I installed Rockets and everything seems to load except the Forum


When I click on the Forum link, I get

ERR: list or string expected : nil

Ran the setup script, did the chowns/etc, got registration working.

Any quick thoughts on what to try?

Running Debian Testing newLISP v.10.7.0.

If the forums aren't working it's very likely a database problem, which could be a permissions issue (I know you've done the chowns, but maybe check again?)

I'm having the same problems on a clean install on Ubuntu 18.0.4 LTS. I'm currently fixing the issue and I'll let you know when it's done.

Okay, I figured out what it was! There was an error that didn't occur under previous versions of newlisp. If you were trying to find a string in a nil element, the find function used to return nil, but now it returns an error.

I added a check to see if the offending string was nil to begin with and bypassed that search. If you download the new version of rockets-forum.lsp from the GitHub repo, it should work now.

Bumping to check the new forum sorting by last post date...
