Editor stopped working?

    I just tried to edit any of my existing posts and none of the text is loading into the text editor (not using rich text editor). Anyone know if this is happening elsewhere or just specific to me?

    I tried to edit multiple existing posts and each time the editor loaded without any of the existing text. The title and tags loaded along with everything else, just not the content.

    I contacted support, but wanted to make sure if it was global or just me… :)

    It seems to be happening to me when attempting to edit pages.

    Exactly. Who let that bug out of it’s cage?? :-D)))

    I started an other thread about it but I marked it as resolved so that this one will be the main thread.

    This is heartbreaking.. it was a long post! Here’s to hoping WordPress doesn’t have to sleep with one eye open…

    Fix this!

    Get the DDT!!!

    I just checked and I see that too. One suggestion is that each time you go to save a post, highlight all the text and copy it to your clipboard (ctrl-c or cmd-c (mac)). That way if something goes wrong, you can paste it into a text editor to save it. You might also think about an offline editor such as BlogDesk and you won’t end up losing stuff and as a side benefit, you will always have a copy of your posts on your hard drive.

    this is wrenching. i spent a lot of time on that post!

    it’s a good idea to copy and save your text to the clipboard….but why should we need to?

    I use MS Live Writer as an offline editor, but it has issues with img tags. It works great for just text and some of the plug-ins are great, especially the copy/paste from Visual Studio. It doesn’t have the ability to edit tags since that’s relatively new here and that’s pretty much the only thing I use the WP editor for.

    The use of an offline blog editor is a life saver. I strongly recommend using one. They are free and easy to use. You write your posts in them and upload from the off-line editor directly to your blog. You always have a back up of every post and nothing is ever “lost”.

    I have this problem too. sassifer, your post might not be completely lost. Go to your drafts, look in the full list, and you might see it there. You can’t edit it, but you can view it, which means at some point you can copy and past the text. Not perfect, but better than nothing.

    I tried this about three times, just to see if it was a one time thing (I’ve had this happen periodically on wordpress over the past year) and it happened every time.

    thesacredpath, blogdesk sounds interesting.

    My edit window is empty but all posts are still listed and I can still preview it. I’ve copied the source from the preview page and making sure I don’t save the empty edit form.

    The edit form also shows empty for published posts.

    So wait.. I can see the headline and everything. But not the text, and this means it’s not lost?

    The problem with mine is that I published it right as it vanished…

    For reference:
    Raincoaster’s Workaround
    The workaround I found was to highlight all of the post (Control A on my machine) and copy it to the clipboard (control C) and, while everything was still highlighted, hit Publish. Then it went through without the warning coming up. See if that works for you. Even if you lose the post, you’ll still have it on the clipboard and it’s the work of a moment to do another.

    It’s “technology,” stuff happens, nothing is perfect. That’s why you need to take precautions if you don’t want to lose your work. I never trust technology completely.
