    CMS won't Save & Publish 2 pages - Firebug reveals 404 error Link to this post


    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.

    Below is the post output:

    restricted-messages[Form_...   Another page is using that URL. URL must be unique for each page

    Below is the Safari Console Output:

    Refused to set unsafe header "Connection"
    EditFormPOST http://www.mydomain.org/admin/EditForm 404 (Not Found)
    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.
