We noticed a problem when we migrated a development Joomla to production yesterday and I have just now got a chance to look into it. The issue is that we cannot modify any of the backend forms. When we open the form in the backend on the both machines, the "Loading" spinner stays on the screen for a very long time and never returns. When we attempt to create a new form, the page will load but the buttons on the screen do nothing (General, Designer, Code, etc & Test, Save, Save and Close, Close). None of them work, it's a very odd situation. I haven't dug into the files yet but, I can. I am curious if anyone has had this issue before I go digging. I don't really like digging and modifying code if I don't have to because the next update may reverse the modifications.

To be clear, this is the behavior on both machines. I just happen to notice it when we copied the installation to the production machine. There are very little components and modules installed on this website as it is very basic. I can't see it being a problem with another component but, anything is possible. This seems more like a javascript issue, maybe?

If you need any further information, please ask.

Thank you,

Jay

Hi Jay,

Please see the admin template section in this FAQ. If that doesn't solve it please post again and we can dig deeper.

I am really sorry. I dug around for a bit more (after I created the post, of course) and found that FAQ. It worked like a charm! Thank you for your help!

On a side note: I attempted to delete the forum post but, it wouldn't let me delete my own post because it hadn't been approved yet.

Hi Jay,

First posts are moderated as we have had a lot of spam in the past. You should now be able to delete I think.
