Read-only mode does not work?

(ljpp) #1

Just noticed a weird thing that on all of my (3) Discourse instanced, the read-only mode does not work. When I enalble it, the UI-notification does appear, but if you hit F5 the read-only mode is gone. User seem to be able to post as well.

Is this a bug or is there something I am not getting right? All instances are on 1.6.4 stable.

It was fixed recently, so chances are it isn’t in stable yet.

Ok. This is a show stopper grade issue - actually bumped into it when migrating my site to a better server (more about that later). I started wondering how users kept posting, while I was supposed to be read only on the old instance.

Please release to stable soon.

P.S. Does it even work during the auto-backup?
