    I posted something today and noticed a mistake. I’m having difficulty correcting it. I wrote the hyphenated word drum-role. It should read drum-roll.

    The blog I need help with is ldlagarinowordnovice.wordpress.com.

    When I edited a post – to correct a spelling – the post was re-issued! Is there any way to edit/correct old posts without re-distributing them?

    Thanks for any help

    Hmmm, it shouldn’t do that unless you change the date.

    So, I publish a post, then realise it has the wrong category. I edit the post, change the category and then click “update”? And it will not re-post?

    No, it shouldn’t.

    It seems to have worked. I have no idea what happened last time, but I seem to have got it right now.

    Many thanks!
