Can't unlike posts that I "liked" by accident


I.e. just clicked the “number” to see which other people “liked” certain posts but it makes the heart pink instead and I can’t turn it back to grey. Can someone help?


That’s intentional, isn’t it? Much like editing comments, there’s a timeout for how long before you can’t change your like status.

As in, you can unlike something, but only for a certain period of time.


Oh it’s ok, I get it now, didn’t realise the like time limit before, cheers


I think it’s probably to do with server load as much as anything but it could just as easily be the forum makers treating them like posts. It’s possible the window is the same as for post editing, so 5 minutes. I don’t recall a setting in any case.
