Content Editor Webpart Error On Page

Issue: Unable to move Content Editor webpart from one place to another. We get the following error message “Error On page” on the Bottom left of the IE.
After moving the content Editor webpart , when we click Exit edit mode . It gives “Unexpected error has occured”.
Cause: This usually happens whenever we copy the HTML code from one Content Editor webpart to another. When we copy the HTML code it also copies the Webpart ID and it conflicts.

Resolution: Open the Site in Firefox\Chrome browser as IE will not give you the Drop down to edit the webpart
Modify the Content Editor Webpart
Open the Source Code
Remove the following Tag from the code for eg:- “id=WebPartWPXX WebPartID=”XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXX
Click Apply – OK
You can then move the webparts without any issues
