I cannot edit my attributes after upgrading to Magento 1.1.8 (from 1.1.6) which seems to do nothing when an attribute (or attribute set) is clicked in the admin panel.

If I try to create a NEW attribute, I get this error:

Output format is not specifiedPleasespecify "format" key in constructor, or set it using setFormat().

I also tried fix the issue using the Head.php patch but that rendered my admin panel useless.

Nope, that didn’t do much for me either. Everything worked in 1.1.6 - I’m considering going BACK to that.

Full update to 1.1.8
