Trust_level default name?

I notice when I go to the flair dropdown, the default “trust_level_x” name is shown.

I understand how to override text and I’ve done so here :

Which is correctly applied here, on the groups page

Am I missing another text field to override?

I guess that the flairs are on the automatic trust_level_x groups. If so the flair name will be of the name of the group.

trust_level_0 shows up correctly as “Rookie”. Maybe I changed another setting for that group without realizing it. But assuming I didn’t, the behavior here seems inconsistent between the default groups

This still seems to be persistent. Any solutions?

I’ve just had a quick go myself, and changed trust_level_0 to ‘Derek’. However, on the Groups page I notice it is still nestled in with trust_level_1, etc in alphabetical order which suggests that the name hasn’t changed, only the full name. It doesn’t appear that the name can be changed from the Group settings page in the same way as manually created groups.

I’ll have a search based on this, but it may be that this cannot be changed without breaking underlying things.

Hmm, but you did Trust_level_0 yourself. I’ll add that into the mix.

@scottmastro I can’t find anything so far in Search, nor through the UI. Before I dive deeper, I should check if you did ‘Rookie’ by using the rails console?

Extra info:

This topic seems to have achieved inconsistent results too:

I tried Rookie, and Padawan bit mine don’t change successfully. I wonder what I’m missing?

I can’t guarantee that I didn’t do that but I have no recollection of changing it from the console.

My forum was imported through a custom script. Maybe that’s a potential explanation? But I don’t believe I specified the name Rookie anywhere but the website UI

Okay, I have had some luck. If I change a trust_level group name and then go to /sidekiq and run Jobs::EnsureDbConsistency that changes the slug for me. :+1:

I will continue testing it out to see if I can do it consistently.


I can do this consistently. :+1: And the new slugs show up in the Flair menu:


Does this work for you too? My initial confusion was obviously based on impatience. :slightly_smiling_face: I think if I had left my changes in place until that sidekiq job had run as part of its regular schedule then it would have all happened automagically…

I really appreciate the thorough experimentation! Ill be sure to test this out on my site and let you know if it works
