We’re getting ready to launch (in four days) and as we put our install through its paces, we came across the alert above.
The path was:
Admin in Chrome browser:
• New user created (via csv bulk upload)
• Email invite sent
User (really just the admin testing the process in an incognito browser)
• Email accepted
• Users uses Discourse
• Not actively logged off
• Return to computer next day with incognito turned off
• Log out of admin profile
• Try to log into user profile (not in incognito)
We see that this sort of false non-activation had been discussed here on the board previously and been declared dead.
We’re going to try to recreate this in new browsers, no incognito hocus pocus, but since we saw some other bugs (and we’re on the hosted plan, which means we can’t use those solutions) we want to raise our hands early and ask, “is this something real?”
