Config changes are not saving, even when I go thru the wizard.

Any ideas why the changes are not taking?

Well-settled

Well, I'm rather new here as well, and may not be able to contribute… But I have noticed that sometimes it's not sufficient to simply save a change and then click the site itself to check… I have to reload the site using the "reload button" on my firefox menu…

Be carefull about Caches:

- In Firefox (and also with IE that I do not usually use) you can delete cache after changes, or as it was said before, you can reload page until changes reveals…
- In Admin Zone, Setup, Configuration, you'll find a section about caches and author's advise to uncheck those caches while installing site. It will be much slower, but also much better if you have troubles with refresh.

If problem still remains, check CHMOD file permissions and configuration on server side.

Hope it helps. (sometimes i must make a few Ctrl+R to refresh changes) ;)

Okay, I've narrowed down my issue. It only doesn't save when configuring Site Options. I remember now seeing a message somewhere about too many fields on form? The Site Options screen does have the most fields (89).

Could this be the issue and can it be remedied?

I use Siteground as my hoster.

I am running into a very similar problem. On the same settings page most stuff works but if I try to change the server time it does not save. When I the change then click on the Save button I get the green response indicating that it was successful but if I go back in to check the setting it is back to what it was.

What happens if you wipe out the 'Welcome message' option so that there is no HTML in any of the fields?

mod_security may be blocking the whole form silently because it thinks you are a hacker trying to inject malicious HTML into the site.

(Suhosin and mod_security annoy me greatly…)

Hey Chris,

At the moment my welcome block is empty. This site was the first that I have used the newest version on and I was just starting to set the site up. I was trying to get the site time set right when I noticed it would not save it for me even though it indicated that it had.

So to confirm... if you look through the fields on that config screen, none contain any HTML tags?

Sorry for the delay,

The closest I see to any HTML is the copyright field that has "Copyright © (Clovis, NM Kiwanis) 2010"

Actually Rick, turns out that's a flat out bug - but unrelated to the other mod_security/suhosin issue.
