On version 1.5.0-RC-5 to 1.5.0-RC-10 the advanced Menu Command text box is missing and I am unable modify the advanced boot menu.
Yep just seeing this issue in Chrome with Windows 10.
@sebastian-roth happening in
chrome and Firefox (but not edge or explorer) on Windows 10 and
chromium and Firefox on Lubuntu 17.10 and
Firefox (but not safari) on Mac OS Sierra
@RipAU Thanks! Is this Chrome on Windows?? I have Chrome on Debian Linux and no issue with that. At first I though it could be CSS related but that
id="advtext"is just that, an identifier. So far I haven’t found any related CSS code. This is interesting.
Ahh yep, if I edit the HTML and just remove:
The text box re-appears, so yes I’m assuming it is related to the CSS?
Just FYI, I tested it with the latest Firefox and the text box is working. It only appears to be having an issue in Chrome for me.
@RipAU Thanks! On the right side of that Inspect/Debug view you see all the CSS stuff being assigned to the element you select on the left. You can even live edit the CSS values locally in that view to see if you can make it work again.
Just noticed on my test server (Version 1.5.0-RC-10) that the text box is working with Internet Explorer 11 and Edge Browser but missing on the latest Chrome (Version 62.0.3202.94.) I haven’t been able to test with firefox yet sorry.
I’m not a web developer so I’m not exactly sure what I’m looking for with chrome inspect:
textarea isn’t missing on my current box.
So it’s probably something CSS is doing to it to make it invisible. I’d love to look at it myself but can’t replicate the issue. Are you familiar with how debugging HTML/CSS/JS works in Firefox?
@sebastian-roth tested in firefox and chrome on multiple OSs, textarea isn’t missing on my current box.
@fud18 @Junkhacker Which browser do you use? If you have Chrome or Firefox can you please right click into the page where the text box should be, then click
Inspect Element(Firefox). In my case the HTML code looks like this:
... <td class="col-xs-6 form-group"> <div class="input-group"> <textarea id="advtext" class="form-control" name="adv"></textarea> </div> </td> ...
<textarea ...>tag missing in your case?
@Quazz As well you might post a picture of what you see.
@junkhacker Interesting, I am running Centos 7 and it still works fine for me.
Is there anything relevant in apache logs?
@quazz i can confirm the existence of this problem with 1.5.0-RC10 on Ubuntu 16.04.3-LTS. knowing the user (he’s a coworker) his server will be CentOS.
I do not experience this issue on 1.5 RC 10 personally.
What OS are you running?

I solved this issue on my server by removing id=“advtext” from line 795 in the /var/www/fog/lib/pages/fogconfigurationpae.class.php file.
