Error creating page that already exists

Hello,

Whenever I try to create a page in the admin area that I have already added to the project in code, I am getting the error "Sorry, that page could not be created."

  1. The page I created is the archive.php example from here: https://github.com/PerchCMS/PerchExample-rachelandrew_me/blob/master/blog/archive.php and I put it inside my /blog folder.

  2. Then in the admin area I go to add page and use the following:

- Page title: Archive - Navigation text: Archive - File name: /blog/archive.php - Parent page: Top level - Master page: Page already exists, or is a link only

Then on Submit I get the error mentioned above.

My DEBUG output

Does it still happen with the current version?

Hi Drew,

Yes, I updated to 2.8.11 and get the exact same behaviour.

I'm not sure why that's happening for you and no one else, but I'll put some extra checks into the code to help prevent it for the next version.

Thanks Drew but I'm not the only one to have this problem. There is at least one more case :) Maybe you'll want to compare my logs with this one: http://forum.grabaperch.com/forum/02-03-2015-cannot-create-page-where-page-already-existsis-link-only?page=1#reply-22516

It's likely whatever configuration option is causing the problem causes it for you both. But not for many thousands of others. I'll still add the extra checks to try and prevent it, whether it's for one user or two.
