WordPress.com/Preview Post Not Functioning

  1. WordPress.com "Preview Post" issue.

    When I compose a post and select save draft, I usually want to preview it before I post it. Smart, right?

    It would be, except for the last week or so, the preview hasn't been working. It keeps throwing the following error...

    Has anyone else had this issue? Is there something that I'm not doing? Please help! :)

    The blog I need help with is schnikism.com.

  2. Hi. Have you tried any of the tips here?

    If not, could you please specify which browser name and version you use?

  3. I have refreshed and cleared the cache. Still "not found." I'm in Firefox 5.

  4. Thank you. There is a known bug with Firefox that involves mapped domains like yours. More information and workaround here:

  5. Hey! Thanks for your help!! :)

  6. Glad I could help :-)

  7. I am having a similar problem. I'm using Safari and Mac OS X.6.8. The first time I want to either save or preview a post it will work. The second time and thereafter, I click on save and nothing happens but the little dial icon going around and around. Same thing when I hit preview.
    So my post changes are not saved. I have to copy the post, go to All Posts, find the draft and click edit, and then paste the updated post in. Once I do that, I can preview it one more time before starting the process again.
    I have cleared the cache on the browser.
    I can live without previews but the not saving is a real problem.
    This started happening when I started getting the post-publish page about how many posts, how many words, etc.

  8. This is definitely a Webkit bug, affecting both Safari and Chrome, so we'll have to wait for them to fix it. There's nothing that we can do on this end.
