Hi,

I have a strange error occurring with the CMS - on our production server, 2 of 5 pages of the site won't save. When 'Save & Publish' is clicked, the progress animation keeps spinning and the status message 'Saving' is displayed. Nothing is saved though.

Opening Firebug reveals that there is a 404 error.

POST http://www.mydomain.org/admin/EditForm   404 Not Found  1.45s

Below is the post output:

Below is the Safari Console Output:

leftandmain.js:368TypeError: 'undefined' is not a function (evaluating '$('statusMessage').showMessage(msg,'bad')')

Any ideas how to fix this problem? We have no problems at all on the development server.

Thanks very much.

Very very bizarre... Can anyone enlighten me!

After a resorting to a binary search process of elimination, I narrowed it down to the strangest thing...

It appears that any time the word "system" appears as the last or only word in a Title or Alt attribute in the content, this bizarre problem occurs.

When I even remove a character from the word "system" (eg. "syste"), the problem goes away.

Note that this only happens on the production server. So I wonder whether there is some security measure sanitising AJAX posts or DB inserts, picking up the keyword "system" as the last word in a Title/Alt field...

Any ideas why this could be happening? Thanks.
