    Hi there,

    I made a page with sections. And now, if I want to make changes, these aren’t saved anymore. I’ve tried making a new page, but problem remains: I can save only once and that’s it. Further changes aren’t saved anymore.
    How can I resolve this?

    What happens when you click the Update button? Nothing at all?

    Try #1 on this page to see if there’s a plugin breaking page updates: https://generatepress.com/knowledgebase/debugging/

    Carin Hobbelman

    Nothing changes when clicking the update button. Running GP Premium 1.2.81
    Deactivating all the plugins didn’t resolve the problem unfortunately…:-(
    Any other suggestions? I really like using Sections to build my pages, if working properly off course…:-)

    Hmm, do you have another site you can test on?

    Something is going on with that server I’m assuming, as no one else has reported any issues with this, and I’ve been updating this site which uses Sections on most pages.

    Carin Hobbelman

    No, just a poor girl with one site, one hosting, only πŸ˜‰

    I just updated the Premium plugin manually. Didn’t solve the problem either.

    Do I need to contact my hosting provider about this (and “ask them to allow your WordPress installation to communicate with https://generatepress.com using the wp_remote_post function. They may have to turn PHP cURL on”)? or is it another issue (And what exactly do I say to them then ;-)? Hosting troubleshooting….it’s ‘abacadabra’ to me…#clueless

    Tnx for the support! Appreciated!

    Any chance you can send me temporary admin login details to support@generatepress.com? That way I’ll be able to look into it a little further πŸ™‚


    Permission granted ;-).Sent you an email.
    How’s your Dutch? πŸ˜‰

    I just started having this same problem. I’ve been working on the site all night – and now the sections wont save. Even on a newly created page when saving for the first time. Pages can be created, updated, and saved without using sections – but sections seems to disable all saving!!

    Were any solutions found?

    Carin’s issue was an emoticon in one of the Sections.

    Do you have any emoticons in your sections?

    Rylan Urban

    Holy crap – YES I DO!!! And yes, removing it solved the problem! Why did that happen!??

    What smiley are you using? I can’t seem to reproduce.

    Hi Tom, I’m a webdesigner from Germany.
    I’m using your theme GeneratePress on many websites for several years without any problems.
    Now there is only on one website https://soziales-zentrum-suhl.de an unsolvable problem: it isn’t possible to save sites with sections in it (the saving process hangs endlessly). Pages / posts without sections can be saved easily. I’ve already tried a few things to find the error: all plugins deactivated except gp-premium, disable emojis (I had read that emojis can cause the error, but I don’t use emojis) – it doesn’t work.
    I hope, you can help me solve the problem.
    Thanks, Andreas
