Cancel, Submit, Edit buttons in administation don't work

Postby alicew » Sat Apr 05, 2008 12:33 pm

Hi,
In administration the Cancel, Submit, Edit, etc. Do not work.
I checked with firebug and the onsubmit() function is sending undefined.
There must be some files whichave not updated correctly.
Which files do I need to look at to fix this? Any ideas?

Thanks!

You could try uploading all the core files again and just overwriting the old ones. Just skip the installation folder.

Do you use Internet Explorer of Firefox?
Sometimes you need to set www to $mosConfig_live_site in you configuration.php

If you're conguration $mosConfig_live_site looks like this:

Code: Select all

$mosConfig_live_site = 'http://yourdomain.com';

Try this once, for me it worked a few times allready:

Code: Select all

$mosConfig_live_site = 'http://www.yourdomain.com';

Could you check if all necessary Joomla files are available (and not corrupted) on the server?
Joomla Diagnostics is a helpful tool to check that:
http://extensions.joomla.org/component/ ... Itemid,35/
This tool does not need to be installed via the Joomla installer in the back-end:
  • Download the diagnostics for your Joomla version
  • Unzip the download
  • Upload both files to your Joomla root (where the index.php / configuration.php also are)
  • Run the diagnostics tool by opening the file in your browser, e.g. http://www.example.com/diagnostics.php

Well,
I'm new to Joomla. But like the structure of it. I use 1.5.
I have had troubles the last week with the TinyMCE 2.0 editor. Frustrating! It all worked fine when starting it up, but then, sudenly, it did not work. :(
I tried the hole package (db and files) on a different server, with no changes, and it worked perfect. According to my webhost provider, they have not changed any tning...
Have looked at the forum here and tried most any thing, uppgrading, studied code. Even the last tip, diagnostics.php, and I got the message "File is corrupted or has been altered" at every single row. This without "touching" anything. :eek:
Nice script how ever.
I started to download a new package to do the nasty job again, reinstall the hole thing... :'(
When it strock me, lets try another editor, just in case.
I loaded the JCE editor. The JCE editor is in beta face, but it works! Now I can edit and save my work again. ;D
But, when swiching back to Tiny, it still dont work.
I hope, that I not end up in trouble again. Hope this will help some one more.

I'm a newbye and I tried to install the tool; I'm using windows vista home. It cannot create a file with the same name of a folder when extracting the tool. I tried to rename the folder and use the rpwser to go to the linkwith the .../diagnostics.php and... no results.

How fix it please?

Try using winZip to unzip the file. Should work okay, but with Vista all bets are off.

If cant edit or add a category or section then the software is totally useless and i've just wasted 3 days of work

Kingabaloo what events led up to this problem for you? Did you have a working installation at one time? Did you upgrade something? Give me some more details k?

chriscroome, disable your WYSIWYG editor in the J! user manager for your account. See if that has any effect.

The admin page that has the option to do this has the same javascript buttons that don't work.

What do I need to change at the database level to disable the WYSIWYG editor for a user?

Ohhh. that makes things difficult doesn't it.

Um before you try the database change, go the plugins and disable the WYSIWYG editor (tinyMCE). Leave No WYSIWYG enabled. I think by disabling the main one it'll automatically pick the other.

However, since this problem exists outside of the content editor, I have a feeling that disabling WYSIWYG isn't going to change anything. Hmmm.

Can you confirm that this problem exists on other computers as well?

Well, I can't use the web interface to edit this because the buttons don't work, but I edited configuration.php and removed the WYSIWYG editor, but this made no difference to the non-functioning admin interface...

There is the same problem with Opera as with Firefox.

But, perhaps I can do the upgrade to 1.5 without using the web interface -- is there any pointers anywhere how to do this, I'm actually happier doing SQL and editing text files on the server than I am coping with non-functioning javascript dependent web interfaces....

I was under the impression that it was just the Save, Apply, and Edit buttons. You're confusing me. What exactly is not working correctly?

What happens on a different machine entirely?

Getting to 1.5 is much more than upgrading. It's a migration. But there is a ton of help on it. Here's a help document on it:

There is also a lack of a way that I can find to install the Migrator extension, see:

viewtopic.php?f=36&t=445877

But perhaps I just don't know where to look?

Yes, the same problem, in fact I think that *all* the javsscript functionality is missing.

Yes, I've been trying to follow this but I'm stuck at trying to install the Migrator component and I think it's because I don't have the admin menu because I have a admin interface in which javascript isn't working...

Thanks for your help, I'm going to investigate the javascript problem...

Other people have had the same kind of problem:

viewtopic.php?f=57&t=295108
