Hello. I hope that this is the correct place to report this - I have found no other similar posts while searching and I think this definitely qualifies as a bug.
I was creating a new subcategory for one of our categories in our Discourse Forum. I was distracted so I make two mistakes:
- I forget to associate the subcategory to the parent category
- I mix-up the subcategory Name and the subcategory Title. We have recently started using emojis in our subcategory Names, so the Name ended up as ‘fis-mec-i-staff’, which should have been the Title, and the Title ended up as ‘Staff ’.
Not noticing I had done this, I create the new category and it appears in our Forum as expected. However, when I try to enter the Category to delete it, I am stuck forever on this screen:
Since nothing else displays on the page, I can’t access the administration tools needed to delete the category. I’ve tried different browsers and they all get stuck on a blank screen on the Category page.
Is there a way to delete a category from outside it? That would bypass having to load the Category page.
Thank you for your time. Any insight into this issue is greatly appreciated!
Edit: I was wondering if perhaps incorporating the emoji into the category title was what broke it, since it was converted to (potentially?) meta-characters like ‘%’.
