After I installed userforms I started having problems. Firstly when I clicked 'add' to add a new text field it went to a black page. After searching the forums for an answer I read somewhere to add the following url 'admin?flush=1' ...After that silverstripe wouldn't load up. It is stuck on the silverstripe loadig page.

I then deleted userforms thinking that was the problem but still no luck. I been using /dev/build url to make sure everything is up to date.

Can anyone help please?

Sounds like a javascript error. Check your browsers console window for any errors before doing any of the following

Other things to check / try:
* Make sure you have the correct UDF -> SS version. For SS2.3 Use UDF 0.2, For SS2.4 use 0.3.
* Turn off Requirements combining by adding this to your _config file - Requirements::set_combined_files_enabled("false"); in your _config.php file.
* Flush the CMS by visiting admin?flush=1

Hi Willr,

Thanks for replying

Silverstripe admin is now working thanks - I pretty much started again, but useforms is not. I downloaded userforms-v0.3.0.

I renamed it to 'userforms' and put in the sapphire folder on the server. I see the form tab but when I try to add a textfield this url is a blank page admin/EditForm

any ideas?

All good now. I didn't put it in the root directory.

Thanks for your help
