Recently while building a sales page using Optimizepress 2.0, I was stunned to discover that after hours of work my content was not being saved.

Needless to say I was frustrated. I checked the support boards, I search YouTube, I sent emails to all of my friends who were using Optimizepress searching for an answer.

I finally received an answer from a friend who had gotten his answer from Optimizepress (OP) directly months before. Just so I’m clear, this is not an OP issue. I just happened to find it using OP. Which is an awesome product BTW.

In this video, I walk you through the following:

– Where to find your PHP.ini file
– What to do if you don’t have a PHP.ini file
– Exactly where to place the code in the PHP.ini file

To fix this, you will need to change the setting in the PHP.ini file for the max_input_vars variable which is usually set to around 1000.

We are going to change it to be 10000. This is the line of code you will add the PHP.ini file:

max_input_vars = 10000

Adding this line will ensure that ALL variables or content is saved to the database rather than only the 1000 variables from the previous setting.

      Hi…I've tried all of this and it's not working ­čÖü I have Bluehost too. I've been on the phone with them for 3 hours and we tried setting it to 9999, we tried 10000 we tried changing all the other settings OptimizePress recommended and nothing. OptimizePress will not save. Compability Check is solid. My max execution time is correct..Nothing is working…Any thoughts?

      Hi Ryan! Thanks very much for your help!
      I guess however this would only work if I have my own server right and not when you have a web hosting package?

      I just fixed this problem by adding max_input_vars=9999  to the php.ini file

      Hey Ryan! Great video, thank you! FYI, editing the file via FTP doesn't work. Your solution does!

      Do you know about the other OP suggestion, Your "max_execution_time" setting (30) is lower than recommended (60).?
