Orphan Black comment posts are missing (again)


Two (three?) of the last Orphan Black TV recaps have broken Comment links. I get it that there might be bugs in Discourse/BB, but isn’t there anyone minding the store to notice these things? My favorite part of the recaps is the discussion amongst fellow BB readers.

Please fix. Thanks.


You mean this one

I see s2e3 has a recap on bbs with the first post author showing as @beschizza. Any recent changes to the first post author on these from the WP side Rob?


I have to create a thread for that author each time – they’re not appearing automatically. (and sometimes I forget)


Thank you.


Yes, that one and I think also S2E6, but @beschizza seems to have answered my question. Not sure where the problem lies, but please fix. Thanks.


Does the author need an account here on bbs?


@beschizza: bump


Latest is also missing proper link. Did a search for “orphan black” and found this post, and a couple from previous episodes, but seems a bunch are missing.


I thought that authors in WP didn’t need to have discourse-side accounts – it works for several others! This seems to be a problem specific to Caroline’s account.


Is there anything different about these WP posts? Titles, method of entry, method of publication, username, etc?


Could this be cause @CarolineSiede has no permissions to post in the Boing category?


I think it’s a sign of Boing Boing’s hatred of Canada.


Nothing that I know of. She just uses wordpress to set up the post, and I hit publish!

@sam Maybe! How would I fix that?


Edit the category:

Then edit the group membership of guest_authors, via /admin/groups.

I added her to the guest_authors group, let’s see if that helps.


If all she writes are Orphan Black recaps, you’re going to be waiting a while…


Just testing out my posting abilities here to make sure everything’s working!


Can you try creating a topic in the Boing category and then flag it for deletion?


Just created a test post and flagged it!


Looks like someone added you to moderators,

Also looks like it all started working :slight_smile: :slight_smile:
