Any way to delete a post but save it as a draft?

  1. I have some posts that are "timeless" (purely entertaining, not topical).

    I'd like to change the order of a couple of posts. I can't think of any way to do that without deleting/saving and then reposting. Can that be done?

    The blog I need help with is majorleagueone.wordpress.com.

  2. Edit the timestamp: go to Edit the post, then on the right-hand side you'll find an option to schedule a post or change the timestamp.

  3. Thank you. I've not gone there to try it yet, but I'm sure it's the correct answer.

    Unrelated question (don't want to start a new topic, now that I have someone knowledgeable out there; sorry if that's contrary to protocol):

    Occasionally, code is appearing in my posts, e.g. see below. I edit and delete it when I see it. Why is it happening?

    Normal
    0

    MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

    /* Style Definitions */
    table.MsoNormalTable
    {mso-style-name:"Table Normal";
    mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0;
    mso-tstyle-colband-size:0;
    mso-style-noshow:yes;
    mso-style-parent:"";
    mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt;
    mso-para-margin:0in;
    mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt;
    mso-pagination:widow-orphan;
    font-size:10.0pt;
    font-family:"Times New Roman";}

  4. Happens a lot. You've got a browser extension of some kind that is injecting that code into your posts. Disable all browser add-ons, then add them back one by one to see which one is responsible.

  5. (RE codes)

    Thanks.

    Once I spot the codes and delete them (for now . . . rather than looking into my add-ons), will they stay gone?

    FYI, I seem to have only one add-on (if indeed it is one): The default Firefox color scheme.

    Are Adblock and plug-ins "add-ons"?

  6. Adblock and plug-ins are add-ons. As for whether they'll stay gone, I don't know. Test it.

  7. Thanks. I sure hope I don't have to permanently disable Adblock or needed flash players, etc., just to prevent this problem on my free blog.

  8. Just to be clear about this i do not believe the code you posted above is being supplied by your blog ie. by WordPress.com. I believe it's coming from a browser add-on or a browser extension, or whatever you are typing or copying and pasting from elsewhere into the editor on your blog.

  9. I understand. But you suggested disabling my add-ons one at a time to see which may be the culprit. If that test works, then I assume it means the only way to avoid these glitches in future is to do without that add-on?

    Or does it simply mean that I should temporarily disable the offending add-on only for as long as it takes to create a new post?

    Thx again.
