@staff is the Cloudron Discourse app package coded to only expect github repositories in the format https://github.com/org/repository/ or is it Discourse itself expecting that format? or is there some other problem?
(aside: I guess these posts about installing the chat plugin should be moved to their own thread given it's nothing to do with Discourse 3.0)
My guess: Discourse itself is expecting https://github.com/org/repository/ but in Discourse 3.0 this isn't a plugin that needs installing and is just part of Discourse itself, and so until we get Discourse 3.0 on Cloudron (which we can't have until Cloudron 7.4 because it needs Redis 6.2 or above) we can't use this plugin 😞
Although I guess you could try using the old repo https://github.com/discourse/discourse-chat 🤷 that might still work, but I wouldn't bet on it (although it was only just archived this month and was most recently updated in Nov last year, so could possibly maybe still work?)
(so maybe these posts about the Discourse Chat plugin don't need to move to their own thread because it kinda is directly related to 3.0)
@LoudLemur use a different browser, Firefox may have this issue with certain plugins.
thanks. using a chromium based browser did indeed solve this issue. there is something similar to this if you try and view windy.com in a mozilla browser, the animated wind arrows just disappear and it is streaks of lines across the map.
the whole interent seems to be degenerating into a 'only usable in google products' hell-hole.
