Cidi Labs is aware of this bug and are working on a fix. The problem appears to be limited to new discussion topics (announcements and discussions). We have not been able to figure out exactly why it is failing sometimes on these new items, but the development team will continue to dig until we can find a solution.
For now, when this issue occurs, you can:
- Refresh the page; the sidebar loads correctly roughly 1 in 4 times.
- Click Save and then click Edit and the sidebar will load correctly. When you do this, please note:
- For announcements, be sure to select the Delay Posting option so it doesn't immediately go out to students
- For discussions, do not click Save & Publish so it doesn't appear for students.
We will post any updates related to this issue on the release notes in the Admin Guide.
