@Sally Stitts - just click the "Like" at the top of someone's post. You have now liked that post and it will now say "Unlike" but if you reload the page, you'll see that a number has appeared (or increased.)

Some browsers have persistent cache settings that don't work well with this site sometimes. I often have the same issue.

Thanks, keyplyr.

I do not see a "Like" button anywhere.
I only see "Like Votes". I just clicked ONCE on yours, and it immediately switched to "Unlike Votes: 1". The 1 is in a blue box,
which would indicate to me that I had just made an "Unlike Vote". Where am I going wrong?

Could my FF be screwed up? I always run the latest- right now Firefox 56.0.

Thanks again.

There is no actual "button" only the word "Like"

So you did this correctly (and thanks for the vote)

After you vote (like) then the "Unlike" will display in case you liked a post by mistake, or just changed your mind, and now wish to remove your vote.

I agree it's a bit ambiguous.

Keyplyr's got it. One you hit the "like" on a post you can't "like" it again, you can only "unlike" it if it's an error.
