When attempting to move around topics on my forum a bit earlier not all of the category options were available. I noted two specific occurences:
- I wanted to move a topic from a top-level category to one of its
subcategories, but none of the subcategories were available on the
dropdown (everything else, as far as I could tell, was available)
- I create a topic that ended up uncategorized (another bug? I have this disabled on my forum), and was unable to select any top-level categories from the dropdown
I’m currently using Chrome on a laptop with Windows 8.1, my forum is using the most recent version of Discourse with no additional plugins.
Edit: Poking around a bit more, the above conditions aren’t set in stone, I’ve tried with various threads and I don’t have a consistent set of “where I can’t move things from->to” at the moment, but top-level categories are frequently missing, along with (less often) entire category trees (top level category + subcategories, not sure what else to call it). Not quite sure what the deal is.
Edit2: As far as I can tell, the move thread dropdown is fine on Meta. So, er, any ideas?
Edit3: Okay hold on, I just saw I’m one update behind, involving category permissions. Seeing if this fixes it.
Edit4: No, that didn’t fix it, but I’ve narrowed down the issue better. When I follow a link to a topic (e.g. from the categories page or the latest page), the move topic dropdown isn’t fully populated. But if I refresh the topic page, the topic dropdown then works fine and allows me the full selection of categories. I am unable to reproduce this behavior on meta.
Edit5: and last bit of this conversation with myself (…for now), removing all site customizations does not fix the issue
