I have implemented a GUI Extension in Web 8.1 to add new column in DashboardView for last published date. The functionality is working fine but after implementation, when I open CMS Pages and Components are stuck in loading state.

Could not found any error log in core.log and event viewer log.

Refer Below screen short.

Note: I have deployed same extension on Web 8.5 and it's working fine there but not working on client server Web 8.1.

Any pointer will be highly appreciated

Console error log for page and component.

  • The JS file for your GUI extension might cause the issue. It's executing some code which is preventing the content loading. Please check your code in JS file Aug 10, 2017 at 7:33
  • Please check console for any JS related error.

Please update Editor.Config dependency reference namespaces as per sdl web 8.1

 <!-- <cfg:dependencies>
          <!--<cfg:dependency>Example.UiCoreService.Editor.Base</cfg:dependency> -->
 <!-- </cfg:dependencies> -->

**Update js the Reference namespaces. **/Scripts/ExtendedPage.js /Scripts/ExtendedComponent.js****

Tridion.OO.enableInterface(this, "TEST.Tridion.RTFExtensions.ComponentEx");
