I run a pretty large forum, with over 3000 active users and, according to Google Analytics, about 40 on the site in real-time. We’ve also been users of Discourse for over a year now, and I’ve been supporting the project for over 2 years. But now I’m about to give up on it.
I have been trying for longer than I’d like to admit to get subfolder support working. I’ve rebuilt the containers countless times and nuked the site entirely twice to try to get it to work properly. The biggest problems we face with this configuration is that uploads simply don’t work. uploads.json returns 404 and we cannot upload any files. Also, youtube videos would break when we linked to them. There are absolutely no error logs for either of these issues.
I’ve seen the Sitepoint forum and their setup is exactly what we need and yet after countless hours we can’t get the configuration just right. This has been a real frustrating experience seeing another community achieve the exact results I’ve been trying to get for about 6 months.
So if you’re running a site in this kind of configuration… I would absolutely love it if you could share your “secret sauce” to getting it working.
- Uploads & youtube completely broken on “subfolder” configuration
- Other communities do it just fine apparently
Sorry if this post sounded dramatic, but I really do love this software but these issues are a real show-stopper.
