Mark Schultz created the topic: item edit form linked from menu does not work properly after upgrading to 2.9
I am running joomla 3.8.13 and k2 2.9

I had created a menu item that links to an item edit form. I created a custom template. It was working fine until I upgraded to 2.9 from 2.8.

Now the custom template is not used, the default template is used no matter what.
Also, the Target Window isn't working, when I set it to Parent, it reverts to New with Navigation on Save.

I've tried creating a new menu item, copying the form template to a new location, nothing changes.

Anybody else seeing this issue or have a thought? thanks.

Where is the itemform.php sub-template file located inside your Joomla template's structure?

/templates/themename/html/com_k2/templates/templatename/itemform.php

The templatename does appear in the dropdown as a choice but is ignored when displayed.

Move /templates/themename/html/com_k2/templates/templatename/ to /templates/themename/html/com_k2/templatename/. You have a very old templates override structure.

I moved the templates to /templates/themename/html/com_k2/templatename/
still ignores the setting

and the Target Window isn't working, when I set it to Parent, it reverts to New with Navigation on Save.

any other thoughts? thanks.

Has anyone else seen this issue?

I am running joomla 3.8.13 and k2 2.9. I had created a menu item that links to an item edit form. I created a custom template for the item edit form and it was working fine until I upgraded to 2.9 from 2.8. Has anyone seen this issue on any version of K2?

Now the custom template is not used, the default template is used no matter what.
Also, the Target Window isn't working, when I set it to Parent, it reverts to New with Navigation on Save.

I've tried creating a new menu item, copying the form template to a new location, nothing changes.

The itemform.php has completely changed in recent versions. Please copy the contents of the included file in itemform.php and work on that. First try placing your new itemform.php inside the /html/com_k2/default/ folder to see if everything is OK. Let me know.

When I put itemform.php in /html/com_k2/default/ that version is used, and is used no matter what else I do.
I tried putting a v2.9 itemform.php in a new template folder and selecting that, and it still uses the default.
My guess is the issue lies elsewhere because the Target Window dropdown isn't working too, when I set it to Parent, it reverts to New with Navigation on Save every time.

Do you think reinstalling 2.9 might help?

Reinstalling K2 2.9.0 had no effect. Anything else I can try? thanks.
