Big White Gap at Footer after updating to latest Discourse version


(Mohammad Mustafa Ahmedzai) #1

The latest discourse update to version v1.3.0.beta2 +1 introduced a big white gap at the footer of the Forum. This gap looks like a design mistake or the introduction of an unwanted div section as highlighted in the image below

<div id="user-card" class="ember-view show-badges"></div>

I am experiencing this problem on all my pages at, I don’t want to use the display:none property to hide this “user-card” ID because I feel it has some important purpose. Kindly share a quick fix for this problem. Is this some design flaw on all forums or something wrong on my forum?


The big gap bug is now fixed after upgrading to latest version of Discourse!

Yes, this is a bug, can you have a look @eviltrout?

(Régis Hanol) #3

Can you update to latest? It should be fixed now.

(Mohammad Mustafa Ahmedzai) #4

I am already on the latest version as I mentioned v1.3.0.beta2 +1

(Régis Hanol) #5

Latest version is v1.3.0.beta2 +15 :wink:

(Mohammad Mustafa Ahmedzai) #6

but I have received no update yet? It says You’re up to date!

just go straight to /admin/upgrade and you’ll see if you have an upgrade available.

Thank you @tobiaseigen, you are truly a life saver!

@zogstrip I am now at v1.3.0.beta2 +16, its time for you to upgrade :wink:


The big gap bug is now fixed after upgrading to latest version but I wonder why didn’t I get notification for the latest available discourse version and instead I had to manually try the method proposed by @tobiaseigen

That’s because it’s not a new version per say. It’s “bleeding edge”. It’s our development branch. We usually release a new beta every other week.
