Issue: For some reason, editing from the frontend, the following buttons, Save, Save and Close and Cancel does not work. Clicking on any does not do anything.

I have installed:

  • Joomla version 3 latest to date, 3.4.8
  • Joomla Template - Joom Shaper, Radon
  • Helix Framework version 2.2

Fixes / Solutions:

Disable the Helix V2 Shortcode Generator plugin

  • Go to Backend > Extensions > Plugins, find then disable Helix Shortcode Generator
  • refresh frontpage, login, then test editing

Other possible fix to this javascript bug / incompatibility issue:,-close,-save-close-buttons-not-working

  • Download file, open to edit:
  • Somewhere on line 143, just remove ' return false;' or replace 'false' with 'true', or simply delete the "return false" argument

Or, try upgrading Helix version 2 to the latest, to date, Helix 3 Framework (untested from my end)

Hope this helps!
