"Save as Copy" gone after updating to 3.3.4

Post by bongo128 » Tue Sep 23, 2014 2:54 pm

Save as copy button is gone after updating 3.3.3 to 3.3.4.Got some Versions button instead. Tried updating again - no use. Looked for the button elsewhere - couldn't find it. Any ideas?

Javascript files may have changed. As part of the upgrade, it is advisable to clear the cache in both the server and the browser. Have you tried that?

Yes, I've cleared the cache and the problem persists.

Same problem here. Lovely. I need to update some pages, and now can't save as copy. The Save as Copy is present when editing menu items, but not articles.

You are right, that button disappeared after the upgrade and reloading the page does not help.

Does it help if you select the article first and click Batch, then copy the article?

It's a work-around, but not convenient. We need the Save as Copy and Save + New buttons back.

The same happens with the modules...

Save as a Copy and Save & New buttons are missing

Solution:

Open the file: libraries/cms/helper/content.php

Goto Line 119 - 124 and delete the following

Code: Select all

		if (empty($section))
		{
			$section = 'component';
		}

		$actions = JAccess::getActionsFromFile($path, "/access/section[@name='" . $section . "']/");
Now on line 119 add:

Code: Select all

$actions = JAccess::getActionsFromFile($path, "/access/section[@name='component']/");

Replace libraries/cms/helper/content.php with the one from 3.3.3 till they solved the issue.

how close are we to a new upgrade to fix this issue?
It seems that the cause and a fix are well understood. Shouldn't 3.3.5 be on its way out by now?
