content editor webpart error "cannot retrieve properties at this time"
Hi,Everytime I try to editor content within the content editor web part I receive the error message "cannot retrieve properties at this time". I can edit the content within the web part when I use http. The error only seems to occur to when using https and SSL.I've looked at the following web site and KB articles to implement a workaround however still get the same error.http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/912060http://www.sharepointblogs.com/agoodwin/archive/2007/09/03/content-editor-webpart-error-quot-cannot-retrieve-properties-at-this-time-quot.aspx http://support.microsoft.com/kb/830342 Can anyone else suggest anything else?

hey guyswe found that the error was related to ISA, since our SharePoint implementation was behind it.It wasn't configured properly, and the javascripts were not being loaded properly. Not sure if this is a similar problem to you guysother behaviours we noticed was the drop down in the DataSheet view were not working either.

Neo, We are having the exact same problem. consistently. SSL thru ISA. (when we are going directly at the server and not thru ISA/SSL we dont have the problem.Same 2 issues, including the datasheet view.Can you ask your ISA team what the fix was. Thanks.

Another call for Neo - or anyone else with the answer - to post any further details that can be shared along those lines. I've got the same issue here...

> Can u plz chare the fix did by your ISA TEAM. These are English language forums. Please use full English language words in them and avoid things like "u" and "plz". (Spelling mistakes like "chare" are OK because we know English isn't the native language of people posting. But "You" and "Please" are common words everyone posting here should be able to manage.)

Notice this question was posted 2 years ago and has been dragging on since then. I found that recycling the application pool fixed it only sometimes and iisreset only fixed it sometimes. When neither worked rebooting the machine also changed this behaviour. It turns out that the problem is not actually Sharepoint at all. It's Internet Explorers javascript handling and if you use Firefox the problem goes away. Firefox is riddled with it's own problems and does a bad job of displaying Sharepoint sites in general so it's not a solution but it's an effective workaround for modifying CEWP It's fixed in IE8 Tools-->Compatibility-view-settings Try it from IE8 in this mode and the error disappears.

We resolved this issue completly by opening the case with microsoft. We found the reason for this CEWP error as due to out of memory exception by using fiddler2 & our sharepoint farm was in 32 bit ,windows 2003 4gbRam. I observerd the worker process memory usage for that application crossing the 1Gb. So i change the no of worker process for that application pool from 1 to 4 & it saved us from webapplication getting saturated. But microsoft doesnt support changes in worker process number & they suggested to increase the RAM memory. So our organization planed migrating our windows 2003 servers,4 Gb ram webfront server to windows 2008 with almost 20 gb of Ram on them. Now i dont see a CEWP cannot save properties at this time & canot save properties at this time error any more. Before this changes, I use to manage the CEWP error by doing a recyle to application pool.
