I'm installing my first 2.8 on a local machine, and noticed that the Field Options aren't showing up.

I retraced the steps and it turns out installing latest version of Matrix (2.5.10) breaks Field Options (i.e., FO stops showing up.)

Only CP related add-on I have is NSM's Override.css.

Has anyone else encountered a similar issue?

  • The error I was getting was Uncaught TypeError: Object 153 has no method 'replace'. It's not the error described in the support post Brandon linked below, but the patch provided does fix this for me. Mar 12, 2014 at 15:24
  • If like me you got your theme path wrong it will produce the same problem. Just thought I'd add this in case it helps someone.

There’s a Javascript bug in EE 2.8.0 that breaks the field settings page and other areas of the CP when certain add-ons are installed, including Matrix. It’ll be fixed in 2.8.1, and EllisLab has posted a patch file here: https://support.ellislab.com/bugs/detail/20165

  • Thanks for the heads-up here Brandon. The fix worked perfectly. Mar 13, 2014 at 9:15
