Can't create new categories


(Marvin Lee Fimmel) #1

Hello everyone,

i can’t create new categories in my fresh install of Discourse.

I don’t know how to look for what went wrong either.

I tried to create a new category with default settings, but it just doesn’t work. I can edit the old ones.

Im running Discourse with the Docker install. I installed it how it was stated in your github repo. Im using Debian 7 and did it exactly like you said in the guide. I also use Mandrill for my E-Mail delivery.

https:// github.com /discourse/discourse/blob/master/docs/INSTALL-digital-ocean.md

In case you wan’t that i post some logs. Say me where they are located and i can paste them.

I guess im running the latest version, because i installed it last night.

I have a screenshot in case it helps.

I think there was a bug here around localization? Can you try switching to English temporarily and see if it works? I am not sure if that bug was resolved @gerhard.

Indeed, duplicate of
