Can only post in Uncategorised since upgrading from beta6 to beta10

(Sam Stickland) #1


I’ve just upgraded and now all the users (including admins) can only post in the uncategorised category. I can view all the topics, but in the ‘New Topic’ form the Category box only shows ‘Uncategorised’

Any idea what might be wrong?

Topic creation via email and topic replies are working.

OK, more strangeness.

If I go in and reset the permissions on one category then I can post to that category again. But as soon as I repeat this for the next category (staff) the list of categories in the new form resets back to just Uncategorised.

EDIT: Actually it’s losing the category I just reset the permissions for as soon as I navigate to a different part of the site.

EDIT: Nothing new in the error logs.

Are you on the absolute latest version? If not, get on it. /admin/update

(Sam Stickland) #5

Yup. I’m on “v1.4.0.beta10 +226”

Any plugins running?

(Sam Stickland) #7

Nope, no plugins runnings.

I increased the size of the external avatar URL field, and I have a custom polyfill that rewritten Email::Receiver.process with some additional logic to handle incoming posts from a conjoined mailing-list (which is still working fine)

Any JavaScript errors, have you tried a diff browser?

(Sam Stickland) #9

I don’t see any Javascript errors in Chrome, although it did record this 404:

GET 404 (Not Found)

I’ve just tried it in MS Edge and I have the same problem there, and a colleague has reported the same problem in Safari on a Mac.

Can you try a rebuild?

(Sam Stickland) #11

OK, I’ve just been through a rebuild (/var/discourse/launcher rebuild app) and I’ve still got the same problems.
