Cannot Write Post & Blog Not Loading Properly

  1. Hi

    Using both IE and Firefox - Windows 7 operating system - the "add new post" page appears not to be functioning properly.

    The two tabs for Visual and HTML are visible but unusable, clicking on the HTML or Visual tab leaves the user still on HTML tab. Text is in white - not helpful on a white background. Also, the drop down menus for screen options and help on the main posts page do not work.

    Tried emptying cache on my laptop but no resolution. The problem also occurs when using a desktop. Checked my profile and the Visual Editor is enabled.

    To top it all, the blog is not loading 'themed'.

    Umm, help??!?!

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

  2. Staff are tinkering with something WP-wide at present, so I'd suggest leaving it for an hour if you can and trying again then. You might want to report this to staff via your dashboard so they know what effect their actions are having.

  3. Thanks for that.

    I've just checked with a guest poster and they have been able to access the New Post pages without any issues.

  4. I am still having the same issues mylittlechap is having.

  5. Me too. Same problems. Glad it's not just me.

  6. Me too. And I'm getting increasingly annoyed.

  7. I'm also having the same problems, and our blog formatting isn't working. It looks as if it's defaulted to text only.

  8. My sidebar is floating near the bottom of my screen - on the lower right. Text for my recent blog entry is too large. Anyone else experiencing this?

  9. Hey, all.

    I'm trying to get to the bottom of this right now—could some of you who are experiencing the problem test something out for me, please?

    Try to reach these links:

    http://s0.wp.com/
    http://s1.wp.com/
    http://s2.wp.com/

    If you are unable to reach any of them, please tell us if you receive an error message or other notification as to why.

    Thank you for your patience and cooperation!

  10. My problem isn't with the button. I added a post an hour ago and it isn't showing up on the blog. When I click the direct link, it opens up fine. But it isn't showing up on the home page of the blog. Why would it just not appear?

  11. OK, now mine just stopped loading themed.

    This is a different issue than the above, but I just checked and the most recent post on your site is showing up properly on the main page.

    Are you still seeing otherwise?

  13. OK, I made it to the first link but the second two were blogged as porn sites by my company's firewall.

  14. ...'blocked' as porn sites....

  15. OK, I made it to the first link but the second two were blogged as porn sites by my company's firewall.

    Thank you for responding. This was my guess.

    Please notify your IT department or click the link that may be provided on the firewall warning page to report the domains as NOT porn sites.

    We are likewise working on this from here but as we're dealing with firewalls that we're not in control of I don't have any kind of ETA as to when (or if) this might get fixed.

  16. OK, cool. Shoudn't be blogging at wok anyway. So, when I get home this should be solved for me. I'll let you know otherwise. Thanks.

  17. Yep, now I see it. Thanks. Sorry, wasn't trying to take the side track the issue.

  18. If you are experiencing the above issue related to a firewall blocking WordPress.com at your location, please contact your IT department for assistance.

  19. I cannot add a post to my blog, http://chamblee54.wordpress.com.
    I usually use firefox, but I tried Internet Explorer and it did not work either.
    I tried to add some pictures, and got an unnumbered error message. I decided to use the code for old pictures, and that and the text did not load.
    This is very annoying and I hope it is resolved soon.

  20. I am at the library now. I was able to add a brief post here.

  21. My blog is still a mess. My sidebar is pushed to the bottom and I know that my images aren't too large.

    Plus,the text of my recent blog title - situated where the "Recent Posts" widget is located - is very large.

    Could it be a problem with the CSS format? I don't want to fiddle around with it if this problem can be fixed through the WordPress technical support.

    And Markel, all three links: http://s0.wp.com/ http://s1.wp.com/ and
    http://s2.wp.com/ worked for me.

    The problem you are experiencing is different; this post:

    http://masterclasslady.com/2010/09/07/masterclass-discussion-thread-for-americas-got-talent-semi-finalists-group-2-2/

    has some HTML that is interfering with your blog's layout.

    We have a guide to help with determining problems like this here:

  23. I don't know if this is related to the problems stated above. However, when I log in, the tool bar at the top doesn't appear (where it says "dashboard" etc) so I can't get to my blog. Is there some way I can fix this. Thanks!

    Did you check the links listed above to see if it was firewall-related?

    If you did and the links checked out, you should contact us at http://support.wordpress.com/contact/ and we can take a closer look for you.

    It's probably not related (run the test links if you think it is).

    Normally, if you run into a problem with the admin bar not appearing, it can be solved by clearing your browser cache, then logging out of WordPress.com and logging back in.

    If that doesn't work, give us a shout at Support at http://support.wordpress.com/contact/.

  26. I am having the same difficulties as all of the above:

    Cannot click on tool bar at the top.
    When I clear cache, cookies, etc., and reload (IE 8) - then I can get to the post, but when I load a post to edit, nothing shows in the text editor.
    I cannot add a post or edit a post in either blog.

    http://www.kansasemstransition.com
    CTRL+F5 does not fix anything.

    The webpages (both of my sites) are messed up with the toolbars showing as html text in the middle of the sites. Ditto with all of the cache, cookie, etc. clearing, CTRL+F5. Nothing works to correct the problem.

    This has been going on since this morning (0800 CDT, US). It is happening on all of the computers on my personal network and on the computer at my husband's office network as well.

    Please advise. Thank you.

    Did you check the test links I provided above? Please give those a shot.

    After you've run the test, please drop us a support request at http://support.wordpress.com/contact/ and let us know what you've found. This sounds like your browser is not downloading the JavaScript and other files that are necessary for a lot of WordPress.com to work.

  28. Just figured it out. Both network routers were not allowing the wp.com domain. Something changed somewhere within the last 24 hours.

    Do you subscribe to a content filtering service of any kind that auto-updates your router rules? If you do, can you please inform us as to who the provider is?

    That would help us to determine what's going on for any users who might run into the problem.

    Thanks for any help you can provide in this matter.
