Reblog option is not hidden for author's own post on eSteem Mobile v2(2.0.6)

in #utopian-io6 years ago

Project Information

Expected Behavior
When a user opens his/her own profile, there shouldn't be an option to reblog /resteem one's own post.

Actual Behavior
When you visit your own profile on esteem app v2, you will see three vertical dots on the right top of the post. When you click on those three dots, you can see the options like copy link, reblog and reply. While copying a link and replying to your own post make sense, but there is a presence of reblogging your own post.
When you click on reblog, you get a pop-up displaying that your post has been reblogged successfully.

Steps to Reproduce

  • Launch the application
  • Open your profile
  • Select any post of your choice
  • Click on three vertical dots on right top corner of the post
  • Click reblog

Recording of the Bug


  • Application : esteem Mobile v2 (2.0.6)
  • Android Version : 6.0.1
  • Model Number : Redmi 3S

Proof of Work


Hi @syedumair, thanks for making this contribution

I was able to replicate the same behavior. The reblog option should not be available on the post of a user that is logged in to his own account. Must have been an oversight on the developers part.

It is a great find. I appreciate that you first opened this issue on github and waited for the acknowledgement of the bug from the PO before posting to Utopian.

I like how well you described the actual and expected behaviors. Also, the steps you provided were easy to follow, no difficulty there.

Are you aware that you can include in your report an analysis on what caused the bug? You can also propose or suggest a possible fix. Doing this will earn you extra points on the questionaire. Well, you can give it a try in your next contribution :)

I look forward to more of your reports :)

Hello @fego
Thank you for your review.
I am well aware about providing analysis and fix of the issue but I am not technical enough to do it. However if it is possible for a layman to learn it, I am willing to do so.

Thank you for your review, @fego! Keep up the good work!

Nicely catchup.

Thanks for using eSteem!
