adding custom field to field group

Version: 3.4.2 Reporter: matrix10

This is an archived bug report. If you are experiencing a similar issue, upgrade to the latest release and if that does not solve the problem, submit a new bug report


nothing showing to allow me to create a custom field for field group.

clicked “Create New” in /admin.php?/cp/channels/fields/1
all the page shows except the form.

edit existing field (created via 3.4.1) works fine.

  • Definitely cannot reproduce and our automated tests check for things like these as well and they are all passing.

    1. Can you share a screenshot of what you are seeing?
    2. Are you getting any errors in your web console?
    3. When you updated, did you replace your themes/ee folder?

  • Hi Derek, I’ve figured out the error was caused by a fieldtype addon.. sorry for that.

    TL;TR 1. http://awesomescreenshot.com/04863z1nea 2. no errors in the error log 3. I’ve just re-done the replacement to see if it was a problem. no change :(

    I’ve upgraded loads of times before with no problems with this fieldtype… however I might not have created any new fields in the last few versions (there have been loads recently).

    Found the problem by outputting the variables used in \EllisLab\ExpressionEngine\Controller\Channels\Fields->create()

    FILE: /system/ee/EllisLab/Expressionengine/Controller/Channels/Fields/Fields.php BEFORE LINE 176: ee()->cp->render(‘settings/form’, $vars); ADDED: var_dump($vars);exit(); ERROR:

    Undefined variable: key
    user/addons/google_maps/ft.google_maps.php, line 371

    Saw this php notice error with one of the fieldtypes used in the create form! must be something wrong in my hosting error logging. sorry for wasting your time.

    Thanks for confirming that the error was at my end.
