Hi Everyone,

I've been using Anki for a while with the Fluent Forever radical deck (along with my own japanese deck) and everything was working perfectly. However, a few days ago I started receiving the following error messsage: "Back template has a problem: Found '⁨{{Optional: Stroke Order Diagram}}⁩', but there is no field called '⁨ Stroke Order Diagram⁩'". The deck still works on Ankidroid and the strange thing is that it also worked fine on my Manjaro PC. I didn't change anything and it just stopped working. Another issue is that the due date of every card in my other decks were moved into the future as shown on the attached image. I'm using the Kanji Colorizer (stroke order diagrams) and the card seems to have a problem with that. Not sure if anybody else encountered anything similar.

    1. Update to the latest Anki version from https://apps.ankiweb.net/ and then use Tools > Check Database
    2. Start reviewing cards and when a blank card show up hit the Edit button and then to the Cards... button and hit Ok when asked to update the collection.
    3. Now close the Cards window and the Edit window and your cards should start working normally.

    @addons_zz This actually solved the card issue, thank you very much! :) Not sure what happened to the due date so I just set everything to "new"

    my phone version of anki is updated, to the current version
    It's only occurring on my iphone and I can see the cards on my desktop version (I am running anki on windows 10 with a windows 8 compatibility) I went through the steps as mentioned and have not seen a change in the problem

    This comment was split into a new discussion: Problem with ':' in field name

    When I try to do the process of "Start reviewing cards and when a blank card show up hit the Edit button and then to the Cards... button and hit Ok when asked to update the collection.
    Now close the Cards window and the Edit window and your cards should start working normally." it's not even an option on my phone
    I did that on my computer (where it wasn't appearing as a problem) and re-synced everything and the problem still persists on my phone
