Bug Bookmark post doesn't work unless Bookmark Thread is also enabled.

Not open for further replies.


I wanted to have Can Bookmark Threads set to No and Can Bookmark Posts set to Yes, but when doing so, despite the bookmark icon/button showing on posts, it doesn't do anything when clicked. If I set Can Bookmark Threads back to Yes then the bookmark post icon/button does work.

My skin is essentially the default skin with stylevar changes to alter the appearance; however, the same behavior is seen when using the unaltered default style.

Is this expected behavior or a bug?


Thank you!

This probably isn't the best way to do it, but a patch like this applied to upload/dbtech/bookmark/hooks/showthread_complete.php appears to fix the issue:
