HTML Editor blank on remote

HTML Editor blank on remote

An HTML editor I've built works perfectly on my localhost but displays blank on my remote server - both work perfectly until I add a repeat to the editor, then it breaks only on the remote. I've copied the entire Webassist folder over to the remote server but that does not correct the issue. I've checked the permissions and they are all set to 755. Any ideas what I should do to trouble-shoot? I'm attaching screen captures to show what is displaying on both servers. I can send more info and the URLs if needed.

It looks like it shows up for me. Maybe it is the browser you are using? It might be because you are using https://. I believe it is fixed in the latest version, but older versions have http:// for some of the script links that cause it to not work on https:// versions.

Blank HTML Editor

The editor I'm using on the site, which is live, does not have a repeat region added so it works. The editor on the page I want to use which has a repeat added is located in the private message below which does not display on the remote server. I did try it on Safari, Firefox, Chrome and Edge - all do not display via the remote server. I haven't located any hard-coded references to http vs https on the affected webpage.

Still at a loss...

It looks like there is an error on the page preventing it from displaying. Try adding this to the top of the page:

php:
<?php

ini_set
("display_errors",1);
?>



Then see if that displays the error message. That might help in debugging the issue.

If you attach a copy of the page to your reply I may be able to spot the problem in the code.

I've added the PHP error code to the top of the affected page but when I open it in Firefox on the remote server, no error is displayed and the Editor still does not display. I am attaching the problem page.

It looks like it must be a database issue... your recordset isn't returning any results. Your page is also missing an </body></html> tag at the end. That was why I thought there was an error, but that is actually missing from the page.

YOU ARE AMAZING!

I added the missing </body> and </html> tags and the page now works perfectly. Must be that the browsers under macOS (my localhost server) are more 'tolerant' of html errors than is Linux (remote server). I suspect that when I added the repeat region, the closing tags were removed somehow?

Anyway, a thousand thank-you's!!
