Any way to delete a post but save it as a draft?
I have some posts that are “timeless” (purely entertaining, not topical).
I’d like to change the order of a couple of posts. I can’t think of any way to do that without deleting/saving and then reposting. Can that be done?
The blog I need help with is majorleagueone.wordpress.com.
Edit the timestamp: go to Edit the post, then on the right-hand side you’ll find an option to schedule a post or change the timestamp.
Thank you. I’ve not gone there to try it yet, but I’m sure it’s the correct answer.
Unrelated question (don’t want to start a new topic, now that I have someone knowledgeable out there; sorry if that’s contrary to protocol):
Occasionally, code is appearing in my posts, e.g. see below. I edit and delete it when I see it. Why is it happening?
/* Style Definitions */
mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt;
font-family:”Times New Roman”;}
Happens a lot. You’ve got a browser extension of some kind that is injecting that code into your posts. Disable all browser add-ons, then add them back one by one to see which one is responsible.
Once I spot the codes and delete them (for now . . . rather than looking into my add-ons), will they stay gone?
FYI, I seem to have only one add-on (if indeed it is one): The default Firefox color scheme.
Are Adblock and plug-ins “add-ons”?
Adblock and plug-ins are add-ons. As for whether they’ll stay gone, I don’t know. Test it.
Thanks. I sure hope I don’t have to permanently disable Adblock or needed flash players, etc., just to prevent this problem on my free blog.
Just to be clear about this i do not believe the code you posted above is being supplied by your blog ie. by WordPress.com. I believe it’s coming from a browser add-on or a browser extension, or whatever you are typing or copying and pasting from elsewhere into the editor on your blog.
I understand. But you suggested disabling my add-ons one at a time to see which may be the culprit. If that test works, then I assume it means the only way to avoid these glitches in future is to do without that add-on?
Or does it simply mean that I should temporarily disable the offending add-on only for as long as it takes to create a new post?
