Changing feature slider options in pagelines causes 404 error

Question

Posted · Report post

Hello, Upon upgrading to 2.0 my features slider reverted to the default sample slides (expected). Unfortunately after I try and update the settings in the features section of Pagelines - Special it turns all my admin pages into error 404 pages. The only solution I have found so far is to restore my last back-up and clear my browser cache. I have been able to replicate the problem several times, it doesn't seem to matter which options I change and save on the Pagelines Special page it will return this behavior. Any ideas? or anyone else experiencing this?

A few people experienced this, as yet we are unable to replicate it. What browser are you using?

I'm using firefox and chrome. Interestingly, what repairs the problem is to change file permissions of all wordpress folders and sub-folders to 755 via FTP. however, if i try to edit the feature slider again, it will give the 404 error again (until i change file-permissions).

i don't know. i just read somewhere on the web that when you can't access your backend (due to a 404 error), you can try to change the permissions of wp-admin, wp-content and wp-includes and all subfolders to 755. i did that and it gives me access to the backend again. however, everytime i try to change settings for the feature slider, the error comes back and all i can do is set the permissions again. the settings that i make for the feature slider are never saved though.

just sent you a message. i just realized that it is actually sufficient to just clear the browser cache. i'm able to login to the dashboard, but everytime i try to change the feature settings, i get the 404 error until i clear the cache. this is for IE, chrome and FF. i cannot make any changes in the feature settings, however the box settings work fine.

Whatever 'manageWP' is, de-activate it and the problem goes away.

Thanks for your help! ManageWp is a tool that facilitates managing multiple WP blogs. I have deactivated the plugin, but the problem remains. I was able to make adjustments to the feature settings by deactivating the features in the templates sections BUT the settings are ignored by the feature slider (e.g. i set the slider to "no navigation" but the navigation remains").

This happens for some reason in Firefox for me on certain installs but no other browser. Does it happen in Chrome and Safari as well for you?

yes, it happens in all browsers and only with this one install. i'm using a hostnine reseller account. wordpress is up to date (3.3.1) and there is no difference to any other install that i have. here are the plugins that i have installed and activated (deactivating them has not helped): - akismet - limit login attempts - managewp - post types order - wp google fonts

I was able to save feature options no problems with that plugin deactivated.

Yes they are, I changed settings in the post area, and the special settings area with that plugin dosabled, I also tested with all plugins disabled, same result. Only when it was enabled I got the 404.
