_edit_lock – Warning: Admin currently editing this page – except I'm not

  • A user who was supposed to update a page emailed me (I am Admin) saying he didn’t because he saw I was editing it. The message in RED appeared saying “Warning: Admin is currently editing this page.” I was not logged in, and had not touched that page for two weeks. I have found on the forums on other posts about this problem, that there is a term:
    _edit_lock

    which contains the information about whether a page is in process or is finished (and therefore available for editing by a different editor). But when I search for and isolate this term in my database I get the list of all occurences which only contain a ten digit number as a value. I have no idea how to manipulate that value to unlock the page which I am not editing.

    How do I either FIX or DISABLE this function? It’s interfering with work that needs to be done and causing confusion.

    thanks
    JSC

  • Same problem. I haven’t used/edited the site, I’ve published a page, logged out, still shows me editing the page to other users. I’ve even changed the last edited version owner to another user and they continue to see this error.
