    Can't save pages/changes in CMS Link to this post

    Hello, having installed Silverstripe yesterday the installation seemed to work ok (except for perhaps not showing the final page where I could delete the install.php file). However now when I try to make the simplest modifications to the Home page and save it, it won't save. No matter whether I select the "Save Draft" or "Save & Publish" buttons they have a circular arrow that just keeps spinning around indefinitely. If I try to move to another page I get a message saying the page hasn't been saved. If I select OK the changes aren't saved so I'm stuck with the basic Silverstripe CMS pages that can't be edited.

    Can someone please explain why the CMS won't save any changes?

    Regards Don

    I second this, I have found there a numerous files in this build with extension names shortened which cant be found by the system ie; there are .png files required by the css which have only got .pn and JS file links which only have .j

    I amended a few but still getting the js error " has no method 'getPageUrl' " in the leftandmain.js file.

    Hope this helps someone resolve the issue as I cant wait to get started on it

    Thanks saulegoode.

    I had previously changed approximately 10 php files that didn't have the "p" on the end, which got me through the installation process. And now having changed approximately 30 files that had the extension ".j" rather than ".js" and about 20 ".png" files that were missing the "g" it appears that the problem is corrected as I can save files.

    Much appreciated saulegoode.

    Regards Don

    Hello

    Having had these issues some weeks ago, I again incurred them when I tried to install SilverStripe Version 3.0.1 on my website. My webhost (GoDaddy) had version 3.0.1 to download and install but again with the files with incomplete extensions. The work around I found was to rename all files locally that (i believe) had the wrong extension and upload them to my site. This seems to have worked so I'm passing on the list of files so that it hopefully helps someone else and the development team. Please see attached a list of files in which I changed the extension.

    Regards DonM
