Clicking on names in a thread

On my iphone, when I click on a name to see which post another post is referring to, nothing happens. Is this new or is it just me?

  1. This just started happening to me yesterday. A click on the name of the person to whom the poster is responding does nothing. I'm not on a phone, on a laptop, using chrome.

      You are correct, I just tested it on my i-phone and it did now work. To be clear we are talking about the name in the upper right hand corner of someone's post, which indicates who they are responding to, correct? If so, it's not working. The page just "blinks" but it doesn't take you to the source post.

        Yes. I click on my name in the corner of your post and nothing happens, when it should bring me to my post.

          I'm finding it a bit harder to get the name to turn to a name with an underline, indicating it's an active link. I have to hover around the middle to top of the outlined box to get the underline, but clicking on when the underline shows up does move me to the post.

          That's exactly what I'm talking about.

              Servorg, I would suggest you really caress the name, you have to spend your time warming up to it first, you can't just go in for the click. I've found there seems to be a "sweet" spot you have to learn to find, it's not easy at first but once you get the hang of it you will be clicking away in now time. (seriously on a PC it is difficult to find the exact clickable spot, but I do think it's there)

                Now it does seem to respond if I very gently place my cursor on the upper horizontal line of the box around the name. It helps to maintain eye contact.

                1. re: jrvedivici

                  I nibbled at it every so gently. I twirled my cursor around, and around, just as close as I could without hitting it, and finally right on top of it, both clockwise and counter clockwise. I put my vibrating cursor right over the top and let it go on "motorboat" mode. Still that damn button just sat there and said "Not feeling it big boy." Finally I turned over and went to sleep. Exhausted!

              2. This looks to be the unintended casualty of some unrelated fixes we released yesterday. We have an eye on the cause and are looking into it. Thank you for the report, and our sincere apologies for the inconvenience.
