Can not create/edit description of listing

User Charly2015 2015-11-20 11:08:47

Hi guys,

with v2.2.2 I created a listing with description.

After the update to v2.2.3 I can no longer edit the description of that list. The editor with the old text appears, I can modify it, but after "save" it is back to the old text.

When creating new lists, the description disappears once the "save" button is pressed.

Possibly related observation:
When I am in the list create/edit mode and press "save", I see this message that says "do you really want to quit this page?" (I see it in German, so it is a rough translation).

Normally this message only appears on certain web pages, when I try to leave a not-yet-completed form without pressing the "save" (or similar) button.

Funny: Adding/changing "Fields", which is part of the same "Listings:Edit" page DOES work.

More precise bug testing:

The "do you really want to quit?" warning does NOT appear when
- entering a new list name + "save"
- adding new fields + "save"
It does ONLY appear when
- entering a description for the list + "save"

So, this warning and my described bug are linked!

...and the bug was already there in v2.2.2

(Don't ask me how I ever managed (just once) to create a list that DOES have a description...)

Any hints?

this seems related to new versions of joomla editors. Please download latest version 2.2.4 and try again to save.

Thanks, regards

Cool. Saving description works now!

However the confusing message "Do you want to quit the page?" when hitting the "save" or "save and close" button still remains.

The "do you really want to quit?" warning message is not part of List Manager component. Maybe this message is displayed by any plugin/component/theme installed in backend. We suggest to try to disable for a while any plugin regarding form save.
