Exception when copying/pasting part of the page tree



When we copy a small portion of the page tree and then try to paste the copied part below another page, we get an exception:

Ok, so it seems there's a validation error related to the content with the complex reference "36661_143996". However, I can't seem to find any content with that reference.

Any ideas?

Remove old versions of page with id 36661 and try again?

Set default value of that property to pagename in code?

(just shooting from hip here mind you...) :)

Or if it does not work, hook into the content publishing/published event and see what is wrong. You can set the properties values (as a temp measure) there...

I am facing same issue I get error 'Failed to copy page 'testevent' to '2016'.:Exception: Property 'Start Date' is required.'. Please let me know if you find any fix.
