I don't LIKE not being able to LIKE a Close or Archived Post

So it seems

I cannot “LIKE” an Archived or Closed topic.

I’m seeing a lot of Archived and Closed topics lately

  • that have gone nowhere (mostly un-implemented feature requests)
  • that I’d “LIKE” to comment on
  • or at minimum… “LIKE” a post / response

but I cannot. “LIKE” that is…

Why not ?

Just because a post is Closed or Archived…

  • doesn’t mean the post / response is no longer relevant.

Why not LIKE this post if you agree.


You are still able to like a closed topic. See: https://meta.discourse.org/t/what-is-the-difference-between-closed-unlisted-and-archived-topics/51238

Anyway, Wishlist category on this forum is now deprecated. The posts are archived there for reference purposes only (so that you have some time to move/copy your requests over to the new wishlist).

Sam, where is the new wishlist?


The link is on the top nav bar.

Here's an example of a post that someone “wanted to like”…
but couldn’t.

A webflow user sent me a pm

  • (informing me that) they liked / agreed with my post
  • and wanted to show support / agreement what the contents of the post
  • but they couldn’t respond / like the post.

This is the post in question:

It’s archived. No one can like it / agree with it

  • Not even me… who created the post.


  • this was first time I had seen @uzzer response (in the post mentioned above)…
  • and I was going to respond his response…

but alas... you cannot respond to an archived or closed post. :frowning:

Again - just because a post is old / closed / archived

  • doesn’t mean the post is irrelevant.
