(Site is running most recent version of WordPress on DreamHost.)
This all seems to have started when I tried to get our WordPress site over to SSL. I had a certificate but going to https://example.com would throw a bunch of errors about requesting assets over http (of course). I ended up installing the Really Simple SSL plugin to smooth this out and everything seemed fine.
I had previously installed Search & Replace to try to manually resolve the http/https hard-coded values but didn't end up going through with it. Noting it just in case even just doing the "dry run" they offer might have messed something up.
I tried to make a change to a page and it wouldn't go through. This is only happening on specific pages, and not on posts. Funnily enough, I can see via phpmyadmin that the
post_modified is updated, but not
Attempts to Fix:
I have cleared oodles of caches (including W3 Total Cache, my own browser, and CloudFlare). I reverted the plugins folder to what it was a few days ago (before the SSL fiddling). I uninstalled all plugins and reverted to a default theme and tried to update the page in question -- problem persisted even then.
So basically I am at a loss. I don't want to have to restore the database if there is some configuration gotcha that I am missing.
Thanks for any help, and if I can provide any more information please let me know.
