Xcode :

ok, lets go through step by step.

Have you installed the splashscreen plugin?
Have you edited your config.xml file?
Are you calling Splashscreen methods anywhere in your application?

I can’t say why it’s not working now, but usually it’s because you’ve changed a setting or aren’t calling splashscreen.hide()

Are you able to put your .run block onto a code pen or something so I can take a look, is it the default starter app?

I’m only using a .run block for translating ActionsSheets on my app… I guess you don’t need that ?

The problem I’m having is that I can’t see any of your code to provide a solution/answer to your problem.

Try running ionic state restore in your CLI so that you can reset your plugin settings and re-install.

You are injecting $cordovaInAppBrowserProvider into your Settings Controller but never using it and then accessing cordova.InAppBrowser.open directly?

You have:
<script> function openExternal(elem) { window.open(elem.href, "_system"); return false; // Prevent execution of the default onClick handler } </script>

In your index.html? What are you trying to do here? The code pen doesn’t even work so I can’t see what you are trying to do. My advice would be to setup a default application build and run it on emulator and see if it gets passed the splash screen.

Yes, I only have 2 links inside my settings.html where the inAppBrowser is loaded (settingsCtrl)

I’ve got the script in the index file here: http://www.iperform.nl/en/blog/post/cordova-open-external-link

to be honest I don’t know how to setup codepen to work like my app should work. I just put in there my code so you can see it.

If I’m doing a new blank project and emulate it, it works without any problems.

Delete your platforms folder and and ionic platform add ios again - if you have xcode open close it.

I’ve already tried that several times, with no luck.

is this normal looking?

Is there a easy way to start a new project and import all my stuff ?


seems like something was wrong with my config file… I just took 1 from the basic template and started it and it worked right off the bat…

thanks for you help ! @delta98
