All links to categories broken?

Is anyone else on HOSTED DISCOURSE seeing this? …I emailed the team an hour ago, but haven’t heard anything yet.

for example, all the links from my categories page, Categories - Podcaster Community simply lead to this error

error from safari inspector…

repro in Chrome, not logged in as any user…

Ooof. Sorry for the disruption here. Let me see if I can find something out. :+1:

If anyone else is experiencing it please shout out. :pray:

I have a forum on a hosted instance and I am not seeing this error.
I notice it isn’t happening in safe mode on your forum, so it is likely a plugin or component. :thinking:

Have you made any changes lately?

I haven’t made changes to components recently.

I did just create a new category… which led to me discovering the problem. So maybe there’s an odd sideeffect to cat creation . . .

I do have two custom components installed (that I wrote)… disabling those didn’t fix the problem. But works-in-safe-mode is a start at troubleshooting.

I bet it’s this


4 posts were split to a new topic: Problem with calendar plugin

OP’s error (that’s me) was for both logged-in as an admin user, and for anons.

After a little discussion in PM, we think we’ve tracked it to the Topic List Previews Theme Component (cc. @merefield :crossed_fingers:)


I have that component installed. Disabling it just resolved the category-links-not-working issue


Discourse team members have rightly pointed out (in pm) that that component is third-party…

I’m going to look into switching to the Topic List Thumbnails and Topic List Excerpts components.

…and I’ve moved this over to support as it’s not a bug [in Discourse].


Just closing the loop here - @merefield has now made the necessary updates to the Pavilion theme component, so it should work well both before and after the incoming core change :heart_eyes:
