Post Preview Not Working ???

  1. I'm working on new posts and the "preview" option doesn't seem to be working... All I see is a blank screen :\ ...no "preview" ...nothing.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    Note: I'm currently using the ChaoticSoul theme....maybe that's it?

    Anyone???

  2. Unless they are changing it back (oh, please, oh, please!!!), try opening a tab/window with the url for your blog post with the ID number of the post such as:

    http://example.wordpress.com/index.php?p=1234

    See if that works for you.

  3. At the very top of your post one line lower than the tile and the left see the blue "Preview" link - click it. The short story is that the large lower preview box was removed because of the length of time it took to load the page and the fact so many users are on dial-up. The good news is that right up by the title you now see a "Preview" link so the ability to preview a post before publication is still there. :)

  4. @lorelle: oh, me too! [crosses fingers...and toes]

    I tried your idea...nada. :( thx tho! I guess I'll just have to "wait and see"...

    @thistimethisspace: Yah, the blue "preview" link is to the very right of my posts...did that, doesn't work. :\ It was working before (like, back when I made my last post several days back), just not now. Nah, I'm not talkin about the large lower preview box...tho, I do wish that was still there too! but, thx for your input. :)

  5. Mark has made it clear that the large lower post preview box is not coming back. And as the "preview" link isn't working for you it appears you will have to send in a feedback. :(

  6. @timethief: thx :( I just may have to do that...

    I thought maybe my using FireFox was the prob...nope! Just tried Safari...same thing. :\

  7. ...just tried to "preview" again. It's working now, "yayee" :)

    I still have no idea what happened, but thx again to everyone for their input.

  8. YAY! I love happy endings :D

  9. Not happy for most people, who would rather see it put back the way it was, before it was changed without any user consultation of advance warning :-(((

    You seem to be making the same complaint into multiple threads forum threads. I'm thinking this is an exercise in futility and a waste of your time. Bloggers voluntarily answering questions on the forum don't make these decisions staff and management do so I'm sure after 30 years in IT you do know that posting over and over again to the forum is not likely to bring about the change you desire. Your best bet is to communicate directly with staff through use of the feedback button. It's found on the upper right hand corner of any admin side blog page.

  11. Already responded to in another thread, so I won't waste time posting here again :-)

    Thanks for your co-operation. Your best bet is to communicate directly with staff through use of the feedback button on Monday. It's found on the upper right hand corner of any admin side blog page.
