I compose my user guides as PMs from my non priviledged account. I send them to my moderator account, and I invite other users to proofread, check for clarity etc. Once I’m done I take the PM and move just that post to the “User Guides” category.
So far it has worked well (largely thanks to the way that edits work in Discourse).
Today I get a “500 internal Server error” when I try to move the post.
The log shows:
Message (6 copies reported)
NoMethodError (undefined method
update_column' for nil:NilClass) /var/www/discourse/app/models/post_mover.rb:95:increate_first_post’
I was able to move the post to a different (public) topic, then once it was there, move it to the topic I was originally trying to move it to.
Can a category be locked temporarily?
