Error: "Unauthorized" When Adding New Post

  1. When attempting to Post a new blog post I received an "Unauthorized" error message. What's that all about?
    Blog url: http://reasonablehope.wordpress.com/

  2. There's an issue with creating posts on the front page of WordPress.com and with editing posts created there 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

    If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ 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 are not successful let us know which browser (and version of it) you’re using and post any error reports you get.

  3. I'm on Firefox 16.0.2, so that shouldn't be the issue. Thanks for the heads-up about the front page post-creation issue. That is where I was working from. Will try from Dashboard.

    Thank you!

  4. You're welcome.
