[solved] Admin Blocks Template Reply to topic


This may be more of a theme issue, so happy to move it there.

Recently upgraded to 9.3.3.0, Our old Halo theme seems to be working fine except for this annoying problem whilst in Admin and trying to edit blocks.

The text does not show up at all, tried default theme and it does, copied those files to Halo, and it still does not show.

Also across ALL themes, can only modify one module at a time, once one is opened, no others will, you need to click "Blocks" again to collapse the open one, and start again.

It will vary with dark themes.

Extract the zipped file and copy to themes/yours/template/admin/blocks.html.

blocks.html was designed for the admin area using only the default theme - someone didn't like it so nano reversed that change in v9 but it is the standard in v10 so won't be a problem there.

Thanks Phoenix thats perfect. Very Happy

Is it normal to need to go back to the blocks menu to open another module?

that happens on default theme too.

I'm not sure what you mean?

I click on Blocks menu, click on say News to open it (as in my pic.)

Then I cannot select any other modules, or close News. I have to go back to the Blocks menu again to open another module.

So basically opening a module to see what blocks are assigned only works once, then I need to start over to look at another module.

Yes it's by design.

Originally you could modify and then update all modules at once, but a default suhosin installation would truncate the POSTed data for many modules + many blocks scenarios.

Later changed as workaround.

Slightly off-topic, but I notices the css menu jumps around in this theme.

It may be that the inherited font name is conflicting with the font name used by cpgmm.css.

In Halo? I think I see what you mean if you hold the mouse cursor right on the very edge of a link, it then jumps really rapidly.

heres the css for it.

Based on my testing with 9.3, it appears it's still the case that the default Suhosin configuration will cause problems with the block manager. I believe the solution documented in the Wiki still has to be applied (I didn't think to check if the scaling factor is still accurate though, I forget where that number came from... there was a pretty good reason... it's probably still right), although with the more modest editing scope the size of the limits can be lower. The Suhosin defaults appear to be way too low for this application, however.

I'm still puttering around with the issue that submitting changes to block configuration doesn't appear to work with IE, but does with Firefox. I'm not a very good AJAX mechanic, so I haven't made much progress. I did confirm it wasn't a Suhosin issue (although it was, at first). I fixed my php.ini config when I realized I'd forgotten to make that edit when I migrated the server - and I was the one who wrote the wiki entry! Embarassed

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
