@baris I'm really trying to stick to actual releases (looking at github it doesn't look like 1.17.1 has been officially blessed yet). However, staying on v1.17.0 and bumping the socket.io and socket.io-client versions seems to have done the trick!
UNSOLVED Composer Errors
One of my users on my forum ( there's only 10 people)
got the following error:
[Error] Error: Unable to load template: composer (Not Found)
error (nodebb.min.js, line 15)
u (nodebb.min.js, line 1)
fireWith (nodebb.min.js, line 1)
T (nodebb.min.js, line 3)
n (nodebb.min.js, line 3)
[Error] Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found) (composer.tpl, line 0)
and I'm trying to make sense of it , is there something I could do to fix it? It seems to have something to do with a recent update of the forum. But I'm not experiencing the error , one of my users are..... which makes it even harder to solve.
I did some investigating , cleared my own DNS / cache on my computer and I also came up with the same error that one of my users did , so it seems that it's a more complex then I thought.
I also disabled all my plugins to see if there was any interference....and the problem is still there.
Ahh for the composer to work you need the plugin
nodebb-plugin-composer-defaultmake sure thats installed and activated and you are on latest master.
It's still not working. I enabled it like you said. Previously , when it wasn't working for one of my users , that was when all the plugins were all enabled too.
edit: I renabled all plugins except for the lavender theme , and it seems to be working now - tested it on IE and chrome.
I think the lavender theme has some code that's conflicting with the composer , since it got updated recently.
