I am using CMSB 3.57 with permalink 1.10 and experiencing an issue with multi-record editor.

It works fine with a category menu section. BUT with the multi-record editor I get a file not found error when clicking the preview button when editing a record. The record has been saved.

Both editors point to the appropriate detail page and the preview URL is left blank. 

list($blogRecords, $blogMetaData) = getRecords(array(
    'tableName'   => blog,
    'where'       => "blog.num='" . getLastNumberInUrl() . "'",
    'loadUploads' => true,
    'allowSearch' => false,
    'leftJoin'    => array(
        'bios' => 'biosNum'),
    'limit'       => '1',
    'debugSql'    => false,

I wonder if the where clause is causing the preview to fail. If so what should it be?

Hi Jeff,

I've experienced this before. It's seeing the last number in url as 9999999999.

Try something like this, using the $blogPageWhere string to set your query (set from preview:num, or to use your normal page query):

if (getLastNumberInUrl() == '9999999999') { // if preview mode
$blogPreviewNum = intval( @$_REQUEST['preview:num'] );
$blogPageWhere  = "blog.num = $blogPreviewNum";
} else {
$blogPageWhere  = "blog.num='" . getLastNumberInUrl() . "'";

Hope this helps!
