The unfollow/gold star feature isn't working for me

That about says it. Anybody else having a problem? I've gotten rather attached to this little guy/gal :)

  1. Interesting...I'm having an issue too. When I click on the yellow star, it doesn't turn gray as it did previously.

      Well, I'm guessing it's not just the two of us so the kids upstairs will take a look at it I'm sure.

    2. Clicking to unfollow a thread on my profile page isn't working, but if I open the thread and click to unfollow THERE, it turns gray and goes away.

        Thanks. That worked. I can live with it. Just so happy to have the feature :)

      2. Thanks for reporting this issue. I'm seeing it too, and we'll look into it!

        1. for me, yellow star works. follow/unfollow does not.

            Do you mean when you're on your profile page or when you actually 'at' the thread?

              there isn't a yellow "follow this thread" star feature on one's own profile page, but only on discussion threads.

              you can only "follow" or unfollow a fellow hound by clicking on that toggle on their profile page.

              i just now commented on the newish potluck thread on home cooking board just to see what happened to the star, without me touching the button itself. by commenting alone, the star is highlighted. THIS MAKES ME THINK that NOW we can stop seeing threads pop up that we commented on in the past, but are tired of seeing! (WHICH IS A BIG YAY, if that is the intent).

              1. re: alkapal

                I was referring to the unfollow aspect not the follow. And, yeah, I SO love this. My fave 'new' feature :)

          2. Ok,for me, yellow star works and follow/unfollow does too as long as I fully open the thread it's related to.

            When I am on my own profile page, none of the features that should work, are.

              Same experience with my profile page, this is for 3-4 days now.
