Hosed my discourse install by adding jquery src link to <head> customization


(august) #1

I seemed to have hosed my install by trying to include jquery in the <head>

Now, I can’t reply to posts. I can’t even revert to a backup. It appears that all messaging is broken.

I tried to go into the docker and DELETE the style from the user_customization table, but that didn’t help any.

Is there anything I can do besides re-install everything?

Thanks -august.

You will need to remove the customization via the command line. I believe there is something in the howto category on this.

Also we include jQuery in Discourse already, you shouldn’t need to add it if you want to use it.

Google isn’t giving me any results. Is there a command I can run to wipe out all customizations? I can’t find it in any docs.

I think this is what you are looking for. I have done something similar in the past.

Odd I found it first try…

Thanks everyone. I was able to restart it without the customizations.

I’m curious though how this would break all messaging. I’m evaluating discourse for my company and this seems very fragile.

Re: googling…it always helps if you know what to look for. I do hope the paid for support is less snarky.

We definitely like people who pay us money more! :wink:

Hmm, should we reject any customizations that contain the word “jquery.min” in order to avoid this? Put up a message saying something like:

It looks like you’re trying to import jQuery. It’s already there! Plus, you’re going to need to change the way you write stuff to deal with the dynamic updates. See here.
