Admin buttons do not work

Admin buttons do not work

I have just installed a fresh copy of Magento 2.0.4.  It is running on a Linux cPannel host.  For some reason I cannot click on any of the buttons in the Admin section other than Dashboard and user settings.


All of the hyperlinks are ending in /# and there is no response when they are clicked.


How do i go about fixing this issue?


Re: Admin buttons do not work

Hi @nUm81


Try to run following command on Magento root

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

It should solve the issue for you.

Re: Admin buttons do not work

OK, i have tried running the command, however it seems as though it is only deploying the "frontend" folder, and then only the "frontend/Magento/blank/en_AU/"


It is also creating a "_requirejs" folder with the same sub structure.


It doesn't not seem to be doing a full deploy.

Re: Admin buttons do not work

Ok, so I have managed to fully deploy both the en_AU and en_US by just repeating the static deploy command until it successfully completed.


However this has not fixed the links in the Admin dashboard.


All of the links however are still broken, for example the System link;


<a href="#" onClick="retrun false;" class>

How to fix the problem of loading css and javascript files? 

Re: Admin buttons do not work

I have given up on Magento, it shouldn't be that difficult to install and run a application.  I have switched to another ecommerce solution.

If you are unable to click buttons/links while using Firefox, please try Chrome.
