Admin backend dropdowns suddenly inactive

Post by Huhu » Thu Aug 31, 2017 2:16 pm

After installing the Multilingual plug-in, suddenly all dropdown and even link buttons of the Admin interface became inactive. I did not change the before that smoothly working config other than that. Template: Clean Blog.
After deleting Multilingual Entries, the links are clickable again, but the error message persists.
Error message:

Code: Select all

 Error: . Does it exist? Please check your privileges to this table; triggered in serendipity_event_multilingual, setupDB() method.

Hi,

the error message refers to a non existing variable; what it should show you is that the database table "serendipity_entryproperties" is missing. Usually that one is created with the serendipity installation; is it missing on your installation?!

Ah. I renamed the prefix of the tables during the s9y installation, from "serendipity_" to "ml_" .
maybe the plug- in does for some reason not adapt to the custom table names?

PS Nice flickr stream btw. Reminds me that my last holiday worth it's name is some years past ...

I have the same problem, directly after a clean installation with version 2.1.1. Table "serendipity_entryproperties" does exist. Is there anything else I can check or try?

Does your prefix mismatch? That table should always exist with a fresh s9y installation; the SQL creation statements for it are listed in db/db.sql - maybe an error occured for its creation?
