Toggle button for form editing


Hi everyone!

I've installed an EPiServer 7.5.394.2 and Alloy MVC Sample Site using EPiServer Deployment Center, and ordered a demo license.
In edit mode, when I click on the button in the upper right corner in order to toggle between 'on-page editing' and 'form editing' modes, nothing happens. I just get a "loading animation" and that's it.

Please have a look at this image for more details:

DOPE mode works fine.


Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

What errors do you see in the browser console window?

I see two log entries in Google Chrome:

Resource interpreted as Stylesheet but transferred with MIME type text/plain: "http://dejcar-pc:17000/ClientResources/Styles/Styles.css". dojo.js:15

Resource interpreted as Script but transferred with MIME type text/plain: "http://dejcar-pc:17000/ClientResources/Scripts/editors/StringList.js". dojo.js:15

The toggle button works fine for blocks.

Are you getting 404 or 200 responses back for those resources?

Dejan, I had a similar problem some time ago (with the WebForms sample site).

I didn't have the time to solve the actual problem but instead implemented a workaround:

  • Comment out the class StringList in /Business/EditorDescriptors/StringList.cs
  • Comment out everything in /ClientResources/Scripts/Editors/StringList.js
  • In /Views/MasterPages/SiteMasterPage change SetupMetaTags() by commenting out the code for MetaKeywords (write new code if you want to use keywords, otherwise just skip them)

Hope this helps!

@Frederik, I'm getting 200 for both of them

@Mikael, I've removed StringListEditorDescriptor and accompanying files and everything works fine now!


Thank you both!

Had a very similiar problem, same behaviour but nothing logged to console or as HTTP errors.

In my case it was ImageVault 4 to blame. I was using - Public release 4.4. Removing the IV button from the TinyMCE toolbar got the Forms Editing button to work.

Found that in the following release this was one of the fixed issues: 

"TinyMCE does not work with ImageVault in EPi 7.6 (1068)"
