Known issue: logged-out search not working right now

Quick heads up since a number of folks have noted/asked about this: yes, the search function for logged-out readers is currently not working. It throws up a complaint that is unhelpful but also not dangerous: "Unauthorized access to internal API. Please refer to...". We'll have it fixed soon, but just a heads up that (a) it is indeed a thing and (b) it's not something to worry about. Sorry about the annoyance!

favoriting is broken on some AskMefi pages

Maybe this is a known problem but I just stumbled across it. I was on this page https://ask.metafilter.com/travel-transportation/hong-kong and tried to favorite the first result by clicking the little plus symbol (+). Nothing happens. I was able to favorite it by going into the post and clicking there. Firefox 56 (ha) on Ubuntu Linux, accepting cookies. Can someone confirm? You can unfavorite if it works.

MetaTalk back button anomaly

So I'm reading an active MetaTalk thread. The "[N] new comments, show" message appears. I click on "show" and get the new messages. I click on a link in one of the new comments and go to a different page. I click on the browser Back button or press the backspace key. I end up back in the MetaTalk page, but without the new comments. Some short time later, the "[N] new comments, show" message appears again. [more inside]

Why is feedly loading Ask Metafilter (only) in an unlogged-in state?

How come in iOS, Feedly randomly and frequently loads posts from AskMe -- and only AskMe -- in the unlogged state (modern)? Even if I click thru to open the post in a browser I remain logged out and unable to log in (page just refreshes) even though I stay logged in (in classic) in other tabs and browsers. When it happens, I end up having to open a new tab, go to the Ask front page, and click the question when I find it. It's annoying enough and frequent enough that I often don't bother. [more inside]

Holy Uncanny Diagonal Lines, Batman!

Twitter links broken?

For the past week or two, anytime I try to click on a link to Twitter while reading Metafilter on my phone, I get an error message. I can access Twitter directly. What gives? Anybody else have this problem?

Small italicized pony request

I can't believe I'm harassing y'all for this, it really is an itty bitty pony. That said I just realized in my Recent Activity when answering a question from an anonymous poster that the anonymous wasn't italicized like it is everywhere else -- ie on the askme home page, question page. (Also this is desktop only as the the username doesn't appear on mobile.) Anonymous was also capitalized, where it's not in the rest of the site. Any specific reason why it's different on the Recent Activity page? And if not... pretty please can I get it to look the same across the site? I don't even know why this bothered me enough to ask, but here it is. Thanks awesome metafilter team, as always you guys are amazing!
