Body is too similar to what you recently posted

The site is currently not allowing minor edits to posts (e.g. correction of typos).

If you try to do this you get the following message and are blocked from making the edit:

Looks like a bug has been introduced to the latest version of Discourse, which we upgraded to last night.

One of the downsides of taking the community edition, over a paid version with support, is there are occasional bugs.

This will likely be fixed today. As soon as there is an update, I will apply it.


It’s no Biggie Liam. Thanks for providing the forum out of your own pocket

I have rebuilt the app with latest commits from the Discourse Git repository.

Can anyone confirm whether this issue is still there?

Was that the 502 Error just now?

It was.
I think I might create a basic ‘under maintenance’ page I can switch on for the next time I need to update Discourse.

It took longer to rebuilt than I had expected.

Where is the fun in that, we would have nothing to comment on if we know the reason its down!
