Add block not working after update
I purchased my theme from the marketplace and have another site that uses the default theme. The add blocks on the default theme work fine but since the update my purchased theme is useless without the ability to add new content.
Can you debug PHP code by using Netbeans, for instance?
Did you read the PHP log?
Just some ideas.
Can you instruct me in how to update a new block? Perhaps I can try that first?
First of all, you should make sure that the new block was added, but for some reason the spinning thing got frozen. If it happens, well, maybe refreshing your browser and the new block comes up!
Netbeans is a development environment: netbeans.org
If you install and use Netbeans you can run Concrete step by step, and find out why it fails.
And the PHP log can be enabled by editing the server configuration, usually the php.ini file, "error_log" entry
I have refreshed several times but that doesn't work. I'll try your other suggestions and see if that works.
Thank you so much for your help... all I want to do is add content using a block... help oh help oh help pleeeease! LOL!
can have issues with this
Strangely, I have another site with a different theme and don't have any problems adding a block. I've cleared caches, refreshed, unchecked boxes in the caches and still the spinning block continues.
It may be tied into the theme and I've requested help from the creator but no response ... AND ... when I tried a different theme it also gave me a spinning block so I'm thinking it may not be the theme but somewhere in the code.
I can edit block that are already there but I cannot add anything. I'm so disappointed and don't know as a newbie how to remove everything safely and reconnect it to see if it's a glitch.
I've looked at the php block but wouldn't know if something was wrong if it stared me in the face.
Any other suggestions please???
Did you look at the Concrete5 logs in the dashboard panel?

Is this the area you are referring to? There's also an area that says login destination.
