    When attempting to edit or add an element, no fields appear in the edit screen.

    Fabrik Rev 606
    Database Version: 5.0.41-community-nt
    Web Server: Apache/2.0.59 (Win32) DAV/2 PHP/5.2.3
    Joomla! Version: Joomla! 1.5.7

    (btw i upgraded to the latest SVN version to fix the bug where forms were not honoring the connection field for external databases (although tables were). If there's a (relatively) stable version which contains that fix could someone point it out. As it is now I can only add elements in the default install 2.0b3 but can only see forms in the last build)

    Cant replicate this issue, if you ftp the SVN files up to your site could you double check that they all got uploaded correctly. Also what version of php are you running?

    I'm working on local server (Uniform 3.5).

    I uninstalled Fabrik. Reinstalled 2.0b3. Copy/Pasted my SVN-Export folder onto the joomla tree.

    Is there any manual stuff I need to do make sure I'm cleaning everything up?
    fabrik_form_sessions table was still sitting my joomla db after uninstalling. i deleted it

    I can also expose server to web if you need access.

    Just did an uninstall-reinstall (no sample data / SVN rev 607)

    created new connection to external db
    created new table based on existing table in external db
    fabrik creates table, form, elements ok
    default table view/ form view / updates work ok
    go to elements
    click on an element name
    open editor

    What is your PHP memory limit set to?

    Does the same thing happen if you use the default site connection?

    Yes. I "imported" jos_users. Identical behavior.

    Hmm, strange.

    We usually recommend 64MB for PHP memory limit with Fabrik. But typically a memory size violation results in a totally blank, or seriously deformed page.

    But lets try upping your PHP memory limit to 64MB anyway, see if that helps.

    Have you checked your httpd error log, see if there's anything useful in there?

    Disappearing element dialog

    I had the same problem, but closing down the browser (Firefox) completely and restarting seemed to fix it, so I guess it could be a memory problem.

    Upped the limit. Restarted server. Error still occurs. Nothing suspicious in httpd logs.

    Restarting firefox did not help. HOWEVER running the page under IE7 *works*.

    BUT I refuse to run IE all the time. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this firefox / fabrik interaction. Remember: the element dialog works just fine for me with the 2.0b3 version. It's only when I drop in the latest SVN code that I have an issue.

    Update: Opening Firebug and choosing Console | Enable Console for localhost made the behavior disappear. Full dialog now appears.

    OK, if you want to set up external access and PM me a backend login, I'll see what I can see. Remember to include a link back to this thread in your PM. If you can also give us an ftp account, that'd help in case we need to upload some debug code.

    Of course, try Mike's suggestion first.

    Also, make absolutely sure you have copied everything from SVN, front end and backend. We did have a bug in a recent SVN rev which caused this, but it was fixed within a few hours. And (although it has nothing to do with this bug) make sure you 'export' your checked-out repo to a clean copy, and use that clean copy for uploading to the server, to avoid having thousands of SVN metadata files in the live site.

    Install the FireBug extension in FireFox, see if you get any JS errors.

    You and me both. And Rob. We're die hard FF folk, and only use IE for JS/CSS compatibility work. Which is what puzzles me about this - we both use FF3 99.9% of the time, and haven't seen this problem.

    You could also try temporarily disabling all your FF extensions, see if that does anything.

    Sorry, only just noticed your edit. Note that editing a post doesn't bump it, so I tend not to notice edits. So always post a separate followup rather than editing posts if you resolve an issue.

    Yes, we do sometimes leave debug code in that uses console.log if it detects FireFox.

    Bad Hugh/Rob. No Donut.

    But glad you resolved it.
