unable to edit/publish

  1. I'm unable edit/publish my blogs, regardless of the computer/wireless network I'm using (and I've tested the problem on many). I'm only able to post using the "New Post" tab on the WordPress.com homepage. If I go into any of my previous blogs to edit, the "publish" feature does not work and the blog is then lost somewhere in WordPress limbo. Please help? Thanks! - Nik

  2. I never ever use "quick post" because it creates Asides and Asides are post formats. They don't have Titles and can't have Categories assigned to them.

    Aside – These are brief snippets of text that aren’t quite whole blog posts. Useful for quick thoughts and anecdotes http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-formats/

    You ought to be able to go here > Dashboard > All Posts > Posts and locate the post. If it's not there then go to the Screen Options pull down tab located in the upper right corner of your Dashboard. Select and include the Posts module:
    Post – Likes and Shares, Format (* Format module is displayed if the theme supports post formats.) , Categories, Tags, Excerpt, Send Trackbacks, Discussion, Comments, Slug, Author, Revisions, Writing Helper

    Edit the post and change the post format to a Standard post format.

    Standard – Your normal, average, everyday blog post. This is the default styling for your theme.

  3. The more I consider this the more I think you may have a browser issue.

  4. No luck. Either with the post format (already set to standard) or the browser. Before seeking help here, I'd searched for common browser related issues and had already cleared caches, updated what needed updating and ticked appropriate boxes.
    I cannot post no matter the browser (I've tried Chrome and IE), no matter the wireless network, no matter what computer I use, and no matter where I am in the world. Absolutely nothing happens when I go to push the "publish" button.

    I can only post is by way of the "New Post" tab on the homepage. Which is very limiting and this issue leaves me unable to edit at all. At a loss.
