Like many others, I have encountered an issue with repeated “Uh Oh Failed to Save" notifications in Cornerstone.
Issue began 2/13/2021 while editing a post draft created the previous day. I opened the post in Cornerstone, added some simple text, and could not save. Theme update 8.0.11 and Cornerstone 5.0.11 did not resolve. All plugins up to date.
After much trial and error, I discovered that posts containing an icon shortcode [x_icon type=“tint”] within a classic text element will NOT save until the offending shortcode is removed completely OR removed from the upper portion of the text element. Placed at the end of the content in the same text element or in the middle of the content and the post saves. Place shortcode at the top of the content or in the top half and…“Uh Oh! Failed to save.” So where the shortcode is placed within the same text element seems to matter.
I tested other shortcodes like Callout and Blockquote with the same result.
My home page also fails to save. I am in the process of trying to discover the offending shortcode or other element causing the problem so that I can remove it until this is resolved.
Your assistance is much appreciated.
P.S. I have read numerous posts regarding this same issue and the steps recommended to resolve are above my pay grade and did NOT seem to resolve the issue for other users anyway.
BTW: A recent issue with accordion elements ignoring line breaks was NOT resolved with the recent update. I managed to repair hundreds of ignored line breaks throughout my site by individually adding an html line break for each instance. Would definitely like to see this resolved:
