I encounter the same issue as below topic. The user is neither staff nor moderator (new registered). But they can create topic without selecting a category.
Two highlights, the topics were migrated from an old site, and the “allow uncategorized topics” is checked before (I’m changing it to unchecked). In the site setting there’s a “WARNING: If there are any uncategorized topics, you must recategorize them before turning this off.” does this mean in my site there’re uncategorized topics preventing this setting working?
How can I find all uncategorized topics then? Thanks in advance.
Thanks, @Lilly@Lhc_fl I’ve moved all topics from “uncategorized” and with “allow uncategorized topics” unchecked, users can still post without selecting a category. I expect in post editor there’s placeholder text “Select a category before typing here.” and mouse pointer is disabled. Are there’s any other places I need to change?
Update - Though the composer’s placeholder doesn’t mention “have to select a category”, when I try to submit the topic, there’s a error popup to prevent me from doing. This is good but I still wonder why the placeholder text is not placed in editing composer.
