I've created some custom data and fields that I now need to delete, but I don't see any options for deletion- only the option to add. Also, I'm unable to edit a custom data group once it's created.

I've also noticed additional administration options are also missing in other CiviCRM administration interfaces e.g. membership renewal, delete, auto-renewal and billing detail options.

If you have CiviCRM shoreditch extension enabled on your site than try adding below line in your theme css file

.crm-container span.btn-slide {
    display: unset !important;

Thanks Pradeep

  • The Shoreditch css? or Drupal?

    I installed the "Asset Injector" module in Drupal and added this CSS. I can now see the options for Custom Data and Custom Fields! Thanks! Will this fix affect any other missing options, or are the selectors specific to the Custom Data/Fields pages?

    This is very much a very temporary solution. 🙃 Sep 7, 2020 at 13:29

    Thanks for the suggested fix - for others we found display: inline-flex !important; worked better with our admin theme

Shoreditch is officially designed to work with 5.24.2 so expect issues when running it with the latest CiviCRM security release.

You may just want to disable it!

  • I do- it was required for an extension. Don't think I can disable?

    Which Extension requires it? What you can do is disable it -> Delete the Custom Field (or what you want to do) and then re-enable it again. Sep 5, 2020 at 20:07
  • It's required for CiviCase and when I try to disable it won't let me.

  • Is there any way to use CiviCRM without Shoreditch?
