Hi Guys

I have tried to extend ModelAdmin and all seems ok until I click in the search option and the ctf looks like it is not loading its style sheet (image attached). I am running 2.4 and has tried this on 3 different servers and had the same result. Al with fresh installs.

if you have any ideas I would appreciate it. The weird thing is on the wamp server on my pc it is perfect!

thanks Craig

A couple of notes...

1) an empty has_one is not required (only specify what you need)
2) in the case of summary_fields being the same as searchable_fields - you only need summary_fields
3) I'd remove almost all the code, dev/build, view, add items back in one by one to fix this

I cannot see the error right off, but I have had strange results from ModelAdmin and it can be a pain to find out what it was, but starting with a clean install and the smallest code and working up gets it working in the end?

Try adding the following lines of codes to your VehicleAdmin.

public static $url_rule = '$Action/$ID';

public static $model_importers = null;

public function getModelImporters() {
return null;

Then hit me back with the result.

Hi Pinoy

No change at all in the results.
