When inline editing a website field, it deletes the field completely.

Inline adding a website does work, and it doesn't occur when editing the complete contact. I cannot find anybody else having this issue. Everybody can reproduce this on the demo site at:


but it also occurs on my own 5.11.0 (In Drupal 7.65) site. Does anybody have a solution for this?

Steps to reproduce:

  • open an existing contact with filled website field, or create one
  • click on 'Add or edit website' next to the url
  • edit the url and press Enter or click 'Save'

The website field is empty now.

  • Could you provide some more details on how one can replicate this error? If possible try attaching some screenshot or gif images. Apr 1 '19 at 16:02
  • just added steps to reproduce

  • Confirmed that it's a bug. FYI, it's best to test on dmaster.demo.civicrm.org since that always runs the latest version. The civihosting demo you linked to is out of date. Could you create an issue at lab.civicrm.org/dev/core/issues ?
