Okay I’ve found an issue with the advanced template and using composer to install an extension. For example I just attempted to install a Redactor extension: /vova07/yii2-imperavi-widget in the advanced template and tried to use it in a backend view and was consistently getting the following error:
[Error] TypeError: undefined is not a function (evaluating ‘jQuery("#event-description").redactor’)
(anonymous function) (create, line 312)
fire (jquery.js, line 3073)
fireWith (jquery.js, line 3185)
ready (jquery.js, line 3391)
completed (jquery.js, line 3407)
So then I created a basic app and, using composer, was able to install and SUCCESSFULLY use the redactor extension widget.
So my question is: Do I need to do anything different with an advanced app to install extensions?
Okay just tried to use the widget on a FRONTEND view of my advanced template and it worked fine. So something is either broken in the composer process or there’s an extra step I need to take to get the components to work in a BACKEND view.
