Well, I fixed the issue with quicksaving, but now there seems to be another problem. I started a new character to test out all the recent mods I added and now it will not progress the main quest past turning in the tablet to the wizard in Whiterun.
I removed the mods, started a fresh character, but the error is still there. I tried forcing the next quest to start by using the console, but no luck. Not sure what to try next but I might have to reinstall.
