[Resolved] Details aren't showing in edit mode

  • Sitka

    @wahkeenasitka

    Okay, I’m dealing with a very confusing and frustrating issue………..

    I have Events Manager plugin installed on many websites now that I manage / create… And right now, I’m looking at my site: http://vocal-alchemy.com

    If you go to the Schedule page, you see 3 events, and there are “details” for each event, and the event details show on the site…

    However, when i’m in the WP Dashboard, and I’m trying to edit the event, the DETAILS are NOT SHOWING. They are just blank and disappeared… I’ve tried a few times where after I create a Test Event, the details just disappear and I can’t edit the details that I wrote previously…. They show up on the site but they disappear from the dashboard edit version.

    I’ve upgraded to the latest version of WP, and I’ve updated to the latest version of Events Manager – both just to see if that would solve the problem. It hasn’t. And I’m noticing it on multiple websites on multiple webhosting servers that I manage, AND it’s a problem across browsers – I’ve tested it on Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

    What’s UP?????????

    thanks

    no error messages or warnings…..

    it just shows up blank, as if no details had ever been entered in…..

    have you tried disabling other plugins and reverting to 2010 theme to see if one of those cause it?

    @wahkeenasitka

    what is the “2010 theme”? not understanding that.

    on one of the sites that’s screwing up, i deactivated all the other plugins except for Events Manager. nothing changed.

    Marcus,
    I’d be happy to give you the WP Login info for 2 of the sites I’m experiencing this problem with.

    could be anything, with themes each one like this has it’s own special problems.

    @wahkeenasitka

    well then, crap. what am i supposed to do? switch back to 2010 each time i want to edit an event?

    well, unfortunately, your options are to fix it yourself if you know php/html etc., hire someone, or ask the theme developer (which you should if its premium).

    fyi, for pro users I’d go out of my way to peek at your admin area and tell you morespecifically (if possible, usually is) what’s going wrong where.

    I’ve just started using WordPress and Events Manager (great plugin) and am experiencing a problem like this too. I’ve tried disabling themes and plugins to no avail. Given the symptoms of the issue (see below) I wonder if it’s a javascript problem (e.g., maybe a conflict with a script installed by something else)?

    In my situation, I can see the text-entry box under “details” when I edit or create an event, but any text entered using the “visual” tab appears in white-color font, so does not appear to be visible; also, the usual WYSIWY text-editing buttons are absent. If I toggle to the HMTL view, I can see and add text normally. However, if I then try to toggle back to the “visual” tab, I lose the text-entry box entirely until I save and reopen the event. This is what makes me think it might be a javascript issue.

    Interestingly, if I install Events Manager on a vanilla wordpress site on my local machine with my theme activated, it works perfectly. However, on the wordpress install provided by my hosting company, it’s borked, as described above. The only difference I can see between my local setup and the setup at the hosting company is in the text editor that’s enabled. Mine is whatever comes with wordpress out-of-the-box; theirs is something fancier — maybe tinymce (I will check).

    i forget the name, but there’s a recent feature in wp where tinymce styles the text inline according to your theme so it looks more like it’ll look on your theme. if you search around you should find out how to turn that off, maybe it’s that

    OK, have done a little more digging.

    Looking at the HTML generated when adding a post vs adding an event, there is a difference. Specifically, the HTML that’s used by the “add new event” form is missing a chunk of code that’s used by the “add new post” form (where the visual editor for the text box works fine):

    From the “add new event” form:

    <div id="editorcontainer">
        <textarea id="content" class="theEditor" tabindex="2" name="content" cols="40" rows="10"></textarea>
    </div>

    From the add new post” form:

    <div id="editorcontainer">
        <textarea id="content" class="theEditor" tabindex="2" name="content" cols="40" rows="10" style="display: none;"></textarea>
        <span id="content_parent" class="mceEditor wp_themeSkin">
            <table id="content_tbl" class="mceLayout" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" style="width: 100%; height: 222px;">
     ....
            </table>
        </span>
    </div>

    The issue seems to be caused by the “cformsII” plugin http://www.deliciousdays.com/cforms-plugin/ (which was automatically activated by my hosting company). When this is deactivated, the events manager text box behaves exactly as expected.

    interesting. i use cforms a lot and never saw this (maybe never the two on the same site)

    i am working on some things that would fix this (but a few weeks away)

    Thanks, Marcus. I note a few other plugins seem to have noted TinyMCE/JQuery conflicts with cforms. e.g. Revisionary (version 1.0.6) http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/revisionary/changelog/ and Event Calendar (version 6.5) http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/events-calendar/changelog/
