Pro 7.0.7 missing group discussion

Hi,

in seafile pro 6.3 there is a group discussion icon on the group page, where a user can start a group disscusion.
discussion1

On our test server, that I upgraded from 6.3.14 to 7.0.7 the group discussion icon is missing:
discussion2

Group discussions are enabled by default, and I explicitly enabled them in seahub_settings:

ENABLE_GROUP_DISCUSSION = True

But the icon doesn’t show up. I couldn’t find a hint in the changelog or in the server manual. Is this a bug or am I missing something?

Thanks,
Dirk

Just upgraded to 7.0.8. The group discussion icon is still missing.
To anyone running seafile pro 7: can you start a group discussion?

Hi,

I can confirm for both versions, 7.07 and 7.08, that group discussion is not available.

@daniel.pan, any feedback ?

Regards

The group discussion feature is seldom used. It has been removed in 7.0.

Hi Daniel,

that’s interesting, because some of our users have used it. The removal has not been mentioned in the changelog, and the group discussion is still described in the server manual:

# Enable group discussion. Default to `True`
# Since version 6.2.11
ENABLE_GROUP_DISCUSSION = True

And the source code is still available in version 7.0.8, for eample in

seahub/media/assets/scripts/app/views/group-discussions.js

or in

seahub/templates/js/templates.html
