[Solved] Cannot send any personal messages

I cannot send any personal messages any more. Tested on Firefox and Chromium. Logging in and out was tried.

While the message recipients line and subject line appear, beneath those there’s just blank space. I’d expect the message body and a button or two there (“send”, “close” or the like), but no. I was only able to get rid of the broken message composer by clicking “+” and then “new topic” and then “discard” that new topic.

Apparently composing comments or threads works just fine.

Is that just my user account or is everyone affected?

as at 4am UTC 30aug, I tried a test pm to you on edge and safari - but got the same problem.

I encounter no issue in Chrome, Firefox and Edge.

Is it still happening to you?
Is there any error message in the javascript console of your browser (F12, “console” tab)?

Same issue there (Firefox 104.0, Ubuntu 22.04):

There are 2 errors in the web console:

Uncaught (in promise) TypeError: document.getElementsByClassName(...)[0] is undefined

I’ve purged the cache from the CDN just in case.

Do you still have the error? Can you try maybe to delete your browser’s cache, or delete your unicyclist.com cookies?

Do you have any very specific way to reproduce the issue?

If you go to https://unicyclist.com/?safe_mode=no_themes and then try to send a personal message (don’t open a new tab, just navigate in the same tab so the safe mode remains activated), does the error occur?


I doubt this is the issue, but I just updated the forum’s software just in case.

I have the same problem. I recently updated my password to get back on the site after several years away.

I cleared all my history, cache, etc. for a different issue yesterday but still can’t send a PM.

I’ve found the issue. It’s because of a custom code I made for the forum that doesn’t work properly anymore since a recent software update. I’ve disabled this piece of code and I’ll work on it. In the meantime, the “tag” field will appear when you create a new topic. Just don’t pay attention. :smile:

I’m working on it, so direct message won’t work for now (but replying by email will work fine).
