I’m working on my first site using Kirby 3 after doing some site in Kirby 2, but I have to say I run into a lot of problems. It’s also seems quite hard to find solutions, since a lot of things point to Kirby 2 and the docs are quite confusing to me.
Anyway, a new problem I’ve run into is this: I have a working version of a website with panel running locally. The moment I’m putting this on an online server plugins with custom panel fields won’t work anymore. I have two (Kirby Builder, and Markdown). Both give the same error:
The field type "field_name" does not exist.
I installed both of the plugins by copying them into the plugin folder, and locally they just work. No problems. I tried reinstalling them on the online server the same way, but the error remains.
I did see some mentions about
npm install and build in the plugins folder, but I have no idea how to get that working. I don’t have npm installed on the online server and I’m not really looking to install it just to run it in all plugins I use every time I update the site.
Any way to solve this?
