Allow uncategorized topics



I’ve recently discovered that in v1.7.0stable the option “allow uncategorized topics” has no effect.
Users can still post topics without a category selected (after disabling the option, we also enabled and disabled again).

It’s on a fresh/empty install of discourse.

Anyone else noticing this bug?

Are these staff? Staff can always do that, as they are immune to that rule.


No, they are neither staff nor admins. They are default trust level 1 users.

Can you repro this @techapj?

I can’t repro this issue on either master or stable branch.


Could the problem be that there is a category itself called “Keine Kategorie”/(“No Category”?) which cant be deleted?
