NodeJS - 6.11.1
NodeBB - 1.5.2
NPM - 5.3.0
Redis - 4.0.0
CentOS - 6.9
I seem to have a problem with the composer-default plugin. I cannot create or reply to posts.
NodeBB logs show the following warning:
"[plugins/load] The following plugins may not be compatible with your version of NodeBB. This may cause unintended behaviour or crash$
When I click "New Topic", I see the following error in the console:
"nodebb.min.js:1 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'length' of null
at HTMLDocument.<anonymous> (nodebb.min.js:1)
at l (nodebb.min.js:1)
at u (nodebb.min.js:1)"
Any idea what the problem is? I've tried reloading / restarting / building NodeBB without success.
That's not your NodeBB version, that's your Node.js version. What is your NodeBB version?
@pitaj Sorry yes, was on autopilot.
NodeBB version is 1.5.2, have edited the original OP for clarity.
What version is nodebb-plugin-composer-default?
Try these things:
- Try resetting extra plugins
Composer version is 5.0.2.
No change unfortunately after those steps. Once I'd reset plugins I just re-enabled composer to test but the same issue persists.
Still battling with this issue. Seems likely it's to do with the version mismatch for composer vs NodeBB, as advised in the logs.
Not really sure why there would be a version mismatch on a plugin which (as far as I know) is bundled with the NodeBB install. If it is the wrong version I'm not sure which is the right one either.
@btc What branch of the git repository are you on?
git statusshould say "On branch [branch name]". Try running
git pull, then
./nodebb upgradeand restart.
@pitaj Sorry for the delay, I wasn't getting reply notifications.
I'm on the master branch of the git repository.
Git pull gives an error: "error: Your local changes to 'package.json' would be overwritten by merge. Aborting."
I haven't made any changes to that file.
The issue still exists following ./nodebb upgrade.
npm install --savemodifies package.json, so that's probably what changed it. Run
git reset --hard origin/masterto both reset package.json and to pull the latest changes on the master branch.
Thanks so much, that has worked and I can now post new topics and replies.
However I now have another issue but I think it's unrelated so will start a new thread.
