Too many badges hide the Reply/Quick Reply buttons
Posted by the Baron on Wednesday, January 5, 2022 7:56 AM

We can add badges to our signatures, but if we add more than a certain number and use up the available space, the Reply/Quick Reply buttons are hidden from view.

Here's a screen shot to illustrate:

This has been around for a long time; it's a low-severity bug, but a bug nevertheless.  I thought I'd report it formally today.

That's a good observation. I've seen missing reply buttons and wondered why it happens on random posts, but never put 2 and 2 together on the badge thing.

Maybe not so random afterall.

I don't think its the number of badges that an issue as you can only have so many. I think its more to do with the size. This has been on going for a while, not sure if its woukld be down to FSM to sort out or if people need to reduce the size.

Yes, whether it's the number or size, either way, it looks like the available real estate is used up and pushes the buttons out of view on the page.

I think it's definitely for FSM to address.  Moving the Reply/Quick Reply to another place on the page could resolve this.

Badges?  I don't have to show you any stinking badges!  Cowboy

Choose your animated gif maker and throw them all into a single footprint.  Pretty easy.  Doesn't fix the bug, but sometimes in engineering we say 'well don't do that' Stick out tongue

Thanks,

Those are workarounds, but unfortunately, one user can't fix someone else's signature so that he can see the Reply button.
