A recent update added the community section to the custom links section of the sidebar, but seems to have forgotten to hide them until the feature was fully developed.
Thank you for reporting this issue.
Is your forum public? Could you give me an address? It would help me to debug what went wrong.
Thanks to @kris.kotlarek for his help, this issue has been resolved on my forum; I can’t provide details on how this bug occurred, only how I got it:
Login as site admin (my
user.id = 1)
Add an global sidbar section before update;
Update discourse-docker-manager (from_version: ad743ae11d4727847ec7666fc931f4914769349a)
Update forum using discourse-docker-manager.
from_version: f47a4e61ad8e61dd75efac7acdc9e03c94379643, f99b3af7ed4a21474f35223e83013ee3e8ad7002 repository: /var/www/discourse, /var/www/discourse/plugins/discourse-data-explorer
Possible information about the bug:
- Checked the database and found that the user_id of the new sidebar section points to me(id: 1) instead of system_user(id: -1)
- Resetting the
user_idof the Community section to
-1resolved the problem.
If anyone can reproduce this bug, maybe the above steps can help
