Programming note

If you’ve found the Like function on Scripting News isn’t working, it might be because I moved the CMS behind the site, and it’s the CMS that implements the Like function.

The simple workaround is to Sign off and sign back on again. Try the Like function. If it works, I’ll see it. If it doesn’t please send me an email at or reply to this post on Medium.

Technical background. I think the server identity is hashed into the security string returned by Twitter. I think that’s why we need to re-sign-on. A very reasonable design. Still diggin!
