Does a faster server mean a faster CP? YES In your case is "shared hosting" - sometimes can happens that some site which share the same resources (DB or CPU) just take it all. So best advice for this - change hosting. Are there any hard, fast rules to speed up the CP? On shared hosting is not too much ways to speed up CP. You need to analyse CP page one-...

You can find the available CP themes at http://devot-ee.com/add-ons/filter?t=cpt - but in the end EE and WP are different applications, think about content differently, and hence require different architectures in the Control Panel.

I'd recommend giving Zoo Flexible Admin a whirl. It allows you to create a custom menu in the control panel per member group - and that is a pretty powerful thing when it comes to reorganizing the menus in the control panel, labelling them in a manner that makes sense for your client and stripping out anything they really don't need to see or even have ...

I'm getting the same issue since upgrading to OS X Yosemite. I suspect the real issue is your version of PHP has been upgraded to PHP 5.6. While upgrading the OS I also swapped to PHP 5.6 and now all EE sites with debug mode enabled display this PHP notice. Someone else on the EllisLab forums has had the same issue and a fix has been posted: https://...

Well, this is very easy. You just need to call jQuery on a cp_js_end hook. Just copy and paste the code below. Instructions: Access your EE install via FTP and go to the folder system/user/addons Create a folder inside addons folder and name it button_move Create a file inside it named addon.setup.php and paste this code inside it: <?php return array( ...

Try adding the following and change the cookie prefix: $config['cookie_domain'] = ""; $config['cookie_path'] = ""; $config['cookie_prefix'] = ""; $config['admin_session_type'] = "s"; $config['user_session_type'] = "c"; $config['require_ip_for_login'] = "n"; $config['require_ip_for_posting'] = "n"; $config['secure_forms'] = "n";

If you mean that the control panel pages appear without style and formatting this sounds like a path issue. In the control panel, go to Admin > General Configuration and check the URL to your "themes" folder and Theme Folder Path are both correct. If that's not it, then I'd double check the permissions on the themes folder. You can also use your web ...

Big thanks to Joel Bradbury for solving this one. I needed to add $config['disable_csrf_protection'] = 'y'; to my config. Here's why: It'll be because the tokens have been generated on a different base domain, and then it's moved and gotten stuck. Normally they're regenerated when they're detected as expired, but if it see's them as not expired, but ...

If you want a whole lot more control over column display in the channel > edit area, you should look at the add-on Zenbu. It will allow you to customize the way channel entry content is displayed in the control panel, per channel, and per member group. (If on the other hand you need to display some content that isn't in the channel entries in a column, I ...

There seems to have been a recent change in the gmap API. See if this thread can shed some light on your issue. Apparently changing $this->EE->theme_loader->javascript('https://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=true'); to $this->EE->theme_loader->javascript('https://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?v=3.22&sensor=true'); in gmap/ft....

I made Category Field for that very reason. http://devot-ee.com/add-ons/category-field

Change the Control Panel Session Type to "Cookies only". Control Panel Location: Admin ‣ Security and Privacy ‣ Security and Sessions Only cookies are used to track the admin user. When this setting is used a “remember me” checkbox will appear next to the Control Panel login page, enabling users to stay permanently logged in.

I've seen this before as well and it seems to be something that can happen with Media Temple hosting when FastCGI is enabled. It looks like you're using MediaTemple so I'm guessing that's your issue. There are a couple threads in the EE Forums about this: Control Panel Giving JSON Responses in the Browser on Content Edit / Update Error When Submitting ...

This is a bug in EE 2.7.3 when Secure Forms is disabled. It is currently marked as "fixed in upcoming release". (Bug tracker link.)

This was a browser extension problem for me. LastPass has an "auto fill" feature that seems to conflict in some way with the way checkboxes work in the EE control panel. Disabling auto fill for the particular site worked.

Try this free extension from the mighty Low! http://gotolow.com/addons/low-seg2cat/docs Working with categories? Then you need Low Seg2Cat. This extension will give you information about categories present in the URI, in the form of early parsed global variables. No more PHP in your templates just to retrieve a category ID, no more awkward category ...

This feature has moved to the "Layouts" section of the Channel Manager. (See docs.)

It seems they moved this feature to be in a drop down menu rather than directly in the main UI. I loved adding links to the top of the old EE, made things quick. But now they are in the top right corner under your username dropdown. When you click on your username you'll see a "new link" option, along with any other links you've already added. You can ...

Silly me, I hadn't copyied up my new version of the themes folder. Hopefully this will be of help to someone else with a short-term memory!

You should use "Stay Forever" extension. http://johndwells.com/blog/stay-up-forever-take-control-of-ee-session-time-limit http://devot-ee.com/add-ons/stay-up-forever In this extension you can set control panel session length.

The cleanest way is to create an accessory add-on that will add your js to all pages in the cp. Here's a basic example called "Default Value." Change the name and code as needed. <?php if ( ! defined('BASEPATH')) exit('No direct script access allowed'); /** * ExpressionEngine Developer Accessory * * @package Default Value * @category ...

If you're looking for robust tracking of user actions in the Control Panel than what EE provides, there is Audit (and Audit Pro). Audit adds some additional user tracking beyond what EE does. Here is the list of what it tracks, from its page on Devot:ee Member Logins, including Control Panel & front-end Member Logouts, including Control Panel &...

Adding another OR should work: {if author_id == logged_in_member_id OR logged_in_group_id == "1" OR logged_in_group_id == "6" } Edit This Page ⇑ {/if}

As Alex mentions, when a user has "Can delete members" rights, he/she can delete any member. A different approach would be to, not allow to delete members, but to only allow users to be moved to a member group with no (login) rights at all. You can restrict to which group a member can be assigned by setting the group to "locked". If needed, the restricted ...

possible I misunderstand the question. You can try Entry Type - dropdown fieldtype that shows/hides other fields on the publish page.

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

A RewriteRule with a regex should do the trick. RewriteRule ^/assets_content/_thumbs/?\.svg$ /assets_content/$1.svg [NC,L]

Have you customised the publish layout at all? If you have a hidden field that is required, it won't allow you to save, and obviously won't be visible so you can see that it's required! Ensure that all fields are visible and when it returns to the edit screen (without saving), check all the tabs and all fields to ensure there's none highlighted as being ...

Have you tried disabling all extensions via the config file? /system/expressionengine/config/config.php $config['allow_extensions'] = 'n'; That will temporarily stop the extensions from loading but it doesn't remove them. If you look in the database at the table exp_accessories what is listed in there? Try deleting any rows in there except the default ...
