Download My Posts failed


#1

User informed me they could not download their posts, I tried as well (button in user/activity), I get a message saying “Data export failed” and this is in the logs:

I am on current discourse stable v1.8.4 installed the supported way through docker on ubuntu.

If this is a bug (can we repro @techapj?) we would only fix it in the current 1.9 beta.


(Arpit Jalan) #3

I am unable to repro this on tests-passed branch.

@moparisthebest if you wish to change the tracking branch see this topic:


#4

I just upgraded to the tests-passed branch, but I get the same error, currently on v1.9.0.beta5 +73:

So the original reporting user made a new account, made a post, and export posts worked for that new account. My only thought is this forum and users were imported from an SMF forum using the included importer, did it not do something correctly?


(Jeff Atwood) #5

Looks like the import did something incorrect with the data, then.


(Arpit Jalan) #6

The error you are seeing is most probably because of incorrect ID saved for a parent category. I just pushed a fix to handle the error and continue exporting archive.


#7

Thanks for the patch!

Is there a way to pull just that commit into my discourse without changing the version from tests-passed to master? Alternatively, when will that be in tests-passed? :slight_smile:


(Arpit Jalan) #8

It’s already in tests-passed. :wink:


#9

Ah, I couldn’t upgrade in the ui, but command line did just fine :slight_smile:

Also great news, that fixed it and exports now work. Would it be worth trying to fix the missing parent category problem somehow too?
