Articles and Custom Modules Won't Open

Post by TaylorCTU » Wed May 30, 2018 5:31 pm

When I try to open an article or custom module it opens the link but the page is a blank white screen.

Cleared browser cache.
Cleared Joomla cache.
Tried in ie, firefox, and Chrome.

Change error reporting from default to development and tell us the error that you have in this blank page

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'class' (T_CLASS), expecting identifier (T_STRING) or variable (T_VARIABLE) or '{' or '$' in /home/mcc1967/public_html/libraries/regularlabs/src/EditorButton.php on line 125


Articles anywhere had an update this morning.

Reverted back to the older version and replaced the editorbutton.php file. Seems to be working fine now.

Very old php version and EOL. I tried joomla 3.8.8 with tinymce, with articles anywhere 7.6.0 and php versions 7.1.18 and 7.0.30 without any issue. I suggest you to use the latest php version of php 7.1(7.1.18 now). It s also much faster.

I just began experiencing this today, though it may have been an issue earlier - I just haven't been on the site in a few days.

I'm using PHP 7.0.30. When I go to Global Configuration and set Error Reporting to Development, but it does not seem to matter - I still get a completely blank page when I click on Content -> Articles, Extensions -> Modules.

Articles -> Featured Articles opens, and I'm able to open an article only when I check the box next to it and click the Edit button at the top - not when I click the article name directly. Once open, I cannot save edits to them - I just get a blank page.

With error reporting not returning anything, I'm lost.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Ernie

I scrolled through Plug-Ins and Extensions looking for things which might have caused this and it seems that it was ACL Manager - at least all the functionality for editing articles and modules was restored when I uninstalled it. It was replaced by PWT ACL, and I had both installed simultaneously.

But I'm sure others would like to know how to get Error Reporting results to show up in Development mode - that would have saved me a lot of time and guesswork.

Thank you,
Ernie
