[SOLVED] Edit bar on pages blank after 5.6.0.1 Upgrade - Permissions?

Permalink 1 user found helpful
Hey everyone.

I have a question: I upgraded (through concrete5) to 5.6.0.1 and the edit bar on my pages are now blank unless I'm on the Dashboard. Anyone know why or how to fix it?

I have a feeling it has to do with permissions considering I threw my site into Maintenance Mode and now, when I go view any page, the maintenance page shows up, even when I'm logged in.

The only user is myself, so if it is with permissions I don't know what I should do to gain access again. Check the screenshot if you need to know what I mean by a blank edit bar.

Anyone got any ideas? Anyone else having the same problem?

Thanks in advance!

Hmmm.. I have the dashboard, everything I've messed with so far seems to work. But when I go to a page to edit it, the edit bar is blank. I have a feeling it has to do with user permissions but I don't know what else to try in those settings and considering I'm relatively new to c5, I don't wanna go into anything too far unless I know what I'm doing.

Let me give it a try...

1. Is your site still in Maintenance Mode?
If so, Maintenance Mode disables the website for *everyone* (even site admins), so you only see the maintenance message and the edit bar with the C5 logo on it.

2. Do you have *any* external javascript on your site?
If so, you might be calling jQuery twice (since C5 already calls jQuery, or some script *might* be interfering with the edit bar.

I don't see a maintenance message, only an empty bar on top.

As for jquery: I use ProEvents. In 5.5.2.1 that worked fine. The only thing I did was upgrading to 5.6.0.1

Ok. Well then disregard the Maintenance Mode part. But as you can see in the attachment of the first post, the edit bar is completely blank, no logo or anything.

Meanwhile, I tried pulling out my javascripts and sure enough, it was a double jquery (which worked before, but since the upgrade didn't work anymore).

The only thing that sucks about that is I'm using a lightbox script that doesn't work with anything newer than jquery 1.5. Lol. Guess I'll have to figure that out separately though, at least C5 works!

Thank you!

No problem, glad that solved it.
I didn't notice the screenshot before (my bad!), if I had, I would've noticed the double jQuery problem right away. Anyway, it's solved now.

C5 links to jQuery in the "header.php" file, you might want to tinker with that one and change the link to a version prior to 1.5...
I don't know if C5 relies on newer versions, but it doesn't hurt to try.

Sweet! Will do. Thank you!

Meanwhile, majorhartman, I don't think anything on the page would affect the dashboard, so it must be a script. Maybe ProEvents isn't compatible with the new version yet? Check to see if there are any ProEvents users with the same problem. I've never used it, so I'm not completely sure.

Thnx.
There is a newer version of ProEvents. In fact that is the reason I needed
to upgrade to 5.6.0.1. Didn't expect that the current version of ProEvents
does not work with the new concrete.
First thing tomorrow I'll upgrade ProEvents.

I upgraded ProEvents to its newest version, but the problem remains.

Don't know what to do now. How do I check this jquery thing?

Just to make sure, your dashboard still isn't working?

If you want to check jQuery, just looked at your source code.
Chrome and Firefox: Right Click > "View Page Source"
Internet Explorer: Right Click > "View Source"

or

if you have the source files (default.php, header.php, etc), take a look at then in a code editor.

By the way, you might want to open a new thread.

*Hello,*
*
*
*The site is using jquery; that shows in "view page source". So what should
I look for or what should I change in order to get it to work again?*
*
*
*By the way, when you refer to header.php, you mean the one with the theme
I use? That one contains near the top: *
*
<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/menu.js"></script>

Again, are you still unable to see the dashboard?

About the jQuery, check if it's doubled (if you call the jQuery script on your theme files), or if some external jQuery is added to the page that might interfere with the basic C5 functionality.

It might be easier for me to take a look at the code. If you wish to do this, feel free to PM me.

Every time I tried to edit my site, the WYSIWYG editor would appear as a blank white page and I couldn't do anything from there except hit the back button and go back to the previous page. I re-installed concrete5 twice, still no luck. After THREE days, I found your post and sure enough, the problem was two different instances of calling Jquery. Reinstalling concrete5 did not solve my problem because I was still using the same files that I had created my theme with, and THAT's where the extra Jquery was being called.

Thanks so much for bringing this to my attention!!!!!

I'm glad this thread helped you.

It's a problem most of us face, since we don't know or tend to forget that C5 already calls jQuery... but it's a trial and error thing, you learn something new everyday. :)

Did you scan your theme files for

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/jquery.js"></script>

?

I had a similar thing and solved it by removing that line.

CGCommunicatie replied on at Permalink Reply
I guess this happens when you're logged in?

Still no reaction from the developer?

I'm afraid I cannot help you.

I solved my own problem by rebuilding the site from scratch.
