How To Manage a Series - Export Podcasts Webpart Fails

Feb 4, 2009 at 2:40 PM
I am on December release.  I am using the "How To Manage a Series" document to configure Series.  It requires that the Podcasts webpart from the pkshomepage.aspx page be exported.  When I attempt to export the webpart (or any webpart on that page), I receive a Windows Internet Explorer message "The page took too long to save."...  It does display in the status bar of I.E. 7 that it is "saving page content".  That disappears and then the message dialog box appears "The page took too long to save."...  It actually never prompts for where to save the exported webpart to.

Has anyone seen this before?

I found that it depends on how you enter the Edit Page mode that allows the export to take place.  If you click Site Actions - Edit Page and then attempt to export the webpart it will not work.  If you click Site Actions - Edit Page - Page - Discard Check Out - then on the Error Page - click Refresh Page - then from the Page Modification bar at the top of the page - click Edit Page.  Then export the webpart and it works.
