    Nothing shown when I click Files and Images Link to this post

    I need to remove old images but when I click on the tab in the cms the right hand pane is completely empty? I have the assets folder in the right place I think?

    Any ideas?

    Have you checked the rights on your assets folder?

    Hi

    Have set permissions to 777 but made no difference?

    Thanks for the reply.

    Did you mean the right pane is empty as in the list doesn't show any files? Or the right pane is actually completely empty?

    If it's the latter, then there might be an error lurking somewhere. Try reloading the cms, or maybe use firebug to check for errors...

    Hi reloading doesn't help and yes the right pane is completely empty

    I have used firebug on it but am not sure how to use this. What should I be looking for?

    Thanks

    Basically what you're looking for is some kind of javascript or php error message. There are a couple of tracks you can follow

    1. Put this in your mysite/_config.php, then reload the cms:

    Director::set_environment_type("dev");

    2. If you have access to your webservers error log, look for a php error there

    3. Firebug may report a JavaScript error (you'd see that in the console section).

    4. Sometimes a php error isn't displayed outright, but you might still find it in FireBugs 'Net' section: if you click the initial request GET admin/assets/ and check the 'answer' tab.

    I hope something comes up!
