All Admin functions in scrolling window. SOLVED!
« on: February 04, 2009, 00:20:26 am »
So I got everything installed & working fine.  Then all of a sudden, the sidebar area in VirtueMart (where you click on "configuration", "producs" drop down, etc.)  turned into a tiny little scrolling window with no sidebar.  I've been through the forums & tried several things.  I can't even seem to edit my virtuemart.cfg.php file. Normally, I don't have a problem chmoding any files or editing them.  My server has very few restrictions at my account level.  I can see my 'configuration' in a mini scrolling window, but there is no sidebar & I can't access functions without clicking on the top link to VirtueMart in components.
I've searched the entire forums.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry, I'm using Mambo 4.5.6 & newest VM.

What do you mean by "newest VM"? Have you tried a different browser? If any form of SEF is enabled then disable it.

I don't use Mambo & don't know anyone who does now, so have no other suggestions.

By VM I mean, the latest release of VirtueMart.  SEF is disabled.  It's only in FireFox that it happens.  I found a different thread that had the same problem.  There has to be a way to fix it so it works in Firefox again.  Internet Explorer is more vulernable & slow to load, but I can see the sidebar.  The reason the sidebar is missing is because I accidentally hit "Extended View".  There has to be a way to get it back to "Simple View" so it works in the browser I prefer.

Ok, I got it fixed.  You must log out of your admin, then clear out your cache, AND the cookies.  Viola!  Simple View is defaulted again.  :)
