[resolved] [closed] Error Message: Connection lost. Saving has been disabled until reconnected (18 posts)

    I just installed 3.6

    When trying to edit a page I get this message at the top of the editor: "Connection lost. Saving has been disabled until you’re reconnected. We’re backing up this post in your browser, just in case."

    It doesn't seem to effect saving or modifying so it is only a nuisance. Any ideas on how to get rid of it would be appreciated.

    I too am getting this constantly on thisisxbox when trying to create a new post. It is also bringing up a 404 error page inbetween the title section (back end) and the content editor.

    I really want to turn this feature off, 3.5 ran perfectly, but whatever 3.6 is doing to constantly monitor changes every second I type is not needed or necessary for me. It has made using it a nightmare when the connection lost message appears every single time you create a new post, and every single time you press publish.

    It has made publishing posts take 3x longer just in a waiting period.

    @esmi

    I tried changing to 160 seconds and 30 seconds. Still have the error message.

    Any other suggestions?

    What if you increase it to something silly - like 300 seconds?

    I have found that the error was showing even though it was meant to be hidden by css because a plugin css declaration was overwriting the WP default for .hidden class. The plugin causing it for me is ZoomFolio portfolio plugin.

    Make sure you check all of your plugins for conflicts.

    Same problem here with Godaddy as the host. I get a 404 on /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php

    @HallMarc,

    You were correct, it is one of my plugins. I'm using a hotel theme published by Templatic which comes with several plugins that add functionality to my site including monetization and it keeps track of all transactions. Can't not use it so I'll see what Templatic can do.

    Thanks to everyone who made suggestions.

    Hello all,
    and specially @Roostertail. Would you mind writing down few more details about how did you solve the issue?

    I'm having a similar problem. Perhaps it is related to WooTable (module of a theme by WooThemes).

    Thanks, kindly,
    Carlo

    @HallMarc,

    Is .hidden not available for use in a theme, because WordPress uses it somewhere?

    Yep, a plugin mustve overwritten something it shouldnt have. Just happened to me using a popup plugin. Just reinstall wordpress (in updates), fixed it for me.

    Connection lost. Saving has been disabled until you’re reconnected. We’re backing up this post in your browser, just in case.

    I am also getting same connection lost message. Let me know if anyone found way to fix it.

    I can do all the "Save Draft" I want and it works just fine. But every single time I save I get this error now and Chrome just hangs in an infinte load. When you open a new tab and go back to the site, the piece has posted just fine.

    This is clearly not solved for the many of us who continue to get this error multiple times a day and are frozen out of our site for hours a week... I find multiple threads about this same issue and all say "closed" when the commenters are clearly saying it is NOT solved and I can vouch it has continued for me for over two months now no matter what browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer).

    We have disabled plug-ins and done everything commented on here and the problem continues with the same continuous message: "Connection lost. Saving has been disabled until you’re reconnected. We’re backing up this post in your browser, just in case." Then it often "saves" but takes out all formatting and changes text to one continuous sentence, requiring even more time (beyond all time lost frozen out of WordPress each day with this error message) to redo/fix all the formatting in a post.

    You can tell us to open as many threads as you like and claim the problem is fixed but the fact that each user is saying it is NOT resolved and that this continues to be a widespread problem is beyond obvious. Why don't you let us know when it is ACTUALLY fixed system-wide or provide step-by-step directions to fix it beyond the useless steps that users are struggling to figure out for themselves?

    @theperfectspot - please post a new thread so someone can help you with YOUR site which is not like anyone elses's. That's why the forum guidelines say

    Posting your own topic is smiled upon. Unless you are using the same version of WordPress on the same physical server hosted by the same hosts with the same plugins, theme & configurations as the original poster, do not post in someone else's thread. Start your own topic.

    There is no "system-wide" fix because your site is not like anyone else's, and something like this can be caused by any number of things.
