Warning: The System - Fields plugin is disabled. Custom fields will not display until you enable this plugin.

Post by megseoh » Thu Sep 21, 2017 5:53 pm

I would like to set up some custom fields but am not able to & I get this error message:

Warning
The System - Fields plugin is disabled. Custom fields will not display until you enable this plugin.

'System - Fields' links to the plugin & when I navigate there it shows that it is enabled.

I click Save & navigate back to the custom fields but the error message persists.

When I search for 'System - Fields' in the Plugins directory, it is not there.

Please help me troubleshoot this. Many thanks :)

It looks correct.
search for "fields"
look thru the list and check it and also be sure the other fields plugins are enabled
There may be another issue but i would start here

In some cases the 'System - Fields' plugin was not installed. I am running the latest version of Joomla 3.8.0.

I had to go to Extensions > Manage > Discover to install all of the custom field components before I could activate them in Extensions > Manage [select those that apply] > Enable.

There is 1 component & at least 16 plugins that need to be activated in order to get rid of the error message & for custom fields to work properly.

If its working properly, good.
Others do not seem to be reporting this issue, i would suspect it was a glitch in your upgrade
