No "Publish" Button?

    I try to publish a new post, or edit a post, and there seems to be no way to publish. I can't save or publish what I have edited or tried to post.

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

  2. A link to your blog would be helpful...

  3. The button is sitting in the upper right corner. You should have a box there named "Publish".

  4. Also, are you signed in as an administrator?

    I will have to check to see if I am signed in as an administrator. It is "my" blog, so I have been assuming that I am automatically allowed.

    Here is a link: http://nileshollister.wordpress.com

    When I click on "New Post" (near the top of the screen), and then put a new post together, there seems to be no button for publishing.

    This also happens when I try to edit a post or a page.

  10. What browser and version are you using? Do you see a scroll bar at the bottom of the page when you're writing a post?

    Google Chrome. I downloaded it about a week and half ago. I believe it was the latest version at the time.

    Maybe the browser is the problem. I will try it in Firefox and in IE and report back.

    Thanks for that.

    No scroll bar at bottom of page (when I just now checked while using Chrome).

    Just tried IE and Firefox (very recent versions of each). Same problems. No scroll bar on bottom in either.

    If I click on the edit button or the new post button near the top of the screen, there is no way to save or publish.

    If I click on Pages, near the left of the screen, and then select Add New, then there *is* a publish button.

    But if I click on Posts, also near the left of the screen, and then select Add New, there is not a publish button.

    Correction: there is a bar at the bottom of the screen in IE.

    This problem is really more serious than it might at first appear.

    I literally can't put up new posts on my own blog. There is apparently no way to publish them.

    Maybe there is a workaround until the problem is resolved?

    Does anyone know how to get around this?

    New posts just won't publish.

  15. I had the same problem and unfortunatly I went to the quick post on the draft page where there was a a publish button. It wasnt complete fix to my issue but I was able to publish my post.

  16. I recommend using a offline blog editor Windows Live Writer is real popular

    Thanks for those suggestions.

    lastory1 -- if I may ask, was the problem ever corrected -- were you able to get a normal "Publish" button on the blog?

    Also, if anyone knows where I should take this to get it resolved (if that is part of wordpress.com -- fixing software bugs), please feel free to post.

  18. You could contact staff directly at http://support.wordpress.com/contact

    Have you tried the Quick Post workaround? Possibly you would then be able to edit posts.

    Thanks. Will try that.

  20. I had this issue myself last night. The issue was caused by the post being scheduled to be published. After I removed the schedule, the Publish button came back.
