Admin Plugin page is blank - Error: There is no route named adminPlugins.index

(Magnetidog) #1


I just upgraded via shell on a DigitalOcean installation with any size Discourse forum. All is working fine, with the exception of the plugin area in the Administration panel, which is entirely blank.

If I go to admin/upgrade, the list loads fine, instead.

I see this error in Firebug coming from a js file:

Error: There is no route named adminPlugins.index
Line 16

Tried to search in the forums for the same issue but I could not find anything.

I attempted multiple rebuilds and disabled plugins, without luck.

Try entering safe mode: How to use Discourse Safe Mode

Im seeing this as well.

Version: 1.7.0.beta8

(Sam Saffron) #4

Is it working fine in safe mode. Did you upgrade to latest?

(Alex S) #5

It’s not working in safe mode, and looks it upgraded to latest automatically.

(Sam Saffron) #6

Can you try

cd /var/discourse
git pull
./launcher rebuild app

If it is still broken this may be related to some routing change @eviltrout made yesterday, what locale is your forum?

(Alex S) #7

Rebuilt the app, still broken.

I tried both English and Chinese.

Isn’t the “index” route supposed to be automatically added by Ember?

Also, that route works fine here on meta. We still don’t have a clear reproduction case.


Hi, I installed discourse on localhost a few hours ago, and I have almost the same error, but to me it doesn’t show any error, just blank page. I use firefox esr, it allows javascript, I run git pull and rebuilt it again to get the fix vinothkannans, but no luck…

It returned the error in development environment. That’s why I created that PR. Surprisingly it is working fine for me too in production server.

My PR not yet merged with master.

(RĂ©gis Hanol) #12

I can confirm that this route doesn’t work in dev anymore.

I merged @vinothkannans’s PR but I will leave it out to @eviltrout to ensure this is the right fix (not sure why this is the only route we have to do that…)

indeed, using safe mode did not make a difference. I tried multiple times with the whole rebuild process. The weird thing is that this occurs in some installs and not in others, even with the exact same plugins.

I have not tried the fix by @vinothkannans yet!

(Vinoth Kannan) #14

I found way to reproduce in production server. If we use a plugin which use a nested route of adminPlugins then we will not have the issue. In this case index route created automatically like @zogstrip mentioned . For example I am using discourse-navigation plugin which have page as /admin/plugins/navigation. So I am not having the issue in my live. Like it I guess meta.discourse will have akismet plugin.

If we don’t have any plugins which using that path then we can see the issue.

Meta is still on the Ember 2.4 branch which is why it isn’t breaking here.

It looks like in the newer versions of Ember, you need to have a nested route in order for Ember to generate the index route automatically

I have the same error, forum is blank.

I try reboot and rebuild, but not work.

If I enter in safe-mode works fine. Any solution??

(Vinoth Kannan) #17

When you done rebuild? Recently a PR for this issue is merged with master. You may need to try again.

How it created the index route automatically when all plugins disabled :open_mouth:

(Miguel) #18

Okey, I upgrade with the new two commits: forum is blank.
I reboot and rebuild: forum is blank :frowning:

I clarify that the entire forum is left blank, not just the plugins page.


It worked for me :stuck_out_tongue: Thank you very much @vinothkannans! :smiley:

What exactly have you done? Step by step please :smile:
