Troubleshooting: Page Remains in Draft Mode
While editing the page, the page remains in draft mode, due to a conflict in changes made by two users.
Another user made a change that conflicts with your changes.
- Back up the site and the database.
- Log into the site as a host/superuser.
- Publish the page through SQL.
- Go to .
- Run the following SQL script:
where @PageName is the name of the page you are editing; e.g., 'Home'.
DECLARE @PageName VARCHAR(250); SET @PageName = 'Home'; UPDATE TabVersions SET IsPublished = 1 WHERE TabID = ( SELECT TabID FROM Tabs WHERE TabName LIKE @PageName ) AND IsPublished = 0;
- Clear the server cache.
Recycle the application pool to allow the changes to take effect.
