unable to edit theme scripts

RichardB Member

Zenphoto version 1.5.7 (Official build)
Current locale setting: en_US.UTF8
Server software: Apache
PHP version: 7.3.20
Graphics support: PHP GD library bundled (2.1.0 compatible)
supporting: gif, jpg, jpeg, png, wbmp
PHP memory limit: 1024M (Note: Your server might allocate less!)
MySQLi version: 5.6.47

In Zenphoto installations on a particular website on this server I am unable to edit the theme scripts.
I have tried more than one installation in this web site - same result:

I can click on edit and a new window opens but it is blank

On another website on this same server I do not have the same problem.

Any suggestions please?

I am baffled,

    You are probably referring to the theme editor? You need full admin rights to edit them. Otherwise blank window means some serious error mostly or file/folder permissions mismatcht. Please review your logs.

    I really recommend to edit themes files on a local server setup using a proper code editor instead.

    Thank you. Yes, the theme editor.

    the debug.log gives this error:

    EXCEPTION (0): Too few arguments to function isTextFile(), 1 passed in .../zp-core/admin-themes-editor.php on line 45 and exactly 2 expected in .../zp-core/admin-themes-editor.php on line 23

    which appears to be this line:

    function isTextFile($file, $ok_extensions) {

    I think that is fixed in the support build/1.5.8b already.

    Yes - it is!

    Thank you,
