Apologies if I am missing something fundamental here - I'm pretty sure I am, but just can't work it out: I have an event registration form for public. As admin user logged in, form appears fine. As public (no user login/private window) profile fields appear OK. However, priceset fields only show the field notes; field label, input field and price field do not appear.

Details of event form: - Additional delegate registration in addition to self enabled; - Simple profile with personal contact information and employer field from Organization - Relatively detailed Priceset with field notes - all fields enabled for public - usual Drupal/Backdrop civi permissions enabled for public event forms (profile create, custom data, register for events, view event info, view event participants) - No payment processor (pay later only - invoices enabled).

CiviCRM 5.17.4 Backdrop 1.14 tested in Firefox and Chrome - same issue. environment: shared hosting (WebhostUK - Linux Business Cloud Webhosting)

Edit: adding screenshot side-by-side, admin view on left, public view on right

  • Is there anything in the debugging/backtrace or Backdrop watchdog?

  • @Laryn Thanks for checking. Typical console output for a price-set field: Array (10) fields => Array (6) 9 => Array (14) id => "9" name => "1st_exhbition_delegate_bundle_inc_tab..." label => "1st exhbition delegate bundle inc tab..." html_type => "Text" is_enter_qty => "1" help_post => "1st exhibitor delegate bundle include..." weight => "1" is_display_amounts => "1" options_per_line => "1" is_active => "1" visibility => "public" visibility_id => "1" is_required => "0" options => Array (0) Commented Sep 17, 2019 at 15:31
  • @Laryn will look at BD watchdog later today Commented Sep 17, 2019 at 15:48
  • Can you also add a screenshot, maybe? Trying to visualize.

    @Laryn-CEDC.org - thanks for the time you took to look at this. While the Backdrop/Civi combination is a bit of an experiment, it has a real life application and I wanted to get this up online as soon as I can. I dropped the database tables and reinstalled Civi - success (no real data to lose). All works as expected. On my original installation, my web host system defaulted all tables to iSAM engine. I had them convert to innoDB and perhaps there was a corruption/similar. Happy to say seems to be working fine now. Thanks again for your attention. Commented Sep 17, 2019 at 22:41

As had no data to speak of in db, dropped tables in Civi db and reinstalled CiviCRM. Replicated form and works as expected.
