Buttons and features not working on YouTube Spawn Man 4/7/10 5:45 PM
Hi guys! I have noticed that after the new layout was installed, some features on YouTube have stopped working for me. Primarily, I cannot click some buttons on the site.

For example, on my own channel where it lists the people I subscribe to, when I press on some of the names and links, nothing at all happens, as if I were just pressing plain text and not a link like it should be. Weirdly, SOME of the links and names in this subscribers section work, but others don't.

Other examples are the links in profile pages, such as Send Message, Block User, Subscribe etc - these are just not pressing in! Others like Report User, Leave a Channel Comment etc still work.

This problem does not seem to happen in video pages, just in profile pages. I left the page open for a while to make sure it wasn't a slow-loading advertisement, but it wasn't that. So yes, something is amiss.

Any help would be, well, helpful! Any reason why this wouldn't work?

Regards, Spawn Man.

Mine don't work either.  I can't add someone as a friend.  I can only subscribe to someone by hitting the button at the top of the channel page.  The subscribe button by the user's profile doesn't work.  Nothing can be clicked on in that area.  It's probably just another bug.  But, I don't know if YouTube is aware of it yet.

I can't create any new playlists. The feature is broken.

I'm having the same problem as the original poster.  If you look in the forum there are number of other posts about this.

I have the same problem! But I was able to somewhat fix it.
I use firefox, but when I logged in with internet explorer it let me use the buttons I couldn't use in firefox. I hope this helps people having this problem.

Im having the same problem. The only fix I had was to view my channel with the GRID mode on the videos option .

UNABLE TO OPEN any of my friends channels or any subscription channels on my channel.  Is YOUTUBE aware of this yet?  Do they even read these posts?  Why are they CONSTANTLY SCREWING UP things that were working fine?  As soon as they fix things and it works for a while then they change stuff & SCREW IT UP AGAIN!!!!!!  Do they have some high schoolers or some inconsiderate or arrogant 20 somethings MORONS creating or fixing their stuff! These constant braking-down issues are REALLY getting stale already.  They need to finally hire some COMPETENT people to manage YOUTUBE!

This Problem is the exact same for me. Im a mac as well as all my family and i have tried to click on the buttons on many computers (like four) and it doesn't work on any of them. so i think the best we can do is try to contact youtube to fix this problem as soon as possible.

Well I experimented & the only way I can open my friends or my subscriptions channels is to click the link "see all" underneath each particular section - that's when they open up in a grid form & then they open when you click on them. Hope it may be helpful to some although it doesn't fix the main problem.  Common YOUTUBE  employees - time to WAKE UP, get your coffee & go to work & FIX this!!!

Same problem - I've tried both Safari & Firefox and the problem affects all links at the top 3 or 4 inches below the video player, no matter which module is put there.  The links do not work at all in that area on my channel or any other channel I visit.  It also prevents me from editing my own channel.

Alot of people have reported that the functionality of YT in a number of browser is not working. YT is aware of the issue and Liz has posted this reference here about it, the Bug/Issue effects people's channels differently so hopefully they can find a solution to fix the whole problem soon..

The search bar, search button, browse button, upload button, the button with my username on it and the sign out button
 
NONE OF THESE WORKS!!!!!!!!!!
 
WHAT THE HELL GOOGLE?
 
YOU SHOVE DOWN A CRAPPY DESIGN DOWN OUR THROATS WHEN YOU GOT RID OF THE EVERYTHING-IS-FINE-AND-WORKING-WITHOUT-A-GLITCH-AND-USER-FRIENDLY OLD YOUTUBE LAYOUT.
 
NOW YOU ARE MAKING MORE CHANGES - WHICH DON'T WORK BY THE WAY - AND SCREWING EVERYTHING UP!!!!!!!!!
 
WHAT ARE THE MORONS IN THE "CREATIVITY MEETINGS" DOING? ARE YOU ALL JUST PUMPED UP ON CRACK?
 
PS: SUCK MY ASS
