: now it's seems fixed, thanks)

Fixed for me now also, but I never had any ad blocker! Just the tracking protection in SeaMonkey (similar to Firefox).

Just wanted to say that i don't have any issues with it..then noticed that i have ublock disabled for this page :)

I might be using some bad list because the issue is still there on my side.
I'm using uBlock Origin and I have to deactivate the third option (the eye) to be able to see the Like button.

There should be zero problems disabling any privacy plugins from GOL :), we have no external services. Even YouTube videos in articles you need to have manually accepted to see them.

Yeah I know, it's not a big deal. If I found the issue I'll tell you here.

OK so, since today I don't have the Like button anymore, even if I disable completely uBlock Origin.

Sorry, was a duff bit of JS code that caused it. Fixed.
