Not all changes to app.conf are sticking


I recently enabled the option to default to summary screen in records in app.conf. I tried it out, decided I didn’t want to keep it that way and set the configuration back to default “0”.
Now, I cannot see anything but this (in screenshot attached). I tested other changes in app.conf like changing the nav header color etc. and I saw those changes immediately. Not sure what happened but I can’t edit or view data for any records now!


  • Try setting it to 00 (two zeros). Does that make a difference?

  • Yes and no. Now I can actually see the summary but still can't see the other editing screens.

  • Then I'm guessing you somehow deleted your user interface configuration. Check how the UI is set up under Manage > Administrate > User interfaces

  • The UI editor and UI screen editor are there and the standard object editor is as it should be. ?
