I think this is an old dataset it works fine with new ones. I think this is a corrupt data issue.

also HTML, is fine as a format

please reopen if you can reproduce with a dataset that has been created since the update today

I did this with a dataset I just created, 5 mins before creating this ticket Tried it again with a new datasrt, happened again. It's when you're editing a resource

can you try to work out exactly how to cause this problem starting with add a dataset and let me know how you break things

tell me all the fields you filled in - also try to get it to happen using as little effort as possible eg add dataset http://s031.okserver.org:2375/dataset/new

title = mooooo

click next:add data

resource = moo format = csv

click save & add another

click on resource just created in sidebar to edit

change format to HTML,

click Save & add another


that all works fine for me what am i doing wrong? thanks

also please try using a non sysadmin account

Wierd. It always breaks for me. Maybe we go through this on skype. I just did it with a non-admin account.


  1. Create new dataset. Name whatever, resource it a link (I use http://trac.ckan.org/ticket/2734) e.g. http://s031.okserver.org:2375/dataset/format-error-test
  2. Once you've *finished* the dataset creation process you are on the main dataset page. Click on the resource you added.
  3. Click on "edit"
  4. Change resource field to "html," for example and click on "update resource"
  5. Error shows, clicking on "update resource" doesn't do anything.

How about I do it and you watch via screen share?
