What happened to Preview?

  1. How does one preview a new post before publishing it? Is there a way to see the post as it will appear using the new post format?

  2. Hi there,
    If you can’t preview your posts, pages, or themes on your blog – you may need to enable third-party cookies in your web browser. http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/

  3. Note: If you are logging in on the main page of WordPress.com and trying to create a post here http://wordpress.com/#!/post/ you created an Aside rather than a standard post.

    I never ever use http://wordpress.com/#!/post/ on the main page of WordPress.com 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 look in your Drafts. Edit the post and add your video to it and even change the post format to a Standard post format.

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

    If that's what's happened then in the future only create Posts in your own blog's dashboard here > http://imageguy.wordpress.com/post-new.php
