Error when saving page



After upgrading a customer site to R2 we started to recieve plain white pages in editmode with the message {"saved":false,"pageLink":278_661"} when hitting the save and publish button.

Any ideas?

Have you tried enabling logging to see if you can get more information about what happens? Do you have any custom event handling on the publish event?

I have enabled the logging now. I hope it can point me in the right direction.  You are right about the event handling. There is a validation event in the global.asax on the publish event.

Seems like this is related to the auto save functionality in R2 (ref twitter). I'll try to get more info on the subject.

I am getting the same error message.  I am not sure if it is an error message but when i create a page, it sometimes shows me this message.  {"Saved:false","pageLink":200_203"}, or whatever the pageid is.  If i refresh the page, alll the changes are there but i do get this quite often.

Could you try turning off the auto save functionality, setting the autoSaveInterval property to 0:0:0?

Hey Mari,

That seemed to do the trick.  I appreciate your help in this matter.

Turning one of the best new features off is a bad solution I'm sure you all agree... Is this a bug that has been filed? We have it too on one of our upgraded sites. It's got Relate+ so I'm sure it has a saved/published event even though I don't have the code infront of me now.

Yes, this has been verified as a bug with the auto save feature. It's is registered in our bug system as issue #70380.

I seem to have this same problem now, with the small difference that my customer is asked to download "EditPanel.aspx". When downloaded the file content is "{"saved":false,"pageLink":"162_1115"}" how ever, so I figure that their browser is set to download that page's mimetype, what ever that may be.

Is there any solution for this yet?

This bug has now been fixed. You can request a hotfix from our support department quoting bug number 70380.

In the meantime you can turn off auto save by setting the autoSaveInterval property to 0:0:0 in episerver.config
