I have used in D6 and am now using D7.

I have noticed a couple times in D7 only, Manage Form will be set and then at some point resets itself, so all fields are back in the Main Column.

I am clueless as to what causes this. I don't know when it happens, because I only eventually I notice it.

Documenting it in case it happens to others.

For what ever reason, this is now stable for me. I can't think that I've done anything different, but somehow the stars seem to have aligned.

Paul, can u try to:

rebuild permissions
flush cache
run cron
run update.php

after all that, it's still working?

MrPaulDriver’s picture

Well actually I have just flushed the cache, run cron and update.php because of the views update.

Not sure how to rebuild permissions but happy to do if you can tell me how.

This has not happened to my site since writing the issue. Don't know why. Perhaps an update somewhere or removal of a conflcting module.

MrPaulDriver’s picture

kervi I rebuilt the permissions and it is still OK, but I certainly had the problem for a while.

I have been experimenting with a number of different module, some of which I have since uninstalled. Perhaps itserich is correct?

This happens when you delete any content type. This is because of the bug in the nodeformcols_node_type_delete function
You should replace the line 178:

->condition('name', 'nodeformscols_field_placements_' . $info->old_type . '%', 'LIKE')


->condition('name', 'nodeformscols_field_placements_' . $info->type . '%', 'LIKE')

This is because in the hook_node_type_delete the $info variable does not have "old_type" parameter. So this is why the hook clears all the nodeformcols settings from the variables table.

Thanks Nor4a

I noticed a form had changed at some time, again.

I made the change in #9 at nodeformcols.module, created test content type, changed that content type's form, deleted the content type, cleared cache, and other forms are still displaying proper form.
