I am having trouble with newly created category. I don’t know if the problem came from the large image I set as a background or the name of the category (I used a french accent Matériel in the name).
Now, the page of the category just keeps loading indefinitely. I can’t change the name of delete the category so I can create another one.
Please, any tips ?
I am going to answer myself (if this can help anyone in the future). The problem was indeed the weird accented name I gave to my category. The category just wont show so I can edit the name.
What I finally did is to update the category using the API as follow:
- I created an API key in the administration page for my self (admin user)
- went to the API endpoint for my forum and executed a curl put to update the category name (see here API endpoing
- Now my category page loads as expected
Hmm, can we repro this @tshenry?
I think if I’m following all of the breadcrumbs correctly, a fix is in the works!
The issue was first reported here:
Allow or not accented characters in category slug according to "slug generation method" setting
Then it looks like @Falco started working on a fix at the end of this duplicate topic:
Category slug containing Unicode characters results in redirect loop
That was then superseded by this pending PR:
So it should be fixed soon from what I can tell.
