Broken Witness Voting Links and How to Fix Them
I have been looking to put my witness votes to use. In the process, I noticed that it appears Steemconnect may have changed the way parameter values are handled in Witness Voting links.
I have come across a number of posts where witnesses are using a URL format like this: https://v2.steemconnect.com/sign/account-witness-vote?witness=minerthreat&approve=1
(I am not a witness, I have put my account name in the url for demonstration purpose only)
However, after clicking this link and signing in through steemconnect, the user receives the following error message:
By updating the parameter value of 'approve' from '1' to 'true' in my browser so the URL looks like: https://beta.steemconnect.com/sign/account-witness-vote?witness=minerthreat&approve=true
I am able to successfully complete the voting process and receive a TX ID confirmation
Update your witness voting links so that in stead of
approve=1 the links leverage approve=true. If you are voting for a witness to support their contributions and experience this error, you can update the link in your browser to avoid it.
I hope this helps, I am excited about the recent improvements to the Steem platform and learning more about how to contribute to its success. I hope this helps support witnesses efforts to make this a great platform and community.
