New editing issue in Sitefinity backend

  • New editing issue in Sitefinity backend
  • I have noticed a new problem sneaking into our Sitefinity installations only recently - the inability to edit two items one after another.

    Essentially, if I go into the SF backend and edit a news item, then click 'Back to news' and click to edit a different news item, then the editing screen never loads. If I look at the console, I have the following script error:

    Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'constructor' of null

    The strangest thing about this, is that it's an error that not only seemed to suddenly appear, but also appeared in multiple installations. Different websites, using different versions of Sitefinity, on different environments.

    It's affecting various content types and even widget templates - in the case of widget templates I don't even receive a script error, the request simply stops and I get a blank page. In all cases if I refresh and then try to access the same item again, it works. If I then back out and click another, the issue occurs again.

    Obviously it's making content editing frustrating.

    The issue only seems to occur in Chrome, so I'm wondering if a Chrome update has caused it?

    Is this something anyone else is experiencing?
  • I've had similar issues just recently when trying to edit the Titles & Properties of Pages, one after the other. Every other click on Titles & Properties results in the Titles & Properties page not loading, but the Pages interface refreshes. 

    Also,  a client just called to report a similar issue when trying to edit items in eCommerce>Products. 

    We are both using the same version of Chrome (50.0.2661.94), but I am on Mac, client is on PC.

    Firefox does not have the issue, so I'm thinking a recent Chrome update has broken something.

  • Katie, I am also experiencing the issue of the editing screen not loading in Chrome after I close one item, go back, and try to open another.  I have used Chrome for a long time when editing, and this is a  recent issue. I had to switch over to Firefox to use Sitefinity.
