No longer able to add chat channel when "Automatically add users" is checked

I’m no longer able to add a public chat channel (where everyone is automatically added).

When I go to add one and fill out the form, on create I get a modal:

Clicking on yes closes it but the channel is not created.

It lets me create a joinable channel with no issue tho. I have upgraded to the latest Discourse and it’s still the same… any ideas what’s going on?


Looks like a bug to me.

I can reproduce the strange blank dialog, but creating the channel works for me when I say “Yes.”

A workaround that seems to work for now is to create the channel without “Automatically add users” selected, and then go back and edit the channel to turn that on.


Thanks Dave, I was able to create a second channel in that manner… however when I try to create the one I originally wanted to it does not work (clicking on creating channel does nothing) and whenever I click on create channel I get this in console:

The category is a child category and a typical everyone can see reply create, so I’m not sure what’s going on :confused:


I managed to create it, but had to change the slug from name-chat to name-chat-channel

Is there anyway to change it to name-chat?

We just pushed a fix for this issue:

Thanks for the report.
