Error in loading topics

I was trying to upload a topic on discourse which had 5 megs of images. For some weird reasons it kept on uploading until I closed the browser. Since then none of the topics load for me. I can login. See all the topics but when I click on any topic it keeps loading and nothing happens. Here is the error logs which I see.

Error: Could not find module `discourse/mixins/string-buffer` imported from `discourse/plugins/discourse-links-category/discourse/components/featured-link`

Are you running the latest version of Discourse? Do you have any plugins installed?

yeah I have the latest version. Got some plugins like cakeday and solved

Scratch that. I didn’t read the backtrace properly :sunglasses:

The first line of the plugin say that the error is in discourse-links-category plugin.

It probably got hit by an update. Please disable it and try again.

Yes. However, this plugin will soon be part of the core Discourse software, so just wait a bit I guess.


For anyone interested, here’s the announcement of that feature
