For reference, I'm using:
Drupal Core 6.14
Ubercart 6.x-2.0-rc6
Fivestar 6.x-1.18
Voting API 6.x-2.3

Anyway - I just upgraded from Drupal Core 6.13 to 6.14. When I did, the Fivestar field on my product pages disappeared, despite all Voting & Fivestar modules being re-enabled.

When I go to the "Manage Fields" section of my Product content type, I see the following errors:

"This content type has inactive fields. Inactive fields are not included in lists of available fields until their modules are enabled."
"Product Rating (field_product_rating) is an inactive Fivestar Rating field that uses a Stars widget."

Similarly, this field (field_product_rating) no longer shows up on my list of fields.

I do not know what is driving this error. The only thing I can think of is that when I created this field, the widget was called a "Fivestar" widget (I think), and now the system seems to be looking for a "Stars" widget.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Same happens to me. Just upgraded to Drupal 6.14 from 6.10... Using the same modules that brycesenz is.

This has apparently been an issue before with FiveStar during updates. I found a workaround here:

If you're able to get into your MySQL tables, there are two fields that control FiveStar activation. During the upgrade, they're apparently getting set to 0 and need to be manually reset to 1. Pretty easy to do if you've got phpMyAdmin or some other interface with your database. I had a similar problem, followed the steps (described in detail at the node address above), and things are back to normal. Worth noting for future upgrades until it gets fixed.

Thanks for the issue reference.

A potentially easier interim solution is to visit update.php and run Fivestar update 6105.

We should probably implement hook_enable and re-activate the inactive fields. Also, marking #607532: Temporarily disabling Fivestar module leave CCK fields as "inactive" as a duplicate.

Apparently Fivestar does correctly implement hook_enable and content_notify(), but content_associate_fields() doesn't make the fields available without including first, so I added it to our implementation of hook_enable. I was able to re-create and solve the problem described here with the attached patch. It would be great to get a review before committing this.

After further thought and getting a "sounds good" from quicksketch, this is committed in the 1.x and 2.x/HEAD branches. People affected by this issue can either apply this patch, wait for the nightly dev snapshot to be re-rolled or await the next official release sometime this week.
