    I get "Error: Update Timeout" when I try to update my pages order.
    I'm using WP 2.6.5, pageMash 1.1.6 and PHP4.

    php4 is likely the problem - can you upgrade to php 5.x.x?

    try completely removing pageMash and adding it again. I changed the savelist.php file to lowercase, but some methods of updating will not recognise the change in case in the filename.

    Awesome plugin, but I'm having same problem. It was working for a while, and then, over the weekend decided to stop. I've downloaded the newest version, done a clean install and cleared my cache, but still get the timeout error.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks for the feedback, I'm really not sure what could be causing this.
    The timeout error just means that pageMash has sent a AJAJ request and not recieved any response.
    If you set the $ShowDegubInfo variable at the top of pagemash.php to true it should show the request data when you press update in pageMash. This is the easiest thing to check and should just be a JSON representation of your pages structure. Otherwise if you can get the firebug addon for firefox, pageMash is set to report a lot of additional information to this console that may help identify the problem.

    firebug console shows:

    POST http://my-site.com/wp-content/plugins/postmash/savelist.php 500 internal server error

    also shows:

    Error: update confirmation not recieved

    i realized that my site is actually symbolically linked to public_html and wondering if that's causing some confusion with the ajax call?

    console response tab shows:

      <title>500 Internal Server Error</title>
      <h1>Internal Server Error</h1>
      <p>Directory "/home/rlafree/dev/v1/wp-content" is writeable by group</p>
      <hr/>  <address>suPHP 0.6.3</address>

    any ideas? thanks.

    that info narrows down the problem, sounds like it may be something to do with your permissions. Try checking your file permissions particularly of the savelist.php file with chmod.
    It shouldn't matter that it's symbolically linked, but it's possible that it's causing a problem with your suPHP install.. might be worthwhile updating suPHP.

    I try to hide pages using pagemash and it will continually show them - not all of them but about 8-10 pages - not sure why

    I get the same error here, but the firebug console says:

    /wp-content/plugins/pagemash/savelist.php 404 Not Found

    I checked the file system and the savelist.php file is there

    Okay, I found a solution. In my case it was due to the permissions of the wp-content folder. I set it to 777 and that was causing the error. When I set the permissions to 755 the error went away.

    I hope this helps.

    my problem was that i installed pagemash as root by mistake, and Apache run WP as another user. chown to the other user for pagemash and fixed.

    Yeah I had this issue also .. Hours later -- I set the plugins directory to 755 it was on 777 and that fixed it
