can't publish post

  1. can't publish post - Hey y'all. yesterday I tried to write a post and hit publish and the icon for publish just spun and spun and never made the post. I tried it a bunch of times, closing all my browser windows etc., but to no avail. Any help? Thank you.

  2. please try upgrading or switching first.
    Note: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see > http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html

    If you are, please do these four things:

    1. Try clearing your browser’s cache http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050

    2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/

    3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.

    4. Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

    If you aren’t successful let us know which browser (and version of it) you’re using and post any error reports you get.

  3. Rats! I left off a sentence at the beginning of my comment above.

    If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.

  4. Hi!

    I ran into the same problem today. I copied my post and tried posting it from my blog (the front page, not the backend). That helped me. Hope your problem has a solution :-)

    Best regards,

    if you aren't doing so now then I recommend that you log-in directly to your own blog by using this link http://fiftyshadesofbleu.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

    There's an issue with creating posts on the front page of WordPress.com that will not be fixed until the next upgrade. Do not create posts here > http://wordpress.com/#!/post/

    Instead I recommend that you ONLY create posts here > Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New
    http://fiftyshadesofbleu.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php

  6. Thanks for all the help! I am so not tech savvy, but from your suggestions I've figured out it is my browser so I did the blog from Google Chrome this time (which I hate because it has pop ups that I can't figure out how to make go away) but it worked so thank you!

  7. You're welcome.
