Can't edit Articles in Joomla on a local server

Post by mpceschini » Tue Apr 02, 2024 3:42 pm

When I click on an Article in Joomla that has already been published to edit it all I get is a blank window with the word Article in the upper left had corner. I can't see the text that is there or add any new text. This seems to have happened after I did the latest updates or when I installed Breezing form component. I have uninstalled Breezing forms, but I still can't see or edit any text in all my Articles. I am using Joomla 5.0.3 and this is the back end that I can not edit the Articles. Help!

Have you cleared the site's cache and the expired cache?

Yes I cleared the Cache and it didn't help. It seems like the editor is missing. The Window with the editor is missing.

The issue may be caused by javascript errors. Load Developer Tools (F12) on the blank page and check if there are error messages highlighted in red in the Console tab.

It is possible that some parts of BreezingForms (BF), for example plugins, still remain in the system and cause the issue. Please post the results from the Forum Post Assistant (FPA) by following the instructions at https://forumpostassistant.github.io/docs/ so that the configuration can be reviewed.

According to the JED entry, BreezingForms is compatible with Joomla 4. Based on information gleaned from the BF forum, a version for Joomla 5 is in Beta stage of development.

MariaDB = 10.6.5
MySQL = 8.0.27
Which is it? Can’t be both.
