Help - updating profile forms from the front-end has broken over the last few updates. I have the following shortcode used on a Wordpress page:

[civicrm component="profile" gid="14" mode="edit" hijack="0"]

Upon viewing the page, I get the ""No records of type '' found" error: enter image description here

If the shortcode is set to "view", it displays fine.

This occurs with me logged in with admin privileges.


  • Which version of Civicrm are you using?? Commented Sep 30, 2015 at 9:02
  • Oops, sorry, I'm using CiviCRM 4.6.8 and WordPress 4.3.1.

  • Hi Ramesh, sorry for not replying - I've been away! The site is mltawa.asn.au and the forms are for updating membership information (profiles). It's still occuring and I'd love to fix it before our membership round (next month).

Doh! Not sure if this is what others found, but I'm ashamed to say the error message:

"No records of type '' found."

is shown when none of the fields in the Custom Data set are set to "Display in table" (!)
