Spurious tags "_internal_username_1234" in autocompletion

  • retag add tags

Hi, suddenly my list of tag suggestions, when autocompleting the "tags" field, contains entries like this:


That is the word "_internal_", then a username, then the ID of that user.

I have thousands of users, so these tags will be suggested often.

Any idea what happened and how to fix this? I'm using Askbot's git master.

Sorry we must have forgotten to clean them up in the migrations. I'll add one soon.

Right now you can do this:

python shell 
>>>from askbot.models import Tag

Nice, thanks! I also have a tag that is the empty string. Can I delete it the same way?

Yes, delete that one too.
