Can't Create Blog Pages In Google Chrome 5?

Can anybody create new blog pages in Chrome 5 on Windows? Or even Mac for that case.

I've tested on 2 different installations for different sites, and ever since upgrading to Chrome 5, I cannot create new blog pages in the admin area. When I create a new blog page, the new page is created in sitetree but the loading icon beside it hangs and hangs. Clicking on any of the tabs (metadata, googlesitemap etc) causes all of them to be exposed on the page at once. The html is screwed up.

1 blog is running the new 0.4 release, and the other a trunk version from a few weeks ago. Both were working fine, and I can still create them in Firefox.

I've disabled all extensions thinking maybe that was the cause, but nothing. I've cleared the cache as well. I can create other page types fine. It is blog related only.

I'm using firefox on a mac and am having the same problem. I go to create a new blog entry. When I click on the entry it just hangs and shows the loading icon. Did you ever find a solution?

May be a javascript problem

biapar - thanks for your input. For me its happening in chrome, firefox and safari. So you are saying that this javascript error is occurring with all three of these browser? What would be the best way to start trouble shooting the issue? Thanks!

You can use Firebug for debuuging or to see js error.

biapar - thanks for the info! I actually had that installed and had taken a glance at that. I just updated that add on and then reloaded that page several times. The console still does not show any errors.

Looking at the source code for the right side, I basically have an empty form tag. And I don't know if this is relevant but I can edit entries from the front-end of the website just not the back end. I was hoping to get the backend working so that I can add some custom fields to a blog entry.

Do you still think its a javascript error or are there other things I should look into?

thanks for your help!

I had this same issue with not being able to edit blog posts in the admin. It appears it is date related and for me was something to do with the latest version of MAMP. Are you using MAMP?

No javascript errors, but I got this time out message:

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /Users/scott/websites/ on line 665

I went back to a older version of MAMP (Version 1.8.2 (1.8.2)) and can confirm works fine. Still I would like to know what the issue was as...

Hi Scott - Thank you for your reply. Yes! I am using the newest version of MAMP. I am not seeing an error message but am guessing mine is timing out too... as it loads for a very long time and then shows nothing.

Well if this is the source of my problem too, its nice to think this is not going to be an issue once I move this to my staging server. I'll let you know what happens.

Did you completely uninstall MAMP before downgrading to the older version? And where did you find the older version?
