Hi Taz, I try to see javascript concole from Google Chrome and when I try to make a new block at Custom Block Manager, that javascrit console indicates like it:

jquery.js:9666 POST$$$call$$$/plugins/generic/custom-block-manager/controllers/grid/custom-block-grid/update-custom-block?existingBlockName= 500 (Internal Server Error)


[Violation] ‘setInterval’ handler took 66ms
[Violation] ‘setInterval’ handler took 60ms


This means there is an error on server side. You will have to look at your PHP log. Ask you system administrator / hosting copany to give you PHP error log and see what it says.


I had the same issue. Not only me, but also some of my friend that using 3.1.1
