Hi – hopefully someone can help here.
It’s really quite odd but I’ll try to explain. I have a fairly simple site running locally in mamp. Everything is fine except when I change the URL setting of one particular page – a top level page with url and title of ‘locations’. At the point of entering the new url the panel basically hangs with the url dialog still showing, the browser still pointing to the old url, and the top right hexagon icon spinning.
If I click cancel in the url dialog I can navigate back to the panel’s site page but if I try to return to the ‘locations’ page it won’t load – the page gets as far as the top black bar but only the site in the breadcrumb trail and then below that only the ‘settings’ cog and label – nothing else – no title field, no blueprint fields, nothing. And clicking ‘settings’ does nothing. And the top right hexagon icon still spinning
The only way to recover the site is to restart mamp at which point the page is accessible in the panel and the newly entered url is reflected in the browser url and the panel’s breadcrumb trail. However the top right hexagon remains spinning and never resolves to a search icon – no matter what page I navigate to.
No other page has this behaviour. I can change their urls with no issue.
I suspected routing but there is none in this site.
I suspected plugins (like maybe bouncer which I’m using here) but removing the plugins folder (and also any accounts with bouncer fields) made no difference.
I briefly thought maybe the blueprint name is reserved or something but changing it and then retrying all of the above gets the same result.
And then I ran out of ideas.
Anyone got a clue here? I stumbled on this issue as a client was asking if they could edit urls etc and I was about to say ‘no problem’ except now that’s not true.
