I’m not sure about the second comment you made, but the OP sounds like a problem with a php setting max_input_vars This can happen when submitting more fields that is allowed by PHP. Try installing this plugin and then saving the post where you’re having problems with things not saving. If this is the problem you’ll get a popup that will tell you what you setting is. https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-max-submit-protect/
