So we have a tag which we can’t select to see all the posts associated because it displays the 404 page every time.
My assumption is that is because it has a extension as the tag name (
circle.yml), but I can’t remove it because the tag page for it doesn’t come up.
Is there any remedy for that?
I have tried to create a
circle.yml tag on my test site to test out its limitations/workarounds, but it seems it will automatically change it to one without the full stop. Can I ask how you created this tag initially? That may point us to a way to edit it in the same manner.
Periods in tags have been disallowed for a while now. You can fix it via the rails console:
ssh in to your server, then:
./launcher enter app
tag = Tag.find_by_name("circle.yml")
If you want to fix it, take the
id returned from the above and substitute it into the
NEWNAME is whatever you want the fixed tag to be called.
Tag.where(id: ??).update(name: "NEWNAME")
Alternatively if you just want to destroy the tag click the text below, I’ve blurred it as some users have a habit of pasting blindly:
Looks like these tags are also broken:
This is a legacy tag which was created likely before the fix.
We are on a Discourse hosted plan, so I’ll ping support to resolve. Thanks all.
doesn’t it show up on the
/tags page? Ah yes, but you can’t edit it there…
