Urgent issue with dropdown options 3 years 6 months ago #55303

I have just installed LimeSurvey and so far I am very impressed however I am having some issues that are holding up my project massively.

I am trying to create a question where the question type is a List(dropdown) but once I have created the question I can not add any options. Te + and - buttons under actions dont seem to be clickable and the Predefined label sets and Quick add buttons dont do anything when you click them.

If I change the default option and click Save the page just refreshes and loses what I have done.

I have Googled this and read other forum posts so I have done the following:
1. Switched to debug mode - nothing coming up
2. Re-uploaded the package in Binary mode - made no difference

Im running PHP version 5.2.14 and the latest version of LimeSurvey.
Screen shot below of my admin page:

I also have a copy running locally on my laptop via WAMP and I am having exactly the same problem.

Any urgent help would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: Tested in IE, Firefox and Chrome.

I've just tried Opera and Safari as well and still no luck.

Apart from removing the LimeSurvey donate stuff in the page footers I've not changed any of the page configs.

Just as a bit of extra info this isnt limited to the dropdown option, I've just tried the 5 choice array and it has the same problem so looks like a problem on that page itself?

This is a common problem if not all files are uploaded correctly (most likely the JQuery part).

However, what sounds strange is that it also happens on your local installation.

Could you try to download the latest LS package again and make a new local installation?
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Are there any errors reported at Firefox's error console?

Thats for the responses.

I downloaded whichever one is linked from the main download page on here. My version file says this:

$versionnumber = "1.90+";
$dbversionnumber = 143;
$buildnumber = '9642';

I'll try downloading it again and start from scratch to see if that makes a difference.

The Firefox error consol doesnt show any errors, just warnings and they are mostly CSS issues

Right well I downloaded the package again and did a clean install on my local machine and it worked fine.

So following that I cleared out my hosted one and re-uploaded all the files again in binary mode and im still getting the same problem. Now im completely baffled

Can give me access to a sample survey on your hosted server so I can test? If so, PM me and I'll give you my coordinates.

So probably the first file wasn't downloaded completely. That would explain why the local installation didn't work but works now.

But then the problem persists on the server. Could you check if all files that are in the local installation are also on the server? Especially the Jquery files?
