  1. I tried adding a few plug-ins from the CKEditor site and they appeared to install just fine as there were no errors and then after one of them there were no more buttons on the toolbar. No biggie just restore to default configuration right? Well I tried that and it said it completed but there are no buttons and the editor won't open on any posts. Going through the steps of the ACP > Support didn't solve anything. At this point the community is completely useless so if anyone has any ideas on how I can successfully restore the default toolbar configuration I would appreciate it. 

  2. Anyone have thoughts on this? Our CKeditor has the issues with the wrong icons for what they're doing so that may be related but these people are telling me that the text editor won't fully expand to where they can type into it. I'm guessing it's a caching issue but going through the ACP > support and restarting my server haven't helped with that. I even created new skins hoping that might work but no joy there either. Thoughts?

    Have you tried installing a new style for the editor, choosing it and saving and then going back to the default (doesn't solve the issue of why it's happening but may fix it).  I have other styles installed and all of mine work correctly (the ones I installed and the default ones).

    Just tried changing the Moono skin and that worked perfectly. In fact I think my users would prefer that one as it seems to remember that you did or did not use the source button for your last post. Between the people pissed about losing BBCode functionality (e.g. being able to type in the code directly into the editor without having to use a mouse to do something) and now this editor acting wonky I'm not sure how much more they're going to take of 4.x. 

    I may try and go back to the default skin once I've played around with the Moono skin a bit.

    Just for grins and giggles (if you are self hosted on a VPS/dedi) see if you can restart the PHP processor and HTTP server.  Sometimes I've seen a caching issue occur if using any OPcode caching or memcached on servers.

    In addition try using the ACP -> Support -> Something isn't working correctly option to see if it will rebuild the CSS/templates then restart.

    Tried restarting the server and that didn't make a difference. Had already gone through the ACP > Support steps and no luck there. 

  5. I'm seeing the same things on my forums and I've tried restoring the default configuration and it didn't help. I've tried going through the support steps in the admin and nothing there solved it either.

    Don't call me Sir! I was a working man in the military... :tongue:  :lol:

    But glad to be of help just the same... :rofl:

    (Can you tell I hate Emoticons lately)

    Hey same here... I was an 11p grunt @ 3rd Ranger Batt and Ft Bragg from 95-01. 

    No hating on emoticons! I'm trying to get mine working after deleting the default group and that's a whole nother ball of wax.

    A quick but tedious fix to this is copy the nexus folder from theme folder 1 to those with the missing folder. Then go into the ACP - Customization (No Designers Mode) -  Theme - (theme with missing Nexus folder - far right down arrow - Manage resources and start adding these images.

    It may also be possible (I believe) to copy the Nexus folders as described above in Designers Mode. As long as the css files are pointing to the images properly.

    That did the trick! Good thinking sir!

    In theory it might but I'd not personally want to copy a database piecemeal as the tables are relational, you could open up a 'difficult to fix' can of worms with things that might not present issues straight away.

    With the db its best as an 'all or nothing' thing really.

    Has there been much data since you upgraded to 4X ?

    I'd be tempted to try a subs to Nexus upgrade on your test site first to see how well it goes before considering a 'restore' of your live site (if that's practical)

    Yessir there's been some data and a good bit of customization. I don't want to create a whole nother can of worms so I will avoid going that direction. I'd be more than happy to test out a subs to Nexus upgrade on the dev site.

    You're welcome. :) Feedback topic link in my post above.

    I'm not 100% sure on the styling concern. Go to the ACP > Support > Something is not working > Just follow it all the way through (let it rebuild caches etc) until you get to the stage where it wants you to submit a ticket (do not)

    Then check to see if the styling issue is fixed or not. If you're using a custom theme check on the default too.


    Yep I've tried that numerous times hoping that it would fix it but it hasn't. I didn't want to create a ticket on the styling issue without knowing if the bigger issue could be fixed 1st. 

    My thought now is to install the latest 3.4.8 (with Commerce/Nexus) from here on my dev site (which has it's own license key) and then upload my last 3.4.8 DB (backed up just before upgrading to 4.x) and then convert subscriptions to Commerce/Nexus. From there upgrade the dev site to and then figure out if I can just copy some tables over to the live site. Does that sound like it would work?

    That's a shame :(

    I've reviewed the code now. It is present in 1.5.x , /admin/applications_addon/ips/nexus/modules_admin/convert/convert.php

    I'll post a feedback topic about this. :)

    Thanks Andy that would be great! 

    I've also noticed that it appears there's supposed to be a Nexus theme folder under the "1" theme and I'm not seeing that on my install. Just some broken images in the admin and a pretty boring and basic looking store front with the few subscriptions I've tried setting up. Any idea how to solve that? My fear is that I'd have to uninstall Commerce and then re-upload the files again and attempt to re-install the product.

    You're welcome. :) Thanks for saying you'll post back as I'd be interested to hear the outcome. I've not looked at the code to see if it (should) already pickup the subs data or not I expect not but in that case you need some kind of 'updater' (that was in 1.5.9 iirc) to convert it from Subs to Nexus then Commerce should pick it up.

    I guess if you were doing it again ( ! ) I'd say install Nexus when you're on 3.x then upgrade to 4x once it had sorted the data but I hope support can offer some input for you on this.

    Welp it looks like it's not possible. I guess this is a good lesson to learn in that you need to upgrade from Subscriptions to Nexus prior to upgrading from 3.x to 4.x. 


    Unfortunately Commerce will not convert subscriptions data.

  12. I have installed and I've never had Nexus before as I always used the subscriptions add on. Converting to 4.x and that no longer works so I purchased Nexus and it's now (hopefully) installed correctly. However I still see "subscriptions" as an out-of-date app and none of my old subscriptions or anything has converted over to Nexus as I'd hoped. Can anyone point me in the right direction so that my old subscription packages and subscribers and history all get converted over?
