FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Here we try to answer some common questions and pitfalls about FlaskBB.

  • Why do I get a AttributeError: 'NullTranslations' object has no attribute 'add' exception?

    This usually happens when you forgot to compile the translations. To compile them, just run:

    $ flaskbb translations compile

    Relevant issue: #389

  • Why isn’t the cache (Flask-Caching) using the configured REDIS_URL?

    You have to set the CACHE_REDIS_HOST to the REDIS_URL. This is inconvenience is caused because you are not limited to redis as the caching backend. See the Flask-Caching documentation for a full list of caching backends.
