I'm having issues with the Structure module. When I reorder pages from backend, it gives me error in console.

{"success":false,"errors":"Reordering Failed\n\nYour Structure Tree appears to be out of date.\n\nSomeone else may be editing or you may have another tab with a newer Structure tree.\n\nPlease refresh and try reordering again."}

Here is the screenshots:

  1. Normal pages at structure backend:

Please help me out with this. My EE version is 3.5.6 and Structure version is 4.1.12

"Updated" column shouldn't be NULL or empty or 0. It must contain a date to start reordering. Sometimes it not set at default install of structure and that cause this error.

Update the first row's "updated" column in DB with date will solve the issue.

Updated column in exp_structure table should not be NULL.

Use this SQL script to fix reordering issue:

UPDATE exp_structure SET updated = CURRENT_TIMESTAMP WHERE entry_id = 0;
