"recent deletions" moderator tool produces error


The "recent deletions" link under mod tools is consistently returning a 500 server error for me. One reference: 2ba998b1-84b1-4675-aeb8-bebcf3465b5f

I've tried this on two sites. It's been a few days since I last accessed this tool anywhere, so I can't pin down when this behavior might have started.

Why should this post be closed?

Oooh. This looks like a funny issue.

As far as I can tell, there are two levels here:

  1. The error page contains an entry for a help center article. This isn't supposed to happen and is likely a data error. We (read: ArtOfCode) have to look at the database, whether there is somewhere an article wrongly marked as deleted.

  2. There is a naming issue with the view files. The post list attempts to reach a partial called posts/document, which would be located at app/views/posts/_document.html.erb. However, such a file doesn't exist. We only have app/views/posts/document.html.erb (mind the missing underscore). And that isn't even the file we want to show. So we should likely create an other partial and use it there. Or we could probably just assume, that this case is never needed and should not occur in production.

And fixed - fixing the data bug has removed the cause of the other error, too. ‭‮edoCfOtrA‭ 2 months ago
