-----SOLUTION--------
In joomla 3.4.2 helix2 - save button problem has been solved ;)
go to 'plugins\system\helix\js\admin\layout.admin.js' on 143 no line just remove ' return false;'
that's it

In next update we will add this fix also.

Very sorry for delay, we didn't expect that J3.4.2 will change some many aspects

I deleted all kinds of cache from the browsers and Joomla. The result is the same.
The problem present only in shaper_vocal template styles manager. Protostar and the breeze3 "styles manager" still working fine.

Hi Robert!
For a quick fix, use the Android + Opera browser. This combination is working with template styles. But for the PC, none of browsers (IE, Chrome, Mozilla, Spartan) can save the changes. Let's wait for a fix!

Best Wishes!

Hi, It's not a template issue, but Joomla cache and session.
Please in browser settings clean all cookies and temporary cache and try again.


Sorry, but that's a problem with your templates!

I use NewsPlus and am having the same problem. I purged Joomla caches. Empty browser session history, cookies, and files by adding a private view window -> same result with Safari, Chromium, and Firefox.

Only system difference compared to yesterday. Update to Joomla 3.4.2. All my other templates work fine, only yours bug ... :(

Thank you for your serious answers and updates

Yes, we have discovered it's because of main change in Joomla 3.4 core which broken this basic feature in Helix2 framework.
We are working on solution, please be patient. Thanks.

Yes i tried changing the code in 'plugins\system\helix\js\admin\layout.admin.js' on 143 no line just removed ' return false;'
and also cleared all cache.

I cannot resolve the issue, had to cancel the update and move back to previous version of joomla. I have also helix3 installed and it works fine. I also have protostar and works fine. It is definetely a template issue with helix II newsplus

I am using sportson template and it doesn't work for me either. I have tried updating to 2.1.9 and making the change to the js file, but nothing works. Has anyone who made this work got the real solution or is this not working for anyone?

try applying the proposed solution but instead of deleting the line just replace statement false with true. That worked for me

ARGHHHH !!!
Wish I had known about this issue before purchasing!!!

Just downloaded, spent ages trying to get it to work ...you'd think that if the template doesn't work with latest Joomla version, you would take the responsibility to let people know before download/purchase :(

Have you got a fix yet, or do I would to seek a refund? The template manager doesn't work and without that, it's no good!

Thank you. This solution worked for us with the Organic Life template. One user had to clear her browser cache to see the change, but otherwise is working. Looking forward to the update.

Thank you, for me with the correction mentioned above (go to plugins \ system \ helix \ js \ admin \ layout.admin.js 'on 143 just remove the line' return false;) worked perfectly.
I love the Helix ... and version 3 is great !!
Congratulations !!!

@westlakenation,

Please try changing "false" to "true" instead of removing "return false".

Sorry, but Joomla 3.4 is not supported any more.
Please update to J3.5.1 or J3.6.
Then update template to last version!
You can also Install Helix3 template if you made too many changes in template core files.
This Helix3 will update only framework plugin

Hi Guys

In my experience... whenever the save buttons stop working after updates you only need to clear your browser's cache and it is resolved.

thank you JoeSA, as you said it, just clear web browser cache

@Mansour - some browsers have addons Clear Cache One Click button, it's good idea to have something like that.

I use the Internet browser in private mode, to avoid erasing other data

Honestly, I cannot say that it's the best available browser.
