after upgrading CiviCRM 5.2.1 in contacts I contribution tab disappeared. Contact tabs

And "Contribution" is checked in Display preferences. Display preference

I discovered that it depends that when I save admin/setting/preferences/display there is not saved the value 7 for CiviContribute in table civicrm_setting. I have executed this query update: UPDATE `civicrm_setting` SET `value` = 's:27:\"123457910111314\";' WHERE `id` = 1

I do not know what it depends...

I have another strange thing: the field civicrm_option_value.label is missing (there are label_it_IT and label_en_US instead). civicrm_option_value

I updated CiviCRM from version 4.7.27 and my database has a lot of views. I notice recent CiviCRM database does not have views instead.

What do you suggest me? Thanks

  • Check the CiviContribute component is enabled at 'Administer > System Settings > Components` ... but if was enabled previously it should not have been disabled by the upgrade.

  • Yes, it was enabled previously and now! A strange thing is that the tab disappeared when I gave ok in admin/setting/preferences/display (uncheck and check Enable popup forms) because I had this problem in view Missing column 'frontend_title' in ''civicrm_uf_field_it_IT" after upgrading to 5.1.2 that I have fixed.

  • I think i have read other tickets about upgrade issues with multilingual sites - since you mention "label_it_IT and label_en_US" this could be part of the issue. May be worth adding that tag to your question

Switch in English language. In "display preferences" you will find the un-flaged contribution field. Flag it and return in Italian language. You will see that it works. I do not know what the reason is, but it works.

"...a buon rendere!" ;)
