No, not to forms, if I am in the site section in the Touch UI interface and select a page to publish, its giving me this error message and doesn't publish the page..
Is it specific to Forms or are you trying SITES page?
One Quick Question, Have you applied Target on this page. Because same happens with me too if I perform targeting and try to publish the page. :(
Any fix for this issue ?
I have also faced the same issue. I have noticed whenever there are any references to a page (eg. Campaigns, Activities), then Failed to retrieve references for selected page error comes on publishing a page.
Any solutions you have got to resolve this?
Thank you in advance.
Sorry for late reply, might be you have already fixed this issue, but it will help others.
On this specific page you have used an OOB reference component, which is not able to retrieve its references. You can either create a package of this page from other publish node or can redeploy the code on this publish server.
