Page Option Setup goes to 404 error page on pressing "save options"

Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

I found a problem when trying to update a new site's page options section.

After putting some content into the content box area, i clicked  "save options" and it went to the 404 page and said "Nothing found for WP-admin options php.

 

This first happened a few days ago, but i thought it might be an issue that would pass but it did not.

 

Anyone know what the problem could be?

 

thanks.

Quick update:

I have another site on the same server, but it does not have the same problem.

It is running a previous version of pagelines and the problem site is running 2.4.4

 

I have sent a ticket to the server guys to ask about the "Mod-security" status of the site / server and am awaiting feedback on that.

I have also disabled all the plugins, but the same thing happens.

 

In the meantime, is it possible to roll back to a prev version of pagelines?

 

Clutching at straws i know..

Hi, any advice on whether or not i can roll back to Version: 2.3.3 in the meantime while i wait to hear from my server admins?

 

Please advise if this is an option and how to do it?

The other site that is working fine on the same server is running  verion 2.3.3 with the base theme as the current theme.

The only difference between these two sites is the pagelines framework. 2.3.3 vs 2.4.4.

 

thanks in advance.

There is no version to roll back to, the settings page will be exactly the same.

Do you have a lot of Pagelines sections activated? Try deactivating some to see if the page options then save, I found a post which says that having too many sections active can sometimes cause this.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Morning James, thanks for the tip - i will try that.

Excuse me for being a little stupid here, but how do i deactivate them?

 

Do i remove them from the templates in the drag & drop admin section?

 

thanks.

You go to Dashboard > Store > Sections > Your Added Sections and select the sections you're not using or likely to use, and click the Deactivate button for each you do not use.

Wow, that seemed to have worked, thanks Rob for the suggestion.

 

Is this a bug or is the idea to not use a lot of sections?

 

Thank you.

Its not a bug.

 

The number of sections your site can handle depends particularly on the resources of your server.  If your server can handle extensive simultaneous traffic and has plenty of resources, such as a dedicated server, you'll probably have no issues.  However, with a limited hosting plan, even a VPS plan (Virtual Private Server), then you may run out of resources with even moderate traffic.

 

Each section adds processes to the server load, each time someone visits the site, even if the section isn't used on the template.  As such, it causes the site to slow by a small fraction.  Add them all up and then compound it with some considerable traffic (each visitor using those resources), and you end up with problems.  Hence, removing some unused sections reduces the load.
