Two community sections in the sidebar

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 = 1 )

  • Add an global sidbar section before update;

  • Update discourse-docker-manager (from_version: ad743ae11d4727847ec7666fc931f4914769349a)

  • Update forum using discourse-docker-manager.

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_id of the Community section to -1 resolved the problem.

If anyone can reproduce this bug, maybe the above steps can help
