[Manifesto Theme] Possible bug on"Save Draft"

  1. I thought this was a general 3.6.1 issue as it only started after upgrading, but I have a number of WordPress blogs and this is only happening with the Manifest theme.

    When I open a draft post to edit, make some editions, then click "Save Draft" it does so without a problem - but only the first time. Thereafter, if I continue to edit and click "Save Draft" for a second time, instead of simply saving the edit, it opens up a Preview of the post in a new window (just like pressing 'Preview). It DOES save the post, but when i go back to the edit page, the 'Save Draft' button is greyed out with a spinning wheel of death next to it, and it stays that way until I leave the edit page.

    In the meantime, the button does seem to save a post, although each time, it still opens a Preview page as above.

    I tried this on three other blogs and could not replicate the issue.

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

  2. soutra.wordpress.com is no longer available.
    The authors have deleted this site.

    The blog linked to your username has been deleted. What is the URL of the blog you refer to please?

  3. P.S. We have a Manifest theme, not a Manifesto theme.

  4. Sorry - two things wrong with my entry above.

    First the theme is 'Manifest', not Manifesto.

    Secondly, I thought I was in the WordPress.org support forum - please ignore the above and I will take my comment to the correct place.

    Apologies for wasting your time :)

  5. I know Manifest is used in WordPress.com too so I wonder if the same issue arises?

  6. Thereafter, if I continue to edit and click "Save Draft" for a second time, instead of simply saving the edit, it opens up a Preview of the post in a new window (just like pressing 'Preview).

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate, have different logins and run different versions of theme by the same name. Note that we do not provide support here at WordPress.COM for any installs of WordPress.ORG software and versions of themes. We provide support only for free hosted WordPress.COM blogs being hosted right here on this multiuser blogging platform.

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate, have different log-ins and run different versions of themes with same names. If you don't have a username account at WordPress.ORG click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.
