Unnecessary information for users

  1. If the user does not set a mandatory tag - forum shows him a set of errors.

    Should be left only: "An exception occurred: This content must have at least 1 tag(s)."
    Is not that right ?

    There are (or should be) two things at play here:
    1. The backtrace will only be shown if you're an admin or have debug enabled.
    2. That isn't normally how that type of exception is triggered. We have seen this with some old versions of PHP, with certain combinations of PHP extensions. I haven't seen it for a while, but I believe it may be down to opcode caching with optimization?
     
  3. So, it turns out that users do not receive notification of the mandatory tag. It misleads them.

  4. It may be best to freeze the "Create Thread" button until all required fields will not be filled?

    The exception should not be occurring in the first place. Users are notified about missing fields through a different mechanism.
