The issue you are facing:
With “Polls” (V 5.3.0) I can no longer create public links… I systematically get the following error: “Error adding a public link”.

The “Logging” application doesn’t indicate any error, I’ve cleared my browser’s cache. Note that I’ve just upgraded from Polls 5.2.0 to 5.3.0.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Yes

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Create a new poll
  2. Put some informations
  3. Click on “Add a new public link”

The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:

Output errors in nextcloud.log in /var/www/ or as admin user in top right menu, filtering for errors. Use a pastebin service if necessary.
