Fix Inability to Save Publishing Page Properties SharePoint 2010 in a 2013 Environment

by on June 24, 2013


The Error: Unable to save page property edits

When trying to save a page property edits in IE 9 or IE 10, you get an error – on searching the SP error logs you find something like the following:

Unexpected    System.InvalidOperationException: Namespace prefix ‘xsd’ is not defined.    at System.Xml.Serialization.XmlSerializationReader.ToXmlQualifiedName(String value, Boolean decodeName)     at Microsoft.Xml.Serialization.GeneratedAssembly.XmlSerializationReaderDictionaryEntryArray.Read1_Object(Boolean isNullable, Boolean checkType)     at Microsoft.Xml.Serialization.GeneratedAssembly.XmlSerializationReaderDictionaryEntryArray.Read2_DictionaryEntry(Boolean checkType)

The Solution

Hit F12 and set both browser and document mode to IE8 (SharePoint 2010 only functions properly in IE 8)
