Steps to Reproduce

  • Create event
  • Allow for RSVP
  • RSVP to event with user1
  • Delete user1

After user1 has been deleted, you get 404 on all pages which loads the post with the deleted user;

  • The post
  • Frontpage (if applicable)
  • Category/tag page

All other pages w/o the specific post renders correct as usual


I have been forced to disable the plugin as it renders the site unusable

By delete you mean delete the user from the system?

The issue is fixed but is on a different branch. You can go ahead and use that one as its close to being merged. its named server-refactor


Thank you so much for looking into this so quickly!

I have tested and unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to work in my end. I have done the following;

  • Rebuilt discourse with - git clone https://github.com/paviliondev/discourse-events.git -b "server-refactor"
  • Confirmed I have discourse-events 0d40792 installed
  • Rebaked all posts

However, I still get 404/white pages when visiting pages with events containing RSVP from deleted users

My bad. I’ve fixed the issue for when the user is deleted. And in your case the user is already deleted.

For now, I can fix the issue if you can give me temporary shell access of your server.

Wow. Thank you for even considering helping like this Faizaan :heart: I have no problem waiting if you plan to implement a fix in the codebase.

With that said, I will DM instructions to access the server with root access. However you decide, please inform when I can remove the user.

I can confirm that the issue has been resolved - thank you so much @fzngagan! :pray: :100: :tada:
