Thanks to Simon we now have a Like feature in XWiki, yeah!
We started a discussion on matrix about the unlike step. We have a UI disagreement so I’m bringing it to the dev community to discuss it further.
Right now when you click the Like button, the page is liked. However when you click the Like button again to unlike, it’s not unliked immediately. There’s this modal that appears:
My POV is that unliking should be fast and simple, like like, and just clicking the button should do it. Simon’s POV is that the users could think that clicking the like button again would show the likers and not perform an unlike and this he proposed this modal. My POV is that users are used to the like/unlike toggle and having the modal gets into the way. And we need a different way to show likers (right now and FTM it’s a viewer that’s accessible in the “more actions” content menu).
More general philosophy: XWiki is too complex and users are looking for simplicity. Each feature should be as simple as it can possible be. This is why I’d prefer that unliking be just a single click, as liking.
