Save Section to Library is still not working

Updating YooTheme Pro v1.3.4 caused some errors. Here are few i have encountered:
1. Can not save section to the library. It allows to save but after reloading, saved section disappears.
2. Module list vanished.



Avatar carl.gerhard.wieners answered

1.3.x is a complete and utter mess. Apart from non working parts 1.3.4 now kills the whole page. Having such an error in a productive environment for versions > 1.x + no reaction on the support forums is an absolute NOGO !

I didn't subscribe for half a year of beta testing. Re-considering my plans to update to the big subscription at the moment...


Avatar selfmed answered

Is there really no one in 2 months who can investigate the blank changelog bug?



Avatar timzuidgeest answered

First off, awesome update! Keep 'm coming!

Not a huge fan of:
"Removed Custom dropdown width for single navbar items" > Why is this? I kind of need it for a project, and it makes sense to have them custom. Can't this be arranged in a different fashion?

All the best,



Avatar softforge answered

About 8 years ago I got fed up with all the individual (pre widget kit being a host of things) yootools maybe or maybe not changing as well as the templates.
The changelog was always only in the tool or template, so without downloading them all you could not tell.
I asked if a changelog of all could be done to help developers know what should and should not be updated as the only way was to every month download the lot and waste a lot of time (and bandwidth) checking every one out.

So I started doing a monthly post of all the changelogs so all the other developers would not have wasted time..
After about 5 months and lots of people asking the same it finally appeared.Most sites have a page with their changelog and its not in a support area so people can see if they need to renew their licence or if that promised feature has finally been added and its worth repaying and updating.
It was later dropped but at least we had the update feature in joomla.

Such a feeling of deja vu and I need to now check again to see if yootheme pro has got to the stage we can actually use it ie clients edit without having to be an administrator!! Like actually using the ACL and a registered user being able to post an article unpublished and an editor editing it.

Thanks for doing this joshgilson

Hopefully one day as they make the changes yootheme will do a publicly accessible (not subscription only) changelog, only 8 years and lots of people asking.

One Question: How can I switch to german language in Version 1.2.16?


Avatar marcel.dunkelberg answered

At the moment I'm a bit concerned of losing my progress with every update. I now have encountered an issue, where one of my pages completely lost its design and reverted back to wordpress style. Guys, I love Yootheme Pro but this is very frustrating at the moment. Every update fixes one thing and breaks other.


Avatar softforge answered

impactdesign,its a volunteer who is maintaining this changelog not YOOTHEME so if its blank...you can always download, work it out and post it rather than keep saying its blank


Avatar no64 answered

Have you changed anything for section-BackgroundImage-fixed position?
With update to v.1.3.1 the bgr image is now shaking a bit when scrolling on Safari.


Avatar emmanouil answered

Latest version (1.3.3) and the changelog is still blank in the admin.

Updating YooTheme Pro v1.3.4 caused some errors
Error :
0 - Argument 1 passed to YOOtheme\Theme\Builder::YOOtheme\Theme{closure}() must be an instance of YOOtheme\Theme\BuilderElement, instance of stdClass given

Message 1 :
Not available on this page. The builder can only be used on static pages. It does not work on blogs, shops or other dynamically generated content.
Message 2 :
Theme is not assigned to this page.


Avatar kunjan answered

Resizing image from the builder does not take an affect. It shows the result on the builder itself but does nothing on the frontend. I am not sure if its happening only for me or everyone else

Avatar danny.malouin answered

Any hint as to when we're going to be able to see fully translatable layouts for the header, top & footer ? These are important!

Also, any news about seting up fixed modules positions such as top-a, top-b, content-top, sidebar.

I cross my fingers each time i see a changelog but these are still unattended so I figured i'd ask this time.



Avatar anna.robinson answered


Love your website! Very good example of the benefits of YOOtheme Pro :-)


Avatar niall.sheehan answered

1.3.3 - Seems to break Edit Article Page from back end. Firefox and Chrome do not display the Article tabs, only the Page Builder Button, in IE no Page Builder button, but the tabs are present. - Page Builder doesn't work in IE.


Avatar timzuidgeest answered

I second Andrea's post about the disappearing of the tabs:

When will you fix the social icons to go into the mobile nav on smaller devices?


Avatar pascal.kemper answered

Been working with 1.3.3 till today...

Upgraded to 1.3.6 and my (fortunately) non-production site vanished...

When trying to open Website Builder, the following message shows up: Das Theme ist dieser Seite nicht zugeordnet.

Even after clearing browser- and server-cache, after re-assigning every single page to the yoo-theme, after un- and reinstalling yootheme pro, the website builder doesn't show up as it should.


Fallback to version 1.3.3 > everything is OK.

Tried nearly every troubleshooting step from other posts in order to get 1.3.6 up and running... removed custom css code on database side, changed php version, etc. Nothing helped.

Please investigate on this issue and provide a working solution asap.

New version 1.3.8 installed today... same issue as in 1.3.6 theme not assigned.

I'm sorry to say... feeling like a beta testuser for yootheme pro!

Fallback - once again - to version 1.3.3



Avatar kunjan answered

Issue with image path. It was fine on older version but i am not sure from which version it occurred.
Should have been: images/abc.jpg
instead its taking full path like fjord/images/abc.jpg


Avatar kunjan answered

Joomla TAG issue:
Joomla Article TAG disappears when you save joomla content using PAGE BUILDER.
This issue has never been addressed since the very first version.
