[pmwiki-users] Invalid Page name when editing Site.SideBar

I added a debug line suggested by another user to show some page
variables. That might help someone who knows the guts. I can add another
line if that would help. (I don't write PHP, but can recognize a bit
from other languages.)
New group sidebar page is now:
(the problem applies to both sandy.onebit.ca and cricket.onebit.ca --
it's a farm.)
The custom edit form was disabled three seconds ago and the problem is
I was able to create the new group sidebar and save it, so editing
works. The Preview doesn't.
Another installation with the same hosting company, but probably a
different server, isn't affected. It previews changes fine.
I can understand some of CPanel. Is there anything I should look at?
And now for the dreaded recipe check stage. I don't remember adding any
recipes since the last successful edit, however:
Recipe local pmwiki.org
Cookbook:Captcha 2008-07-13 2008-07-13
Cookbook:CommentBoxPlus 2006-12-15 sandy 2011-12-03

PmWiki:SiteAnalyzer 2007-02-16 2007-02-16
PmWiki:Upgrades pmwiki-2.2.42 pmwiki-2.2.44
That list doesn't have several that are in my cookbook folder.
Now to search the php files. I'll search for the word "post" in each
file and report anything suspicious.
cricket/cookbook : empty folder
cricket/local/config.php : only "post" is with MailPosts .
pmwiki/local/config.php: very short file
pmwiki/local/farmconfig.php: nothing suspicious -- all to do with
mailing or posts
pmwiki/pub/guiedit: a .js file
pmwiki/local/cookbook: -- full folder!
autorestore.php -- "restore" isn't in farmconfig.php.
tabtable.php -- 2007/08/15 -- commented out the activation in
farmconfig.php and it's not the problem.
marklets.php -- "marklet" isn't in farmconfig.php
pmform.php -- has "$_POST" in several places. Is the 2007-06-12 version.
Is it worth upgrading? I'd probably delete it. Only spammers use the
form and my email is on the site.
commentboxplus.php -- based on 2006 version, with note "changed layout
and prompts to match the rest of my site. Sandy" I wouldn't have stuck
to html and CSS and not touched the php. Like the above, only spammers
are using the comment box.
