WebDirect display problems

I have a FileMaker server 13.v10 database solution that got corrupted during development at some point, and now does not display several WebDirect objects properly.


For starters, the text shows up as white on a white background, which it did not do before.  We have been and are using the Cool Grey theme.


Other problems with display:


1.  3 value lists will not display:  One a regular list from a set of values, another list from a related layout, and a third a filtered list from another layout.  Another value list works normally

2.  A picture in a container field (locally stored, not external yet) does not show.

3.  A filtered, sorted portal does not show the records, nor are they accessible in the portal. The filtering and sorting are straightforward.


We have tried several things:


1.  Made a new layout, grouped everything together and paste it on the new layout.

2.  Made a new layout and made the fields and portal from scratch.

3.  Simplified and changed the relationships to the portal

4.  Substituted simplified relationships for the value lists (just for testing.

5.  Tried the db on FM Server 16 and made most of the changes above, no luck.

6.  Used Dropdowns, Popups, and radio buttons, no change in behavior


Everything works fine using FM client.  Only WebDirect has problems.


Some photos showing what the problem are attached.  Please forgive the look and feel; the photos show the layout as we made changes and are troubleshooting.


Has anyone seen this before?  Do you have any ideas how to fix it?


Thanks for your help.
