If you cannot save your site due to a timeout error, please try the following:
While keeping your editor open, go to wix.com and log out of your account. Then log in again while keeping your editor open, and then try to save again.

If it still doesn't work, please wait a few minutes and try to save again.

In most cases this should resolve the issue.

Please post here if you still experience this issue after following the above instructions so that we can investigate the problem.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation,
*Update 2:
Our technical team is working hard to solve this issue, and we've made an attempt to fix this about 12 hours ago. If you are receiving this error, and your editor is open for more than 12 hours, I'm afraid you will have to close it, re-log to your Wix account, and try again.
If you are still receiving this error, even after loading the editor again, please provide us with the following information:
-When loading the editor, and simply pressing save (without any modification) does it save it?
-When making a slight modification to the website, and trying to save it, does it save it?
-Does it stop saving after a certain action you take, or after a time period?
Please make sure to answer all these questions when posting new replies here to make sure we can pinpoint and fix this issue as soon as possible.
* Update:

Hi guys,


We're terribly sorry for this issue and it is currently being investigated. If you've tried re-logging to your Wix account and the issue yet persists then I'm afraid that the current work will be lost. Please close your Editor and browser altogether and clear your browser's cache. You can find step by step instructions here. After doing so, please make a 'test save' - a slight change in your Editor (such as adding a paragraph) and attempt to save. Let us know if the error persists.


* To avoid future data loss we highly recommend that you save your Wix documents every few minutes while working on it.


Thanks for your understanding. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this issue,

    I have had the same issue others described without luck upon logging out, logging back in, and attempting to resave multiple times.
