[Solved] In Threaded Layout, ALL Like Counts Stay at 0 Even With Likes

I just decided to switch my main forums (that have been running for a year or 2 now) from the Extended Layout to the Threaded Layout.

After switching to the Threaded Layout, and then updating and clearing out all of the "forum maintenance" options (caches, statistics etc on the wpForo Dashboard page), I am having an issue with the "thumbs up" counts — I wasn't having a problem with the counts in the Extended Layout before switching to Threaded.

Now the "thumbs up" counts ALL read "0" (zero), even if they had likes before. And even weirder, if I go to a post without a like (one without it saying "xxx liked" or "You liked" underneath it, and click the thumbs up, THEN it changes to 1 next to the thumb icon. BUT, if if I then reload the page, then it goes back to the count of 0 for that post, but underneath the 0 count, it reads "You liked." So, the system is accepting the likes, it's just not displaying the count correctly.

I even tried logging in with multiple accounts and testing with a brand new topic, and the counts are still 0 after I reload the page.

I tried clearing all the caches (including my main CDN one) and updating the statics etc. on the wpForo dashboard page, but still no counts.

If I click on the thumbs button again the unlike it — one with a single like but showing a 0 count, then the count changes to -1!??

If I then reload that page, it then goes to a 0 count again.

I updated wpForo to 1.7 that just came out last night or wo, and the same problem exists. 


Does anyone know how to fix this issue?
