    Admin splash screen stuck! Link to this post

    Hi guys, I don't think I've altered anything in the site structure beyond the mysite and themes folders.

    I installed the Jobs module from the book tutorial and setup some virtual pages but thats it.

    It was all working but now when I login I get stuck on the white splash screen with the SS logo and the 'Loading...' text in the corner.

    Anyone else had this problem? It's got me really perplexed. The CMS is loaded, I can see it when I 'View Source' but the splash screen is covering it.

    I'm on version 2.4.0 by the way.

    Please help! Thanks!

    If the loading screen isn't disappearing this usually relates to a Javascript error (ts missing a js file, or a syntax error in the js). Do you get any errors in your webbrowsers console panel?

    This may sound crazy but try a full refresh - I just had this unexpectedly with errors like '$ not defined' and 'jQuery not defined'.

    I knew it was rubbish because it worked fine in another browser - so in firefox I did 'Ctrl + F5' and the cms loaded.

    Hope that helps...

    Cheers for the help. I ended up re installing SS, which fixed the problem!
    Not the best solution I know but since I'd only just got started I thought it would be a quicker solution.

    hi there, i had this problem too - admin worked first time, but then when i logged back out and logged in again it stuck at the splash screen, trief ctrl F5, ?flush=1 etc and nothing worked.

    Anyway, found this fix on one of the other posts...

    In your _config.php file add the following line of code:

    Requirements::set_combined_files_enabled(false);

    Thanks Linsey for posting up the solution on this thread as it came in handy.

    Any idea what the original thread where you got this from is? What exactly is this doing and why is it fixing it? I guess I'm trying to understand what exactly I'm doing by adding this to my _config.php file.
