  • Resolved cdaluk


    When authoring a new post, clicking on the ‘Protect this page and its decendants’ check box in the ‘Restrict Access’ sidebar leads to a popup message saying ‘an error occured:’

    I’m using the latest version of Page Security on version 3.3.1 of wordpress.

    Old posts still have their page permissions set and still have access to the Restrict Access group select drop down lists, it appears this only affects new posts.


    Thanks for a great plugin.

  • I just installed the plugin in WordPress 3.3.1, activated the plugin and visited a page to mark as private. I clicked on the checkbox in the sidebar and the same error was raised.

    A dialog is presented saying an error occurred but no explanation text is presented.

    Looks like a good plugin. I hope this fixed quickly.

    *3 on this error

    For those with this error I have discovered a way around the problem.

    If you create your new post and click ‘Save draft’ you’ll then have access to click the ‘Protect this post and it’s decendants’ You should then get the ‘An error occurred:’ pop up. If you then dismiss the pop-up by clicking ‘OK’ and click ‘Save Draft’ again you should gain access to the list of groups and you can apply rules as normal by selecting relevant groups and publishing as normal.

    Hope this helps whilst the plugin is being fixed!

    Hey all,

    I’m going to try to iron this out with a few other bugs this weekend (no promises, things are still extraordinarily busy through the second week of February). It’s simply due a minor change in the way newer versions of jQuery work with the latest WordPress releases. The permissions will still be saved, but that first “protect” click doesn’t correctly recognize the success response that WordPress sends back.

    For anyone stumbling on this. The bug was fixed in 1.5.5.
