Urgent, can't create new Topics


(Lutz Biermann) #1

After updating to latest, I can’t create new Topics in my forum.
I got this updates. I did a rebuild from the console (./launcher rebuild app).

Everything else, beside creating new topics seems to work!

NoMethodError (undefined method `created_at' for nil:NilClass)
/var/www/discourse/app/models/topic.rb:973:in `set_or_create_status_update'

I can repro this issue. Fixing it now.


(Jan Doberstein) #3

I have noticed that if you had updated to the last release the everyone role might override other permissions.

As I had to fix this in my own live environment I’m not able to search deeper. But I notice that after I had removed everyone or had given everyone full rights it is working again.

That reminds me, that I want to go on the stable branch for the Live environment …


(Lutz Biermann) #4

Ok, I found a quick workarround: It only happens if the Category has “Auto-close” and “Don’t close until…” active. If you disable “Don’t close until” it works.

Thanks for reporting this issue @Lutz :thumbsup:


(Lutz Biermann) #6

It works! Thanks for the quick fix!


(Robin Ward) #7

Any idea why the tests suite didn’t catch this? Not being able to post is quite severe, so if there is a code path being visited we should make sure it’s tested.

Good point. I added a test case for it via:
