I know there are multiple topics concerning this subject but I can't get my error fixed. I was on magento 1.8, everything was working great but suddenly I got the problem that in the checkout module, I can't continue to Shipping Information. Continue just doesn't do anything. Unless (and now the fun part starts) I use Ship to Different adress (bottom option). Then it DOES continue. I have upgraded to 1.9 but same problem. I can't find any errors (not in the log, in magento or apache and not in the JS, f12 in chrome), it works using the default template but my template only has the files in the checkout folder:


cart/some irrelevent files i guess

My template realy doesn't do that much i recon!

I know this isn't a really high quality post but is there anyone who can point me in the right direction?

found this solution and it worked for me :-)

After look in everywhere I found out it was just an update on the layout. I went to /app/design/frontend/base/default/template/checkout/onepage/payment.phtml and changed that around the line 36:

adding the id “checkout-payment-method-load” to fieldset so change line 36 from fieldset to fieldset id="checkout-payment-method-load"

Just add the below code inside the Form in this path


<div class="fieldset" ">
        <?php echo $this->getChildChildHtml('methods_additional', '', true, true) ?>
      <fieldset id="checkout-payment-method-load">
        <?php echo $this->getChildHtml('methods') ?>
        <?php echo $this->getBlockHtml('formkey') ?>

    Surely the above won't work as the html breaks on the 1st line: <div class="fieldset" "> Jul 31, 2019 at 10:55
