I am trying to access Content -> Configuration -> Edit (my theme name) but as soon as i hit edit the page will load but get stuck on an Ajax loader gif. See screenshot.


I have cleared out the cache, cleared static content etc to no avail. Any idea?

Here's a copy of the browser console

JQMIGRATE: Migrate is installed with logging active, version 1.4.1
file-uploader.js:173 Uncaught ReferenceError: Base64 is not defined
    at UiClass.processFile (file-uploader.js:173)

  • Can you post the browser console error log?

Taken from another site, this has fixed the problem - seems like it only effected version 2.3

Open those files
