    Screw this. Color me gone!

  4. The New Post button still doesn't work but the normal new post (via dashboard) does.
    Lots of posts with people still having problems. WordPress looks like they are very slow with a fix.
    Timethief, I went through all your suggestions (come on, a router reset, really???) no difference anyway, still get the error.

    Hi,

    I have also the same problem: I cannot post using the "New article" - button in the upper right corner of the page, but I can post fine using Dashboard's "New article".

    I did all the steps you suggested (except rebooting the router). And then I tried posting again and here is what I found out:

    1) In Win7 & InternetExplorer (9.0) -- > No error message is shown but the post hangs.
    2) In Win7 & FireFox (15.0.1) ---> No error message is shown but the post hangs (in FireFox 11 there was this "Invalid Request" info but it disappeared when I updated the browser)
    3) In iPad Safari (iOS6.0) --> all works fine
    4) In Win7 GoogleCrome (latest) --> all works fine

    Also we found out this:

    When the Publishing button is pressed, the method prepare_data of the script tries to do the following:

    if ( top.location.hash && data.ipt_referrer.match('newdash') ) {
    if ( top.location.hash.match(/\/welcome\/step\/post/) )
    data.ipt_referrer += '-nux';
    else if ( top.location.hash.match(/\/post/) )
    data.ipt_referrer += '-tab';
    }

    top.location.hash fails with the error, and the script never recovers:
    Permission denied to access property 'hash'

    Does this help you to fix this issue? A lot of people seem to have this same problem...

  6. Me, too! But this is the first time it's happened to me. Normally, I publish through the Dashboard, this is the first time I clicked on the New Post button and whoop! Invalid Post. Think I'll try again via the dashboard.

  7. I'm having trouble posting from the "write a post" tab but when I am viewing my own blog and create a new post from the pop out menu it works.

  11. Hi, Im having issues with this as well :( Have tried posting both from explorer on my PC at work and from my mac at home with safari and firefox. It was fine up until a couple of weeks ago then now I just get th "invalid request" message whenever I try and post from a computer. It works fine when I post from my iphone app, that thats a bit of a pain since I have to email the blogs (if they are long) to myself, post them through the app, then edit them from the computer.
    Please help!
