Idle message

I just updated to ExpressionEngine to 2.7.3

To me that looks like a JS conflict with a cp add-on like Devot:EE monitor or a straight out EE theme error. Presumably on a new entry screen you'll see the file manager modal down there too.

Try replacing/re-uploading the themes folder for EE, updating the accessories to latest (or any extensions which modify the CP JS), then clear your browser cache.

  • Give clearing your browser cache a whirl before doing the rest of the items suggested here; either way, this is a good answer, I think. Jan 6, 2014 at 16:23
  • Thanks Iain I replaced the ExpressionEngine files and that did the trick! Jan 6, 2014 at 21:22
