My site was working just fine, when all of a sudden editing certain pages lead to the error below. Now it seems as if i'm also not able to create entries in that channel anymore. After hitting submit i keep getting these errors.

Help is geatly appreciated, since this is a live site...

i am running EE 2.8.1

A Database Error Occurred Error Number: 1064

  • What version of Wygwam are you running? Also, what version of PHP and MySQL are you running? It might help us uncover the problem.

  • i'm running 3.3.3 as of an hour ago. However, i'm not sure wygwam is at fault here. I see there's an entry title in what i suppose should be and array of id's. I deleted that entry in EE, and can't find it in the database anymore. however, the error still shows Feb 5, 2015 at 14:20

enter image description here"Transfer Needs for Europe's Biggest Sides in Summer" isn't an entry_id and should not be in the where in clause.

Wygwam is pulling those entry ids from EE's page ids.

Check the page module and any config overrides.

  • page module isn't installed, structure is used. I don't see anything in the config that could have anything to do with this error. (might be i don't know what to look for) When i change the fieldtype to vanilla txtare the error goes away, when i change it back to wygwam the error is back. Which is to be expected. I think i know how the titel (Transfer Needs etc) got into the id field. I deleted the entry. cleared caches etc. wygwam still throws the error even though the string is not in the DB anymore Feb 5, 2015 at 19:49
