Spotify Community Forum: Instant Kudos (JavaScript AJAX)

Whenever I Kudos something, it has to reload the entire page. Seriously? Not the place for PHP. Let's change the Kudos button functionality and make it JavaScript -- we click, the button changes to tell us our kudo was recorded, we continue scrolling down, reading, kudo-ing. It's a huge interruption to have the page reloaded -- have to scroll back down to where you were prior, ruins the flow. Instant Kudos! Made possible by the beautifully flawed jewel: JavaScript.

Well: time to close this thread. Instant kudos is working. I have no idea what the heck was going on yesterday (is the other flavor with L's not community appropos? no idea how conservative we are here). Some fringe case though: *not* worth Spotify's time. Sorry for making a fuss :-P

The page doesn't reload when I kudo a post. What browser are you using?

Just updated to Firefox 28.0 -- same thing when I Kudo'd your post. What browser and platform are you on?

Moved it over here in the help section since this seems to be more of a browser issue.

I'm on Firefox 28.0 and Win 7 x64 and it didn't have to reload the page but instantly added the kudo. Same on Chrome.

 

Maybe it's because of OSX?

I don't see how an OS could affect JavaScript that way. This odd issue should be tested on Mac 10.6-10.9 with all the browsers of note (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, IE, Opera...).

There's something up with OS X and Firefox or something. I also posted this: http://community.spotify.com/t5/Spotify-Ideas/Improve-Spotify-Community-Forum-Text-Box/idi-p/714235 I don't see Rich Text or HTML. (HTML preceding this should be bold and there is a line break above this line -- I cannot see either after I post). I have Ubuntu at home -- will investigate later. I'd test on Windows, but they are the only pay-for OS left and ask for Product Keys, which makes clean installs for Windows a huge pain. Oh M$... the 90's are over, but not for you! M$ puns aside: I will extensively test my claims and post the results soon.

Ok @TamaLlamaFusion I'm only asking this to rule it out- do you have javascript disabled in your browser?  The fact that you know what javascript and AJAX do makes me think the answer is "no", but I had to ask!  I've had situations where I'm testing my work for compatibility and forget to turn it back on.

What's a Spotify Rock Star, and how do I become one?

Haha -- JavaScript enabled :-) Good question though, helps to check. Firefox is smart and made users do about:config and go through a scary "void warranty" screen to enable/disable JS. So: thank you for that, Mozilla!
