Can't edit Categories (error changing color or order)


When trying to change the colour of a category (whether it has topics or not) isn’t working. I can change the colour of 2 of my 30 categories but I can’t see the use case.

"Sorry, an error has occurred" after changing category colors

I can’t reproduce this on – I am able to change the color of a category with permissions and a category without permissions.

What’s the common factor in the 2 categories you can change? That they don’t have permissions set?

Their incoming email address is blanĸ. Cannot save category when incoming email address is blank

Check the “Settings” page for the categories. Is the “Custom incoming email address” field blank? @riking reported a bug related to that earlier:

Aha, good idea, @lightyear is this a bug from the new field on that page that your PR added?

Gotcha. Here’s the fix: BugFix: email-in on categories wasn’t null-ed properly by gnunicorn · Pull Request #2054 · discourse/discourse · GitHub . email_in wasn’t properly cleared to null causing an error with the index-constraint for that column if you saved more than one category with an empty value.

@riking, can you confirm this patch fixes the issue for you?

I just merged this bugfix, will deploy it in an hour or so.

Yup, it’s working! Thanks.


Awesome. Thanks guys. It’s working.
