    Now when I try to publish a post, it says: "Invalid Request".

  3. (1) How are are connecting to the internet and to WordPress.com?

    I'm asking because the way you connect to the internet (mobile, satellite, DSL, dial-up) and to your blog, and how many proxy server jumps etc. it takes to connect can cause problems. There maybe be problems with your ISP and/or with the proxy servers. Also note that the main dashboard isn’t designed to work with touch devices through the tablet and smartphone browsers.

    (2) Exactly which browser and version of it are you using. If you don’t know click here to find out > http://whatsmyuseragent.com/
    Note: If you are running IE9 in compatibility mode then be aware that it renders as IE7 and IE7 is not supported.

    (3) Have you tried?
    clearing your browser cache and cookies > http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050
    using the browser with all extensions or add-ons disabled
    updating the browser to the latest stable version (not a buggy BETA browser version) http://browsehappy.com/
    using another browser

    (4) Are you logging in using the secure https:// log-in? see http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

    I am using Windows 7 and have not had a problem previously. I have cleared my cache. I can post replies to comments, btw, just not post.I am using IE8.

  5. Would you like to try these two things below that have worked for others?
    (1) go to http://browsehappy.com and download a Firefox 15 browser;
    (2) login using the secure https:// login link. For you that's this one https://feelingtoinfinity.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

    I employed the second option you suggested, which worked. Thank you! My question is, why did my usual method suddenly stop working today?

  7. Hooray! I don't have an answer to your question However, I do know that using the secure login link is recommended.
