TL4 "Rebuild HTML" Appears to do Nothing


I have a post on my home forum that has an odd mismatch between the baked text and the raw post, probably because of an edit made during the grace period.



Since I’m TL4 over there, I tried using the “Rebuild HTML” command to fix this mismatch, but 20 minutes later, nothing has changed.

I wonder if rebuild html is not working for TL4 and is a staff function, can @PJH confirm the rebuild fails for him as well.

(no reason for it to be a TL4 only function we can change that)

Yes @techapj can you check into this? I don’t know that TL4 needs this ability, though. I don’t oppose it or anything but is it necessary?

(Sam Saffron) #4

I think it is reasonable, there are quite a few cases where raw/cooked differs and allowing TL4 to fix this up lessens moderator load.

I’d be alright with TL 4 having the Rebuild ability. I don’t see how they could harm anything with it… (plus they should be considered well trusted by that point…)

Not at the moment - we’re getting 5xx errors again…

Confirming my TL4 couldn’t rebuild HTML. Mod-only could. Obviously I couldn’t test Admin-only…

Yes, this was a TL4 only issue, fixed :ant:
