"Unfortunately, an error has occurred." when creating an event

in-progress

#1

I got a blank dropdown list for the “Event group:” when creating a new event,
it then, of course, fails with a 500:

This is kind-of urgent since I forgot to publicise the event & it’s on Sunday.

Sorry,
Dave.

Hi @Dave,

This is a new one for me, how strange!
Which browser are you using? Can you post a screenshot of the blank dropdown?


#3

Thanks @james. It’s on MacOS with both Chrome & Safari (both recent versions).

I haven’t posted an event in ages (if ever) so it could be something to do with my account, which I remember we had some teething problems with.

Thanks.


#4

Any chance you could slap the event up for me in the interim @james?

Thanks.

Hmm, odd!

Given the event is so soon, I think a quick 'n dirty workaround might be in order.
If you post the details of the event here, I can then create the event for you, make you host and then remove myself.

Sound okay?

James

Ha! Beat me to it - okay, let’s give that a go…


#7

Molte grazie. —> “Post must be at least 20 characters” bah!


#8

Haha :wink:

Okay, done: https://restarters.net/party/view/738

All done.

Interestingly, the Event group dropdown works fine when I edit the event?!?


#10

Great - glad it’s sorted!

But this bug is something we need to look into.

@neil - tagging you for reference :wink:


#11

Thanks @james - we’ll look into this ASAP @Dave so the group selector is working for you on event creation.

Quick side question for you both - in your opinion, as a host, is it actually of any use to be able to edit the group in the Edit Event page? It’s probably only useful in times of error. I guess it doesn’t hurt to have it there, so long as it doesn’t cause any confusion.


#12

I’m not sure it’s strictly needed given the current user journey is to navigate to the group’s page and create an event from there. Then again, I agree that as long as it’s not confusing (and does work), it doesn’t hurt to have it
