U4-11267 - Date picker Umbraco.Date does not work or allow manual value entry (Must choose at least one picker)

Created by Chris Kobel 25 Apr 2018, 18:37:10 Updated by Edgar Rasquin 31 Jul 2018, 14:36:03

I recently upgraded from 7.6.8 to 7.10.2.

I have a document type with two Date fields (calendar icon that allows you to select a date as well as text area for manual entry).

I look in the database storing the data for each node of this document type that i've previously created and the fields that contain the dates are populated appropriately. However within the umbraco UI, when I visit these nodes their date field is empty, the calendar icon is not clickable, and even if I manualy enter a value in the text area, I am unable to publish because the field is mandatory and it claims that the value is null.

I am also seeing several javascript errors when I open a node with this document type in the UI.

I am experiencing the same problem as described here: https://our.umbraco.com/forum/using-umbraco-and-getting-started/93056-date-picker-not-working

Any progress on this? Chris, did you find a way to solve this issue? Thanks

In my case, this was caused by the "Analytics" plugin loading a second version of moment.js https://our.umbraco.com/projects/backoffice-extensions/analytics/

Removing the plugin fixed the issue. Maybe you also have a plugin loading moment.js?

Thank you Matt. That solved my problem as well. After uninstalling Umbraco Analytics everything works as expected. Thank you very much for sharing! Saved my day :)
