We are aware of this error and we are currently working on a fix.

We will update on this thread.

Meanwhile you can use one of the following suggestions

1. Reload the editor - This error will continue to occur when you have the same editor session open. Reloading the editor will reset the session but you will  lose the changes and updates you made since the last save/publish. You will be able to  work in the editor and save/publish your site again once you have reloaded it.

2. Duplicate the pages - If you do not want to lose the changes you have made, you can duplicate the pages on your site and delete the old pages. You should be able to save/publish your site again. 


We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused you.

      Please try to duplicate all your pages and delete the old ones and then try to save. Update us if it doesn't work.

      In the future, please be sure to save your changes now and then, so your work wouldn't be lost.

    You folks have been experiencing this same "won't save changes" problem for MANY months and do not seem to know how to correct the problem. Very disturbing for someone testing out which website editing tool to use!  I think I'll keep looking at other options.

    Hi, I am having an error message that is a variation on the 10104. It occurs when I try to revert to an older saved version of my site.

    It reads:

      Neither "Reloading the editor" or "duplicating the pages" works to address my problem. You see last week I went in to change a small amount of text and suddenly my whole site (except the background and header) was erased. This was very shocking to me since I absolutely did not intend to erase anything. I tried to undo it but it wouldn't let me. I thought ok, well at least I can go back to an older version of the site. So I went into My Site History and tried to restore an older version (december 6, 2013). But I keep receiving the same error message no matter whether I try it on a mac (a laptop or a desktop) or a computer running windows. I have tried chrome, firefox, safari...I have also tried older dates of the site and none of them work. I have gone through the whole list of trouble shooting instructions and cleared cookies on all my browsers, I have no firewall software so I know it can't be that. Please any help would be much appreciated.

        I have tried on different internet connections in two different countries even and always get the same error message. Here is a screen shot of the error message I get whenever I try to revert back to the december 6, 2013 version of my site (screen shot wix.pdf). If you are able to revert it back for me from your side I would very much appreciate it. Otherwise I will have to rebuild my whole site!

      I reverted your site to its first working version(since the 10104 error was resolved, I hope that this version contains everything you are looking for. You can see the updated version in My Account. Unfortunately we are unable to revert your site to the versions in which this error occurred since these version are corrupt. 


      If you require any further assistance in the future please don't hesitate to contact us again.

      Thank you for trying to revert my site but this version does not include the majority of my site. I need it reverted to December 6th, 2013 or before because for some reason the main part of my site is not showing up. I am still missing 99% of the site I created. Please if it is possible revert to December 6th or before!

      Thank you

      Now that I am reading your last response again it sounds like you are saying that all my older versions of my site from December 6th and earlier are corrupt - because all of them are giving me the error message. Is that what you are saying?

    • Tom Wix Team

      Replied by Tom February 19, 2014

      I'm very sorry for the inconvenience caused to you by this issue, Unfortunately, since the older versions are corrupt, it is not possible to revert back to these versions.


      Please note that you can still view these versions from the site history section. If you have some text in these versions that you'd like to copy to your current Editor version then you can simply copy the text from the viewer and paste it into a text box in the current Editor.


      To access your site history:

      1. From My Account, next to your site, click Manage & Edit Site.

      2. From the right of the page that opens, under Site Actions, click My Site History.

      Your site history page opens.
