Issue with publishing hyperlink

A strange error seems to be occurring that I have not seen before and I am not sure what the problem is. I'm trying to change a hyperlink using the WYSIWYG editor but when I click 'Submit' it brings me back to the top of the page with the 'Content' tab under EDIT highlighted red but with no explanation why.

The link holds in the WYSIWYG editor but does not stick when published. The page is checked to publish as well. Why is this happening?

    Hi Matthew,

    The behavior you are describing makes me think that there may be some hidden fields that are required on this particular Page. Can you or someone else from your organization attach the Data Definition XML that is in use on this Page (assuming there is one, it will be assigned to the Content Type)?

    Thanks Matthew. I copied your Data Definition into my local instance and received the same error initially. I noticed that the Slideshow -> Photo element has a required Photo field. The group is collapsed by default, so it's easy to miss the required field. Can you expand that field and verify that nothing has been selected for the required Photo field?

    That was the problem! You were right, it was very easy to miss. Thanks, I'll go ahead and make any adjustments.
