Discobot's narrative is broken


#1

Hi, is there a way i can fix Discobot’s narrative?
it breaks after emoji’s: It asks for an emoji, then reverts back one step, saying it doesn’t see a link in the reply.
skipping doesn’t work.

thanks.

Based on the reply you received, it looks like you attempted to edit discobot’s narrative. You should not see a follow-up asking you for a link when the previous step asks for an emoji.

I just signed up for a new account on https://try.discourse.org and had no issues getting past the emoji step. Have you edited discobot’s narrative in any way?

hi, thanks.
before using discobot at all i changed the @-name - and then changed it back to the original.

other than that: no, i didn’t touch the narrative. i wish i knew how, cos then i’d resolve it, :smiley:

So to reproduce this, change the name of @discobot then change it back? While in the middle of an ongoing narrative? What is the exact sequence of events to reproduce this problem?

no. i changed the name when i first happened on discobot. just as i hit ‘rename’ i realised the name discobot was as good or as bad as any other, so i changed it back.

month passed. didn’t touch it, cos i’m still building the site.

yesterday, to tell my users what discobot does, i wanted to make a series of screenshots. so i tested him myself. but after the ‘emojis’ he moves back to ‘links’ and doesn’t let me skip.

I don’t think we can reproduce this so far. Are you on the latest version of Discourse per GitHub? Are you running any third party plugins?


#7

i’m with discourse hosting, they keep me updated on the latest version.

as for plugin:
wp-discourse
and i recently installed memberpress.

Discourse Hosting runs 1.8.x which isn’t latest, unless you specifically request otherwise. The current version is 1.9 – you can view source on any Discourse web page to see the version near the top.

right.

well, i’ll give it another try when they’ve updated me.

thanks for now!
