This evening, the private message list page on my forum stopped working for me and at least one other user (possibly everyone).
I have tried /safe-mode (everything disabled) and the problem persists.
I’m concerned this might be related to an earlier action I took.
A long term user PMed to ask me to remove them from the forum. I first anonymised them, then deleted all their posts (100+, including PMs), and then I deleted their account.
Could this perhaps be related to the issue I’m seeing on the PM page?
Is there any kind of ghost data (particularly around PMs from deleted users) that linger and affect the call to load PM data from the server?
There’s nothing obviously related in my server error logs (as visible from the admin dashboard). Some errors thrown by the ettiquette plugin and the events plugin, which I believe are unrelated.
Apologies for the lack of diagnostic info / repro at this stage. I’m currently on my way home from work and will provide all the info I can when I get back to my laptop. I will also try recreating this issue on another forum instance.
