You can give likes using the plain Tapatalk app rather than the SMF one - but not always, which is odd

I am like Dee, I turned off the notifications for likes right after I started to post quite a bit. Now all I get is quotes and PM's.

Gent -- I use Tapatalk occasionally when I'm on my Kindle Fire, but haven't seen that I could "like" posts. Sometimes apps work a little differently on a kindle than on other mobile devices. Or maybe I'm just oblivious .. won't be the first time, as DH can tell you.

KC -- So maybe do you remember where you changed this in the account settings? If so, would you take pity on me and tell me where to look?

This took me few moments to find again.

Click on My Account
Choose Edit Forum Options
At the bottom there are several options.


This is not accessible from the Control Panel

It's tricky, but here is how to find it: click on the 'My Account' icon at the top of the page, then scroll down to 'Control Panel' and click on 'Edit Forum Options'. A page will then pop up that will let you edit your user options. Scroll all the way down that page to where it says, 'Profile Options'. The 6th option down will let you choose whether you want to be notified when your posts are liked or not. If you choose to edit anything, just click on the 'Submit' button at the bottom of the page when done.

Edited to add: Oh, dash it all! Someone beat me to it again! lol

I had looked at the "Edit options" page via the Control Panel several times and obviously didn't see the settings that I was looking for. It's really confusing that there are two forms that look quite similar at the top, but are really quite different overall.

Anyways, thank you, KC and IL, for the help! You set me straight.

Yep, I did! I remember turning it off some time ago (along with notifications such as when someone includes my name in a post, etc.) because it was really annoying. Maybe I'll feel differently about it now, so I'm giving it a fresh try.

Well, I know all of you completely adore me so I have no need to see when you like my comments - because I know all of you do!

WooHoo! The Likes notifications are working properly again!

Now I can see which of my posts were liked and who liked them!
