Widget Essentials not working

Technical Support
  • Gonna have to remind myself to leave the forum admin alone once its running correctly, getting to learn not to touch or even update the plugins because each time I do it causes problems, finally had my forums looks great great, when right out of the blue the widgets disappeared. 😢

    Widget essentials is installed and active and yet when ever I visit the widgets area I get the following error - "No widgets found! Activate the essential widgets plugin in the plugins control panel."

    I've disabled and uninstalled and then installed and enabled and still it doesn't work.

    Am using version 1.0.0 of widget essentials.

    thanks in advance, Lee 😄

  • Widget essetnails 1.0.0. is for nodebb 0.7.0-dev. Make sure you use an earlier version or update your nodebb core.

  • @baris ,

    hi Baris, thanks for responding, that's the version of Nodebb I'm using, does that mean I need to update the core?

  • Make sure your core is up to date and the file translator.js is inside ../public/src/modules/translator' That change happend a few days ago if I am not mistaken.

  • @baris

    thanks again, your previous advice resolved the issue, I updated Nodebb which reverted to the previous version of WE (0.2.18), I'm going to leave it as it is, really don't like messing around with the back end stuff, I'm still a noob.

    many thanks appreciate your help 😄

    Best, Lee

    @kurulumu-net Odd. I'm not able to reproduce this. Have you tried disabling plugins to see if any of those are the culprit ?

    @baris Using the below site, reminding me of just how powerful Chrome Developers tools are, I was able to Copy As Curl the specific PUT command.

    Curl Convert

    Then using the same command and just changing the CID, I confirmed the same command works for all of them.

    This is what ended up working, it includes all the recorded headers, of which some will be removed as not necessary:

    curl 'http://pubdump.unfufadoo.net:4567/api/v3/categories/80' \ -X 'PUT' \ -H 'Connection: keep-alive' \ -H 'Accept: */*' \ -H 'DNT: 1' \ -H 'x-csrf-token: H5FMJEaY-CthHWM_2Unzf7DtoPeryGq_JejE' \ -H 'X-Requested-With: XMLHttpRequest' \ -H 'User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15_7) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/94.0.4606.81 Safari/537.36' \ -H 'Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8' \ -H 'Origin: http://pubdump.unfufadoo.net:4567' \ -H 'Referer: http://pubdump.unfufadoo.net:4567/admin/manage/categories/80' \ -H 'Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.9,zh;q=0.8,zh-CN;q=0.7,zh-TW;q=0.6,ja;q=0.5,ko;q=0.4,th;q=0.3' \ -H 'Cookie: _csrf=27ygKMdG0c0EyiVsJKAkKpId; express.sid=s%3AdODaXfUpLz7NTFsijWLq0d2rPUhH1Ki4.qkyxWOaxlBy%2BLDRpTYbhWS9QkD9IJE%2FRTN1vIhp7yV4' \ -H 'sec-gpc: 1' \ --data '{"backgroundImage":"/assets/uploads/category/category-84.jpg"}' \ --compressed \ --insecure

    Then using the cURL convert site, was able to save as javascript and modify to our needs so that we could loop through all categories.

    @Nisthar Ok. That was because of markdown plugin being disabled.

    I had to enable "Allow HTML" option to make redactor plugin to work.

    Maybe Lock and move this thread?

    Or leave it as a reminder to anyone else that runs into similar issues with leet forums. Both work. All the informations in this topic. Or to summarise:

    We don't support it. We can't help. leet.cc for leet forum issues.
