I'm not currently able to select the "best answer" for any question I've posted on the Ask.LO site as I can't find the button in the web interface.
I posted the following question and got confirmation from another user that the select button was missing:
This site had a short downtime last weekend to update the askbot software (should fix the upload images bug, but didn't sadly). Since that downtime, the button to "accept" an answer has disappeared.
This seems like a pretty bad bug, as it blocks the fundamental workflow of the site and frustrates every new user who tries to follow instructions and mark their questions as correctly answered. Given the disruption this bug causes, I'm setting severity to 'critical'; feel free to triage into a new category as appropriate.
Hi Alex, any idea what's wrong?
The button's html is rendered to the page, but the corresponding css to render it seems to be gone?
<div id="answer-img-accept-920" class="answer-img-accept" title="mark this answer as correct (click again to undo)"></div>
is in the html, but there is no style for answer-img-accept, thus the button is invisible.
Only the hover one is present:
the file in askbot/skins/... has the correct stlyes, but the one in static doesn't.
but as the size is rather different, I refrain from just copying them over. There likely is some compression/whitespace removal stuff done when properly syncing the contents.
$ wc askbot/skins/default/media/style/style.css static/default/media/style/style.css
3604 8755 78840 askbot/skins/default/media/style/style.css
527 1880 52572 static/default/media/style/style.css
I've added this to the Website/Tasks wiki page, please when fixed cut it out so that we keep the wiki up-to-date.

What purpose does the Tasks page serve? It looks just like a shortlist of some website-related bugs. Right now it's an Orphan page, so people will have to know it exists and go looking for it. If there's any way for us automate the maintenance of that page, that would be much preferable to us having to do manual updates.
I'll send this to the mailing list to see if there's way to automatically update tasks. However, the list is becoming taller.
Fixed an error in the merge from upstream askbot, updated the settings.py (corrected source and target static files directories), and collected static files.
Button is visible again.
Thanks – VERIFIED.
