Category not always applying


(AstonJ) #1

This has happened a few times now - I’ve posted a thread but the category doesn’t seem to associate (I have to move to a different category then back again).

When clicking on the thread and the edit icon next to the title - the category is actually showing! Very weird :confused:

Also, a few times on posting a new thread the ‘you must choose a category’ notice shows even tho there’s already one present.

Any ideas what might be going on? Has it happened to anyone else?

I’ve seen this on my hosted instance in the past two days.

After creating the topic, moving into a different category (then back again if needed) let the category display properly.

Are you can admin for your forum?

If so, then you’re most likely experiencing this issue:

I think it’s probably related to this discussion:

Forgot to say that the ‘post to uncategorised’ feature is set to off. (But when I am posting, it actually has the right category selected.)

Yeah I know this bug

Select2 is displaying lies we got to fix it, there is a separate report of this elsewhere


Multi-select to change category doesn't work

For now, from a permissions & sorting point of view, is the actual category shown in the edit mode being respected? (or is it important to do the category reset dance to make it look right).
