Home Page (Recent) empty for Some logged in users, NodeBB 1.4.[5,6]



  • Hello,

    Last week I updated one incase from 1.0.3 to 1.4.5, first test instance using dump and then live instance. I did ran upgrade for scheme, using versions 1.1.2, 1.2.1, 1.3.0, 1.4.5 and now with 1.4.6 (last one only in test using old dump).

    Everything seemed working fine, otherwise I wouldn't have upgraded live version, but some users have reported when logged in Home Page that is routing to recent is empty, and after doing some tests I noticed that also unread route is also empty for that person.

    Some other have reported that there is also history of private messages missing, that I haven't confirmed and that is reported only in live (using 1.4.5)

    Site uses MongoDB (3.4.3) and live site is behind Nginx, but test version does not use that.

    Make sure those users are not ignoring all categories, if a category is ignored the topics from that category does not show up in /recent and /unread.



  • All the categories where ignored for that person, but they where not before, (at least not all), was there some kind of change regarding this?

    Is there way to un-ignore to all? Then there could be post telling to people to ignore again if needed.

    As that was so "easy", any clue why history of private chat messages is not showing for some users? (for this user it does show up 😆)


  • Admin

    Not sure about the chat history, the ignored categories filtering was added after 1.0.3 so that's why users are noticing it now.



  • So I'n my opinion it is bug that it ignores categories for some people. How to delete those entries in MongoDB?
