Format editor and smileys are gone!
« on: February 21, 2019, 03:54:53 PM »
In my quick reply and when you either start a new thread or click reply, the format editor and BBC code buttons, along with all smileys have disappeared.

Has anyone seen something like this before? I have attached a picture below.

I have done NO mods to any files in my software and it is not just a User Profile issue - all of our users are seeing this.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Does your browsers inspection console show any conflicts, eg, javascript clashes?

It does not.

I have another board running the same SMF software and it is fine - although it is on a different server.

Presumably you're running the RC1 version of 2.1?

There is no RC3, did you means Beta 3?

Try using the official RC1

Anyone have an idea of what to try?

So you did the full upgrade to the release version of RC1 ?
Copying the new files over the old, running upgrade.php etc? Usual stuff.

<scratches head>  hmmm

Hmm, do you have the "Enable bulletin board code (BBC) " setting checked?  If not the editor won't show.

Shouldn't 2.1 have a similar option?

Hey Everyone, sorry for the delays in replying back to you all. I did not have the notifications box checked on this topic and I forgot to return to it to see if there was help provided.

Does your browsers inspection console show any conflicts, eg, javascript clashes?

These are new error reports that are showing up now:

Do you have a test account we can use?

Also hi from Cincinnati :)

I do not have a test account active, but I can create one if you are still available to help - and hello from Columbus!  ;D

Isn't there an option that disables the toolbar inside the admin settings? I remember is being in themes

Hmm, do you have the "Enable bulletin board code (BBC) " setting checked?  If not the editor won't show.

Admin > Features and options > Bulletin Board Code >>  Enable bulletin board code (BBC)

Under my Admin - yes, the BBC is enabled and under my user profile I have the Use Full Editor toolbar in quick reply checked, as well.

lurk, open the posting window with js disabled and compare to op's screenshot.

I run my board in Google Chrome - I am not sure if JS is ever enabled unless requested.

To add to the mystery, here is a new issue that just came up when I went to search my database... (image attached).

So you did the full upgrade to the release version of RC1 ?
Copying the new files over the old, running upgrade.php etc? Usual stuff.

<scratches head>  hmmm

I chose and downloaded the RC 1 Large upgrade. Do you think I should download the Full Install and write over all of the files?

THANKS IN ADVANCE!

Can I upload a brand new copy of SMF into a folder (named as the old) and tie my old database to it?

1- do not use the full install. That will overwrite things that you don't want overwritten.

2- you could... although you'd have to go change all of the settings, paths and urls to point to your new location and you'd lose all of your avatars and attachments.

I did a full upgrade and the format editor is still gone.

I now can no longer search my site for info without getting a database error (picture above).

I don't know what else to do.

I didn't know if I change the name of the old folder on the my webhost server and then create a new folder with the same name and install to there, if I could set it up to attach to the database with all things there?

Could any of this be because I updated my PHP to 7.2?

Ok, so it has nothing to do with PHP.

I'm assuming it's a bug. I logged in, made such WYSIWYG editor was enabled. All settings related to WYSIWYG editor are checked, yet for some reason it's not appearing. It has to be a bug related to 2.1.

A second suggestion would be to find a random theme, install it, and see if the WYSIWYG editor appears.

any errors in the browser console?

So I am thinking about just starting a new forum board. Do you think I should go through the trouble of moving all the active pieces over to a new forum, or are these challenges fixable?

Again, thanks for your help!

Okay - following your advice, I added a 2.1 RC1 compatible theme to the board and nothing has happened. The Post Editor is still not present, so I am defaulting to your idea it might be a bug.

Is there a way I can RESIGN in to the database, as it appears to be asking?

Thanks!

I just did a brand new build and here is the result (picture attached).

Is this a database issue now? Do I need to create an all new database? Is it possible the new installer package is broken?

I can't explain this at all. I have two boards - this one which I run for my office and another that I use for gaming. The gaming board is running great - all of my mods (none of which I do for my business board) working great!

Thanks for the help!

Thank you! I corrected this challenge on the new board, but still no Post Editor on a brand new install.

Also, if I do a search on the new forum it gives me the same database error - so I either have a corrupted database, or there is some setting I need to update to give the forum software permission to access the data...which it seems it does seeing as you can see the posts!

Anyway, I will wait a little longer for any advice before I just create a new database on my web server and build the site one more time.

Thanks everyone!
