7.12.6 Email Compose Body is Missing

I just upgraded to 7.12.6 from 7.12.4 and when going into Compose Email the body field is missing.
Before the upgrade the emails working perfect - now we have no body field.

I found in the history, this problem already exist in version 7.11.16 - but solved in Oct. 2020.
Any idea?

Can you please try deleting a few things from your server-side cache? I saw this problem myself, and I think that is how I solved it, but I’d like to make sure.

Can you please try deleting these two files in your server and see if anything changes?

cache/smarty/templates_c/%%D1^D15^D1540D1D%%ComposeView.tpl.php (the codes will be different but the Composeview.tpl.php part should be there)


I deleted those file, but nothing changed. As soon I open the crm in Browser, those files a generated new by the system. The body for the mail composer is still not here.

The point of deleting the files was precisely to ensure that they were regenerated.

But since it didn’t fix the problem I don’t know what else to try…

did you try to inspect element and see if there is something missing there?

have the same Problem (only with Edge and Chrome Browser).

There’s definitely a bug here.

Is any of you coming from an older installation that still had the SuiteR theme? If so, can you please check any mentions of SuiteR in config.php and config_override.php, and change them to SuiteP?

And you can also delete everything from cache/themes/SuiteR.

To be honest… I am not the hard coder (more an advanced user). Which elements I have to compare with?


Follow this step to step process, it should do the trick.

I started from Version 7.11 and checked if there is any waste from SuiteR Theme - nothing found…

@StefanL did you check all the logs?

  • suitecrm.log
  • php_errors.log
  • browser javascript console

Are you a developer? Can I give you a list of steps involving changes to PHP code?

This solution is from Oct 2020 and doesn’t work. The Codes are different with 7.12.6.

  • SugarFieldWysiwyg.php is complete different
    -_head.tpl is already changed in the installation

If anyone really wants to debug this I suggest the following.

Go here: SuiteCRM/SugarFieldHandler.php at master · salesagility/SuiteCRM · GitHub

And change those lines

        } else {
            $string = $field->$displayTypeFunc($parentFieldArray, $vardef, $displayParams, $tabindex);

to add some logging:

        } else {
            $c= New \ReflectionClass($field);
            $f= $c->getMethod($displayTypeFunc)->getFileName();
            $GLOBALS['log']->fatal('SugarFieldHandler.php: vardef is ' . $vardef['name'] . ' of type ' . $vardef['type'] . ' at ' . $f);
            $string = $field->$displayTypeFunc($parentFieldArray, $vardef, $displayParams, $tabindex);

Now, between each test you have to go and delete some cached tpls:

cache/smarty/templates_c/%%D1^D15^D1540D1D%%ComposeView.tpl.php (the codes can be different but the Composeview.tpl.php part should be there)

cache/themes/SuiteR/modules/Emails/ComposeView.tpl (if it exists, but probably it won’t)

Then, visit the Compose window once and you will see messages in the logs explaining which files were used for each SugarField. The ones you are interested in are description and description_html. Tell me what you find.
