I keep getting the error “Failed to save, try clicking again” while trying to save my edited code on PCIbex. This is not a new issue, but I think recently it is occurring more frequently (earlier it used to be 3-5 trials before it succeeded but now it’s very often more than 10-15; sometimes I spend a minutes or two only trying to save the code). Am I doing something wrong and it’s just me? I have tried three browsers (Firefox, Chrome and Safari) on a Mac OS.
You’re not doing anything wrong, I experienced the same problem over the last few days. I am actively working on a new version of the PCIbex Farm that should fix this issue, and trying to find a temporary workaround in the meantime, which will likely involve rebooting the servers and, as a result, possibly interrupting ongoing data collection (which is why I keep delaying it taking action…).
I apologize for this. In the meantime, you can try editing your code locally using a text editor and uploading the file back to your project. If this still does not work for you, consider hosting your experiments on the original Ibex Farm (note though that the Ibex Farm is not on a secure domain, so you won’t be able to access microphones and webcams, and you cannot upload resources directly to chunk_includes there).
thanks a lot for the reply and suggesting alternatives. Editing a file locally and uploading generally works but for a .js file it’s more convenient to edit it in the browser because of the code completion/suggestion feature.
Possibly now there is more traffic to the server due to the crisis, which leads to the excess in this error?
