"Invalid Request"

  1. supermomplus and banjogrrldiaries, do you have better luck if you post via Posts -> Add New in your blog's Dashboard?

  2. I will go try that now - *fingers crossed*

  3. yes it worked! Thank you so much!

  4. You're welcome!

  5. What could be the problem or solution if I am having a very similar problem though I'm not even getting an invalid request message? I can write out a post and save drafts and all but it just won't recognize a click on the "publish" or "update" button.

  6. I'm having this problem too. Is anything being done?

  7. alexbks65, please try a different browser, like Firefox or Chrome: http://browsehappy.com/

    If that doesn't help, please start your own thread: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/support#postform

    shipwrekkt, do you mean that you see "Invalid Request"? If not, please start your own thread: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/support#postform

    If so, do you have better luck if you post via Posts -> Add New in your blog's Dashboard?

  8. I'm having the same problem. I click publish post and get "Invalid Request." What can be done about this? This is a very important post for myself and my brand new fiance.

  9. @redgrange
    Where is the URL starting with http:// for your blog please?
    Have you read through this thread and tried what Staff have posted into it?

  10. Okay, for those who are having problems, I selected the entire post and opened up a new Dashboard, and tried it there and it worked.

  11. hi, i can't seem to post a new blog entry, please do fix this up, thanks in advance

    Hello, I'm receiving the error using Firefox 14.0.1. What should I do?

  15. I had the same problem: invalid request when I clicked publish. Same as redgrange, I selected my text and pictures, ctrl-C, went to top left corner, selected New Post in a new tab, pasted with ctrl-V, and publish worked.

  16. Same problem..

  17. I am having the same problem... :(

  18. Me too.... And it´s not for the first time in the last couple of months. Very annoying and it does not encourage me to get the version you pay for.

  19. I am not able to post from the main page. I can only post by going through the dashboard. I am also getting "Invalid Request" sometimes when I try to post. If I upgrade to Pro, will there be a number to call for support?

  20. I am having problems posting a Photo Blog post - Invalid Request comes up.

    Same problem here. Invalid request every time I try to make a new post.

  22. Just as an update to the above... I am trying to post a Photo Blog item and I get the Invalid Request. While I can still post through the advanced Dashboard option, there is not an option to post a Photo like Blog, just to insert photos into a text blog.

    So my problem is with the Home Page Blog post - http://wordpress.com/#!/post/

    As opposed to the http://<BLOGNAME&gt;.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php - which is OK.

  23. I'm having the same problem - invalid request - when I try to post.

  24. I have starting using the Dashboard Post Items rather than the Home Page one. The Home Page simplified Post option is where the Invalid Request occurs. I suspect it might be due to some changes behind the scenes?

    To get the Dashboard one, hover over your user icon (top right), then scroll down to the last item and hover. Here you should see options for;
    Dashboard
    New Post... etc - Try using this New Post option. This works for me. It is a little more complex/advanced but it works.

  25. i'm having the same problem.
    - invalid request.
