I am editing an already existing field in Craft. When I go to save, I get an error message that says "Couldn't Save Field", and the block type is highlighted in red. The field type is a Matrix that contains a rich text field, a Link It field, and an image field.

I am on Craft CMS 2.6.2949.

Any ideas on what could be causing this error?

Edit: Additional Info

Below is a screenshot of my Matrix field + child fields. I get the error only when I use one of our entry types as the Link Type.

    If you click the red block type, find the red field. There should be an error message there.

  • Thanks @LindseyD - when I click the red block type, there are no fields that are being highlighted in red. Further update: When I try to create a new Matrix field, I am able to save until I add a Link It field type to the Matrix. When I add a Link It field, it gives me the error again ("Couldn't Save Field"). Mar 21 '17 at 20:14
  • What is the handle for your Link It field? Certain handles (like "link" or "url") are restricted words and can't be used.

  • I've tried several things: "clientwebsite", "link", "test"... Mar 21 '17 at 20:19

    Possibly a Link It bug? There's a vaguely similar sounding issue already created here: github.com/fruitstudios/LinkIt/issues/35

It's entirely possible it's a Link It bug. There is a vaguely similar sounding issue already created here: https://github.com/fruitstudios/LinkIt/issues/35

  • Thank you! We've concluded that it is most likely a Link It bug, and we are transitioning out of using this field type as it is preventing us from making changes. Mar 22 '17 at 0:01
