I’m preparing a new forum for launch. Self-hosted Discourse (2.6.0.beta1) on DigitalOcean (btw, I’m still amazed that you give this gem away for free). Everything worked great and all users (including myself) had avatars.
Then, at one specific moment, without any modifications of forum’s config, I refreshed the page in the browser and there were no more avatars.
Currently, topics list looks like this:
Interestingly, if I open a topic, then the “status bar” does show the avatars:
Edit: I just tried to see the forum once again in incognito mode. All avatars are gone, so I guess the fact that I saw them somewhere might have been related to caching.
However, if I open user’s profile, there is no avatar there:
Luckily, I had already started backing the data up and there aren’t many testers on the forum yet, so I hope I’ll be able to resolve this by just restoring from a backup. However, without identifying the root cause, I might just run into the same issue again.
As far as I understand, these avatars come from Gravatar.
I’m new to Discourse, so sorry in advance if there is not enough info in this report. I’ll provide any additional information per your requests.
