Deprecation warnings are causing an exception

Our forum, which is hosted by Discourse, is suddenly gone - it doesn’t show any posts anymore and there’s a big JS error in the console.

Any idea what might be the issue? I was thinking it could be an issue with the theme, but I’ve checked and it’s fine as far as I can see (We still have access to the admin panel)

We are seeing the same issue since updating to beta 12

It seems to be due to this part of the code:


options is undefined so an exception is thrown and that crashes the whole website.


We have a repro of the issue and will be issuing a fix shortly, thanks heaps for bringing it to our attention


We reverted the change via this commit. Thanks @hithere for identifying the precise issue!

As an immediate workaround, Safe Mode should allow you to access the affected forums. That will temporarily disable any themes/plugins which are triggering the deprecation notices.

We’ll get this fix rolled out to our hosting ASAP - very likely within the next hour.


Confirming the revert fixes things. Thanks for the quick response.
