Initial Config Issues

Just got my first Forem and am noting some of the issues I've encountered during setup that still need to be resolved:

  • I published one article (that is also 'featured'), and it is not appearing in any of the feeds

  • Every time I close the tab/window, I am automatically logged out, and this is what I see when I return:


  • I am also being automatically logged out when I navigate from /admin to the hompage.

  • Twitter login is completely broken with a 500 error.

  • The nav bar and footer logo are not updating. The correct logo shows up in onboarding, as you can see below.

  • Something's going on with my onboarding style:

These are the major issues I'm experiencing as an admin so far and it's blocking me from moving forward with my Forem!

I like the domain name! Sounds like you might be missing a load of environment variables. Where is this mighty forem being hosted? 🤓

Re styling issue on onboarding.. Unfortunately it's more than just onboarding view. Nevertheless I'm looking into a fix...

Hey, thanks for this report. It's strange and I don't know why that happens but I'm already tracking this down.

Seems like we somehow "process" one of the CSS files that is being served which makes it kinda "not working". I'm not an expert but it feels like something related to server configuration. I've already pinged folks internally to look at it.

I'll let you know when we fix it.

Haha, thanks Pawel. I believe @ben figured out the issue today! Something about the asset compilation process?
