    I am currently using the the included UiSortableList to resort some things on the frontend/ It works beautifully on desktop, but try as i might, I cannot get it to work on mobile. stackoverflow suggests jQuery Touch Punch which I see is included. Is there something I'm missing? Should UiSortableList work on mobile? None of the various places in ACP that use this (like smilies) works either though I though all signs point to Touch Punch being pretty plug and play?

    Sorry to bother you Alexander Ebert but I wanted to ask that you also consider moving the mobile ellipsis menu down if reactions will still be contained in it. A lot of users have complained about long posts where they have to scroll all the way up on mobile to leave a reaction. You may already be thinking about this, but wanted to add that since we've been getting a lot of input on this particular issue. I'd move the ellipsis down, but then you can't always edit the post since that brings up another menu that only appears where it "thinks" the ellipsis menu should be. Thanks!

    Thank you for the quick response! I had no idea it would change if we only have one.

    The admin 6theory would like to keep the expanded reactions if possible, but this is an option if push comes to shove. The most urgent concern he has is the three clicks necessary on mobile, because that is where we receive the most complaints. He think users might accept it more readily if it was cut down to two clicks, mirroring the desktop experience.

    Ideal is still to have visible reactions of every post that users can just click and move on. They do like the expanded reactions, it's the multiple clicks necessary that bothers them.


    I know there was a lot of demand for the new Reaction system, but the users of the forum I help run are used the like button. We were on an old Xenforo instance before and like was one click very easy for them. Now, it requires two clicks on desktop and three on mobile. I've been trying to study how it works and initially though I could just make the menu always visible, but I realize now that the reactions menu is dynamic and not on every post.

    I know it has been said that we cannot go back to the old like system (though I think the code is there). I don't know how it even worked though since we never used to old version.

    Options I have been considering:

    - Including a static always visible reaction menu per post that has both post id and can send the required events (will put in template)

    - Figuring out if I can somehow call the old Like code

    - Reusing the reaction button already on each post and having it just send the thumb up reaction (would lose other reactions)

    I am new to Woltlabs, as you can tell and would be willing to try coding out a plugin, but I am not at the level yet. Any pointers that could help with this?

    Also please let me know if there is a better section to post in and thank you so much for any and all help. Really appreciated!

    Hello, I am tech for a forum that runs on Woltlab Suite 5.3. I would ask in the customer support forum, but it says I do not have the proper license and I don't see where I can input that. The users of the forum are coming from a like system and really dislike that you have to click into the reaction menu to access them. I would like to make them available on each post, but they are currently in a menu dynamically generated per click, so I can't just make it visible by default. I'm also pretty sure the click sets the post id to be reacted to, so there's that.

    I'm trying use the DevTools logging outlined in the Javascript API to see the events being logged in hopes that I can duplicate them for a set of buttons I'd place statically on each post, but it's not working - it tells me DevTools is not defined. I am unsure of where to go from here and am asking in hopes of being pointed in the right direction. Thank you very much!
