Can't create widgets?

Post by jaydorner on December 22nd 2011, 8:28 pm

Hi all. I am having problems creating and editing widgets?

I cant use a lot of the buttons, insert or resize images, or edit or add links etc.

Is there some type of maintainence happening that may be affecting this?

Are you actually "creating" Widgets or just having trouble adding widgets to your forum?

Some of the widgets forumotion provides can not be edited. But you can find other widgets online and add your own.

I have seen no evidence of any maintenance going on.

I am creating and trying to edit existing personal widgets (ones I have already created)

my site is: www.islandlocksforum.com

The widgets that are currently showing on my forum all show correctly, so it's not a display problem. I just cant seem to use most of the options/edit buttons available to edit or create new widgets?

I assume you are going to Admin Panel>>Modules>>Forum widgets management>>... And when you get there you can't "Modify" your widgets or "Create a Widget"? I don't know what the problem is. Mine is working fine I just checked.

Yes, doing all the above. I have created loads of widgets without problem in the past? Im not an expert but know how it all works, or should work.

I can click to edit a personal widget, but when I get to the editor none of the buttons work for me? add picture, create a link, bold, font etc...

It allows me to edit the text content, but when I click save it just reverts back to what I had originally. Totaly lost on this one?

Thanks for the replies so far everyone.

So you exactly are having trouble with the text editor buttons in the administration panel?

Thats correct. Also won't allow me to add picture url's? Nothing happens when I click any edit button except 'Host an Image'?

The only thing I can do is change existing text, but then it won't save.

I have just found that the same thing is happening in all the text editors in the admin panel?

I have tried on several different browsers and it's the same thing.

I didn't even know the Admin Panel had a text editor for phpBB 3, that's the version I have and I can see that's what you have too. I never noticed it. The simple fact is I write all my coding myself and have no use for a text editor. I don't even use one when posting on the forum.

Consider writing it yourself and bypass the editor. But I know you want it fixed. Good luck.
