SocialEngine 4: Category and Dropdowns Empty When Editing Profile

Occasionally, while using Internet Explorer, category and tab dropdowns are empty when creating or editing profile fields. This is caused by a bug in Mootools 1.2.x which reports DOM ready before theDOM is ready. This bug will be fixed in mootools v2.0.


To fix this problem, open the file./templates/admin_fields.tpl using a text editor. Around line 83, find the line of code that looks like this:

1 window.addEvent('domready', function(){

Change this line to:

window.addEvent('load', function(){

This should now fix your problem
