Vanilla 3.3 -- Fatal Error when trying to create or edit Categories

Hi,

I have a fresh Vanilla 3.3 installation. Everything seems to work OK, but when I try to add a new category or edit an existing one (i.e. the default General category), I get the fatal error "Something has gone wrong".

I'm using PHP7.4 now, but the issue was the same with PHP7.2. I can see here that another user has similar issues on a similar configuration. Any help or hints would be very appreciated. Thanks!

Here's the debugging output + system info:

Fatal Error in Twig\ExpressionParser.parsePrimaryExpression();

Unexpected operator of value "=". Did you try to use "===" or "!==" for strict comparison? Use "is same as(value)" instead.

The error occurred on or near: /var/www/vanilla/applications/vanilla/views/vanillasettings/editcategory.twig

62:     {{ form.imageUploadPreview(
63:         'Photo',
64:         t('Photo'),
65:         '',
66:         category.CategoryID !== null ? 'vanilla/settings/deletecategoryphoto/' ~ category.CategoryID : ''
67:     ) }}
68: 
69:     {#
70:         // Extended fields may be defined through some addon.

    Please have a look if there is also a editcategory.php file in the same folder. If yes, delete the twig file

    I have reported that some months ago: https://github.com/vanilla/vanilla/issues/10106


    Not sure if it makes sense to use the current editcategory.twig, but that's what would try

  • @R_J thank you so much for your help! Problem solved.

    I don't have the editcategory.php file, but I replaced line 66 in the editcategory.twig file:

    category.CategoryID !== null ? 'vanilla/settings/deletecategoryphoto/' ~ category.CategoryID : ''

    with this line:

    category.CategoryID is defined ? 'vanilla/settings/deletecategoryphoto/' ~ category.CategoryID : ''
