Perch blog - create post issue - "Sorry, that post could not be updated."

Hello, I just upgraded from 2.x (2.2.x?) to the latest 2,.5.4 along with latest blog, events and gallery app and now I'm getting 'Sorry, that post could not be updated.' when I try to add a post. This is at the staging post version. At the live version i can still add posts as normal.

If i use the live version to add the post, I then try to change it at the staging post, it behaves as though it has changed OK, success message etc but upon refresh it hasn't actually saved the changed.

Is there anything obvious that I should check or do?

Thanks.

Have you updated your blog templates as explained here?

http://docs.grabaperch.com/docs/blog/installation/

Thanks - I don't think it's that though.

First I copied my post.html template from my previous project form last week, no problems on that one.

I also have just temporarily deleted the post.html in ,my templates folder at the staging post to force it to revert to the system default and the problem persists.

Not at the staging post but locally also getting the following:

Can you turn debug on and let me know what it outputs when you get the error?

There seems to be an invalid query about 12 lines down...

It looks like the Blog update hasn't run. Did you get any errors when that happened?

I got something that appeared to be similar to one that I'd had before, granted 'drop' access to the user and it seemed OK.

What do you think the best way to run the install is? hould I uninstall /reinstall blog? Is there any risk to existing posts?

thanks

Sorry to repost, what do you think the best way to get my blog reworking is?

Thanks

Do you have access to make changes in the database?

yes i do...

In the perch2_settings table, there should be a row where the settingID column has the value perch_blog_update

Delete that row, and that will cause Blog to believe that the latest update hasn't run.

If you then view the main post listing in the Blog app, the update should re-run. If you keep debug turned on, you'll see some errors. Some of these are fine (trying to do things that have already been done) but keep a copy as some may not been good.

Hope it means more to you than me...

Ok - any difference?

Duh! Yes it seems fine now, many thanks.

I had assumed that because there were 'errors' in the code above that there was still a problem and hadn't retried it but all seems fine now.

Thanks again.

hey!

good thing: this helped me out with the same error, too.

thanks forum and drew ;-)
