Admin page gone on the blink

Post by Klauwaart » Sun Oct 31, 2021 3:56 pm

Herllo,
I use Serendipity 2.3.5 on Windows 10 64-bit.
Everything went nice and smooth, then I installed serendipity_event_social (I don't know whether that is the cause), but when I went back to my admin page, I saw a plain HTML page with no CSS, just plain blue hyperlinks, and the links don't seem to work.

Has anyonbe got any idea what could have happened there, and, more importantly, how it can be fixed?

Thank you in advance.

Completely possible the plugin is at fault. Main goal now is to find the error message. Before you go into the logs, you can try one thing: Open the backend CSS, which will have an URL of https://example.com/serendipity_admin.css.

If it's just one white page you can activate the error messages in serendipity or have a look into the server logs, whichever is more convenient.

To activate the error message in s9y I would edit the serendipity_config.inc.php at this line, https://github.com/s9y/Serendipity/blob ... nc.php#L60, add this code:

Code: Select all

$serendipity['production'] = false;
Then reload the css page.

Hello,
Thank you for your reply.

However, weird as it is, it sort of worked intermittently, and the problem got sorted when (that was just a gamble, but it worked) I cleared my browser cache.

I will now wait a while and see what happens next and see if that was the solution.

Thanks again.
Kind regards.
