Can't view user cards on Meta - cakeday error

(Allen - Watchman Monitoring) #1

When I go to view a user card today, I get just a white box, and this error in my google chrome browser:

Uncaught Error: Could not find module discourse/helpers/fa-icon imported from discourse/plugins/discourse-cakeday/discourse/components/emoji-images

I tried first on a user with a cake and got just the white box, then got the error again on a user without a cake.

Hmm can we repro @tgxworld?

I don’t remember which URL I was on, but I’m pretty sure it was in a Topic (which had a user showing a cake)

(Allen - Watchman Monitoring) #4

I can see the error here as well

Have you tried a different browser ?

I’m not seeing any problems or getting any error messages in the console using Vivaldi latest.

(Allen - Watchman Monitoring) #6

that was in Chrome, here’s the error in Safari (I was not logged in)

It happens once I click on a profile who’s cake-day is today.

I don’t have a Mac so I can’t test Safari, but I can’t reproduce that in any of my browsers. davegomez’s card displayed fine and error free for me.

Opera Dev
Firefox Dev

So this is a Mac - Safari - only Bug?

I’ve been getting the exact same error, Online Arsenal Community Fan Forum when clicking on either avatar, on a mac, happening in Safari, Chrome, Firefox, logged in or logged out.

It’s happening on the user preferences/messages screen too, completely wiping the content of the page out once I’ve set the birthday (though it may just be because the birthday is today? - edit: just got someone else to check and they can access their messages/preferences when their birthday is set NOT to today).

The emoji works fine by the way, if you go into a topic that the person has used then it’s there Planned Maintenance - Announcements - Online Arsenal Community Fan Forum

I don’t know much about the discourse core and how it reads files so forgive my ignorance, but I’d guess from that error message and this commit that discourse/helpers/fa-icons has moved to discourse-common so the path may be wrong?

That seems plausible. I can recreate this on Meta too using Google Chrome (so it isn’t Safari specific).

My repro steps,

  1. Visit Discourse Meta
  2. Scroll down till you get till you see someone who has an anniversary on 9/24 (today’s date)
  • Side note: Shouldn’t Today’s Anniversaries being showing these people?
  1. Click on their user card

Actual Result:
Nothing happens, it acts like the click never took place
Dev console has an error.

Thanks, I was able to reproduce the error with Windows 10 Vivaldi latest following those steps.

  function requireFrom(name, origin) {
    var mod = registry[name];
    if (!mod) {
      throw new Error('Could not find module `' + name + '` imported from `' + origin + '`');
    return require(name);

The console errors aren’t happening for me today on Discourse Meta

I can see cakes if i click on a user’s card & their anniversary is today (sept 25)

(cpradio) #12

Yup, this commit seems to be the fix for that particular issue


I am from The Hopscotch Forum and this came up:

Those upcoming birthday dates have already passed. It is now 30th of September, 2016.

(Jeff Atwood) #14

Is this resolved and can it be closed @tgxworld?

(Alan Tan) #15

Yup the bug in this topic has been resolved.

I’l tracking

in another topic.
