After upgrading to Civicrm 5.21 (it's now on 5.5.3) there is no longer a drop down for changing membership when Status override is enabled.

This was working on 4.7 but sadly after the upgrade it seems to be just static.

Here is the example from the documentation


Any help much appreciated!

Update: So I fixed a JS error (maybe something with git, was in there as lower case). No fix for the drop down issue yet though..

    Can you check if you have any javascript error on browser console? Oct 3, 2018 at 9:26
  • The current version of CiviCRM is 5.5.3 and any version lower than 5.3.1 is insecure. Oct 3, 2018 at 9:35
  • @PradeepNayak No JS errors and I'm aware it needs to be on 5.3.1 or newer ASAP. Could there be a missing permission?

When upgrading check all customised files include all the correct changes for your current version.

I was missing a section of code in the membership template.
