Items text boxes disappears after upgrading from 2.4.1 to 2.7.1


We recently upgraded from 2.4.1 to 2.7.1.
After the upgrade we’re seeing a weird behaviour where we want to edit an item,
the text box associated to the inputs (e.g title) are invisible, e.g:

Only when the “Add input” butting is clicked, then the text box appears containing the content.

This creates the 2nd text box for the input.
We’re only seeing this when editing items. I can’t see any error/messages that may be related
to this in the omeka application logs or web server logs. Any ideas on the root cause of this behaviour?


Well that’s odd.

Are none of the input boxes displaying, or just the ones for some elements? Does the same thing happen when you try to add an item? Does clicking in the empty space do anything, or not?

Adding a new item also has the same behaviour - the text box is invisible.
Only when the “Add Input” button is clicked then the text box appears:

But then it creates a second input text box which we have to delete.

Hmm without any error output I don’t have a good initial guess as to what’s happening. (Have you checked the browser’s Javascript console for errors too?)

Let’s rule some stuff out:

  • Does the same problem happen on different browsers, and/or after clearing the cache on your browser? It could be something simple like a caching problem.
  • If that doesn’t help, try disabling your modules to see if one of them is the culprit.
