    Check logs on var/logs for any exceptions or more info related to this issue – Konrad Siamro Mar 30 '17 at 7:37
  • Nothing in it related to cms page – Rajan Soni Mar 30 '17 at 11:38
  • Can you check console logs? – Konrad Siamro Mar 30 '17 at 11:39

Yes I got the solution for that:

I have installed MageWorx SeoBase extension that extension adds two fields in the cms_page table: 1. meta_robots and 2. mageworx_hreflang_identifier

but that field does not show on the content > page and both fields are set as nullable = false;

that's why the page was not saving I just go the database, open the cms_page table and just select true in a null field and now its working.


The best idea to get the solution is try and catch which was introduced in PHP 5 then you only need to check exception message.

  //Your code logic
catch (\Exception $e) {
  //First find the message and then echo $e message.
  echo $e->getMessage(); die('errorMessage'); 
  $this->messageManager->addException($e, __('Something went wrong while saving the page.'));
