Style properties: Tabs in property groups are failing


Active member

I have come a long way now in configuring and setting up my new forum platform. I have had some issues before. Fortunately everything has gotten straightened out so far.

Now to my problem I discovered today which possibly could be a bug. When I tried to do some style tweaking in the style properties it seems like something had broken. I chose a property group in style properties. In the view below in the picture I then tried to select one of many tabs showing up. But when I did it redirected me back to the style property list. Why?

I have gone trough all property groups and tested what happens when I try to click the tabs in each group. This is the result:

  1. Color palette - Working
  2. Conversation Essentials - Working
  3. Bookmarks - Not working
  4. General - Not working
  5. Building blocks - Working
  6. Header and navigation - Not working
  7. Notices - Not working
  8. Login bar - Not working
  9. Footer - Working
  10. Pagenav, link groups, tabs - Not working

Sounds like a javascript problem. Maybe your js files are failing to load. If you post your URL then I can check your js.

Everything is working fine. No issues with the tabs as before. Is it a specific add-on breaking the javascript?

I think I found what's causing this problem. It's the add-on Template Syntax (v. 1.6) causing some of the tabs in the property groups to break.
