Cannot delete banner post

After removing the banner it still shows to both public and logged in users.

Please advise

Did you make it not a banner anymore (un-pin topic) before you deleted it?

I did change it to not a banner

How long did you wait between un-pinning the topic and deleting it? Perhaps there was a caching issue and the un-pinning can’t properly take effect because the topic doesn’t exist, so it can’t perform actions on it?

I don’t understand why this would not work immediately. Isn’t Discourse java based?

Errrmm. No, It’s Ruby and Ember

I do not understand why this car is not fast, isn’t it green?


My bad.

How long should I wait?

After you un-pinned it, did a new post appear in it that said it was no longer a banner?

Yes, that is correct.

Can you provide a screenshot of the wrench options on the topic?


  • undelete
  • unbanner
  • delete

If this works it’s a bug. Deleting a banner should stop it from showing up.


@techapj can you verify this case? What happens when you delete a bannered post?

I just tested this case. Deleting a bannered topic removes banner.

Did you try refreshing the page?

I’ve just run into this exact issue, running v2.1.0.beta2 +289. Not sure if my case is related to server migration or not.

My only workaround was to create a new banner topic, unpin topic, then finally delete it.

We need an exact repro here to fix it, @techAPJ tried and had no luck. Possibly related to migration.
