Is the fix live yet? And do we need to set flairs for each group again or it will be resolved after the update?

Doesn’t seem to be solved yet.


Not yet, it will be merged probably first thing next week.

No, this should not be necessary. All flairs will be kept.


Hello, after updating to discourse 2.8.0.beta4

Icon image of the avatar disappeared and now when I upload the image again it is not saving

Please fix soon.

Nope, still not working.

Dear discourse team, the fix is not working. The behavior of setting a flair is the same - it disappears. No flairs are shown at forum anywhere either.


@kynic, @kinetiksoft the fix has been merged 17 hours ago. If you haven’t already done so in the last 17 hours, update to the latest version available.

If you are already on the latest version, what setting is there on Visibility?

Well, I updated forum to the latest version and flairs are still missing.
I even upload new flairs for the group and set background color, and save. No changes, flairs are missing. Then I return back to group settings and uploaded flair is not there, background color field is empty.

Yes, its working now. :grinning:

It is showing same as screenshot.

@robotnjik what setting is there on Visibility?

Currently only works if I set Visibility > Everyone. Other settings delete flair upload and bg color.

There was another merge about an hour ago, which may fix the issue:

Can someone please confirm if this fixes it in production?

Yes! The latest update fixed everything :smiley:.
Thank you all :heart:.

Now I wonder how mad guys at Visible flair for "invisible" groups: is that on purpose? will be, as it seems it was their fulfilled request that broke everything for everyone here :slight_smile:

Exactly, this is the second issue. You should take even this commit (just merged) REVERT “FIX: do not show private group flair on user avatars” by techAPJ · Pull Request #13991 · discourse/discourse ( upgrading again the site.


I can confirm that this second fix has done the trick. All seems to be in working order :tada:
