I cannot add or change topics. The "Add topic" button dissappeared entirely for me.
Tried current versions of firefox, chrome, chromium under Ubuntu 16.04.
Same for me - any private repos in my organisation can no longer see the topics button. I can still add them through the settings -> manage topics option for the org. Very odd!!
Indeed, the button only dissappeared for me in private repos, public still works as before. However, even in private repos, in my case I cannot even use "settings -> manage", I don't have such an option.
Thanks for reaching out! I wanted to let you know that as a result of feedback such as yours, we have reverted this change, topics should be back on now. Apologies for any inconvenience this caused, and thank you for coming here with your feedback.

Is there still something goin on with this? In repos with some topics set it seems to work as expected but in a repo with no topics when I click "Manage topics" I seem to get the little github icon with a rotating "progress" ring endlessly.
@AndreaGriffiths11is this a known issue that's being worked on?
I just tested on a totally different system with Chrome and it still doesn't seem to get anywhere.
It just keeps going round and round and round, I've left it for up to 5min. It never does anything.....
