I can't seem to create any custom fields. I'm on the /civicrm/admin/custom/group page and I choose the "Add Set of Custom Fields" button. After filling out the form (setting "Used For" = Contribution) and hitting the Save button, I'm taken back to the /civicrm/admin/custom/group page, but my new Custom Data group isn't visible.

There are no error messages in the browser, nor in Watchdog. What could be going wrong here? I'm logged in as user_id=1.

I'm using CiviCRM 4.6.10 on Drupal 7.41.

  • Does the new Set of Fields show in the database in table civicrm_custom_group, ie is it being created but your page isn't loading it?

  • Do you know how/have you tried creating the custom group from the API explorer or the Drush commandline? Might give you a chance to see an error message.

  • Have you moved the database recently? Check your database triggers.

Is there an error in the log file in sites/default/files/civicrm/ConfigAndLog/ ?
