Instead of loading wheel I get a modal box due to guest gate plugin

I’m not sure if this is a bug, but it doesn’t seem like intended behavior…

When I load a new page in our forums, sometimes I get the header modal box as seen in the vid below.

Should we be seeing a loading spinner or something, instead?

I used to get that all the time, but for quite some time now it hasn’t occurred for me unless this regressed again.

The first steps are to prove it isn’t caused by a plugin or other customization.

Can you confirm if this happens in safe mode? What about if you disable plugins in the yml and rebuild and use a fresh theme?

Was it identified as a regression last time?


I don’t know if it was ever addressed, it just stopped occurring for me. I’ve been away for a while, I apologize.

The modal has the class “gate” and I’m not aware of anything like that in core. I’m guessing you have some sort of custom gate functionality on your site that’s causing this.


It may be the Quora-like plugin that requires guests to sign in? @jord8on

Ahhhh, that’s a good tip!

I am using the Guest Gate (Sign Up Popup Plugin) which uses the .gate class.

So I wonder if this is an issue created by that guest gate!
