Trouble with autosave and publishing after upgrade



I'm having some trouble with a site after upgrading it to Episerver 7.0.586.1.

To make sure the error is not in code, I created a new pagetype in admin mode with just 1 textfield.

Everything looks fine and I can edit pages in admin mode, the problem occurs after editing. The autosave-message says "Frakoblet, kan ikke lagre" (or "disconnected, can not save" in english). In the javascript console, an error is showing up:

[HttpException (0x80004005): Version is not writeable]
EPiServer.Cms.Shell.UI.Rest.ContentChangeManager.UpdateContentProperties(ContentReference contentReference, IDictionary`2 properties, SaveAction saveAction) +1131

In addition to this, when i try publishing, an error pops up saying:

"The provided content link does not have a value. Parameter name: contentLink"

Thanks in advance,

If you have not already done so, I would suggest either upgrading to the latest version (EPiServer 7.5) or at least to apply the latest core update ( and the 7.1 UI update to see if this issues are resolved in those.

Thank you Linus for a quick response. I tried to apply the patch from the addon-section. I am having a few problems with missing text on buttons and different urls for editmode. Where does the patch install on my system when I use the addon store?

I have narrowed the problem some:

When i edit a property, the auto-save works fine. The problem occurs when i publish. The message "The provided content link does not have a value. Parameter name: contentLink" appears, and the auto-save stops working.

I solved it. Another project(plugin) had a pagereference setting "start page" that was not set after the upgrade process. Thank you anyway Linus :)

Great that you solved it yourself Hans Borge. And I hope that you have a chance to upgrade to the latest version in a not too distant future :).
