    Hey, I just installed your official 2.7.0 update and I can’t add a channel field based on this error :

    Unable to load the requested file: col_settings_tmpl.php

    Please help

    Hi Klauss,

    You likely have an add-on that is manipulating package paths incorrectly. Do you still have this problem with no add-ons?

    Hei there, as fast as i could dig in it is related to your new GRID fieldtype.

    @Klauss - thanks.  To be honest I did a git revert on the whole upgrade as I hit too many issues.

    I was perhaps a little hasty as I am using a lot of addons, should have let the dust settle a bit.

    Hi, I also have this issue on 2.7.0- uninstalling Grid fixed the issue.

    Strangely this is happening on one site running 2.7.0 but not on another.

    And this issue reared its head literally 5 minutes after me saying ‘I’ll hold off on buying matrix for now, lets give Grid a whirl’... back over to devotee for me!

    I had exactly the same issue with a bare bones EE2.7 install - couldn’t create new custom fields until i removed the new Grid Fieldtype:-S

    If you all have a way to reproduce this with *no add-ons* present in the install at all, please file a bug. So far, this issue has only come up with add-ons that aren’t managing package paths correctly.

    Just upgraded to 2.7.2 from 2.5.5. Had this issue with lots of add-ons. Disabling “only” Grid resolved the issue.

    I had the same thing in 2.7.2. Disabling the Grid fieldtype resolved the issue. But I would like to use Grid, so what to do now?

    Same here.. updated 2.5.5 site to 2.7.2, couldn’t access custom field settings until I disabled Grid.  Fix?

    Like Grid, the shiny new first-party add-on?  smile
