Occasionally, you might stumble upon a strange error, that happens both on production servers and dev server (ie with the php dev server). You might try to edit (enable/disable/reorder) a menu item in a Drupal menu, but this won't be saved.

This could happen on really big menus, with a lot of items in them. PHP is blocking this change, as a security measure!

Vardaxoglou.gr is my latest creation and it is a fully responsive photographic website. Check it out if you are into dark designs! I hope to have a case study soon.
