    Try FireFox. Something with IE and AJAX ain’t working. Look down at the lower left corner when you try to delete something; you probably have an error icon. Click it once and it will display the line and script that crapped and mine have always had ajax in the script name. I believe they use javascript (powers ajax) to accomplish these tasks and it’s not playing nice with IE, at least not IE 6 on Windows 2000. When I switch to FireFox on the same PC, everything magically works again. Not a solution, but it might be the workaround you need.

    Yes, something is wrong with AJAX and IE. The recent addition of SSL could be a further complication. I’m looking into it.

    The workaroud for deleting posts is to edit the post and then scroll down and click the Delete button. No AJAX is involved there so there is no problem.

    I’ll post an update when we get it working. I’m very sorry for the breakage.

    That worked for me.

    You can also toggle the visibility of the links – so even though you can’t delete them at the moment for some unknown reason, you can make it so that they don’t show up on your Blogroll. You do this on the Manage links page, where you can check the boxes next to the ones you don’t want, then click on Toggle visibility at the bottom of the page. This has worked for me, and I’m using IE.

    I think we finally got it. Login again to get a fresh cookie and kick the tires.

    I canĀ“t create new categories. I saw “You don’t have permission to do that” msg all the times.

    Same as above, I’m still getting that message when I try to create categories. So what’s the go with this? Is is being fixed up?

    Did you try Ryan’s suggesting of logging out, clearing your cookies, and logging back in?

    I can’t add categories either! And neither can I delete this other category I created long time ago. It says I do not have permission to do so. And yes I did log-out, clear and log back in. Twice.

    What gives?

    In order to create categories, do as usual, but instead of creating that shiny button press enter. For some reason it bypasses the error and your category still gets created.

    I dunno if this would work for several of these other problems as well.

    It still doesn’t work. Could it be a system problem because last night I could not edit an entry either. The connection timed out several times.

    Same problem for me… I can’t create categories. Also, I realize that there are bugs and there are temporary solutions around bugs… but I don’t want to have to log out, clear, log in or download an entirely new browser just to add a category.

    When is it going to be fixed?

    I’ve got the same problem: when trying to delete a post or page thru the ‘manage>post’, I can’t do it (i appears “you are not allowed to do this”, but it can be done in post/page edition. I’ve got administrator rights (i’m the only user, and I havn’t made any changes in my status)
    Thank you very much

    *sigh* Didn’t we go through this a few months ago when they did upgrades on the backend?

    Same here. Two weeks ago created a category with no problem and as a brand new user. Today, same process but I keep getting “You don’t have permission to do that.” Enter key doesn’t make a difference.

    Sounds like a system bug?

    As per the many other threads in this forum, it appears that an upgrade of some sort is occuring. Just hold on until we know more.

    Us old times like me and wank and marc and others have been through it before. :)

    Hi guys! Same problem on me and the site is really important… :/

    You can see the error thats chasing me every time I try to modify categories and such, on http://student.dei.uc.pt/~pgms/pub/error.gif.

    For the record, I’m using Firefox, I’m using several different accounts and I did not cleared the cookies.

    Greetz to all.

    #7486

    Yo Guys! It works (for now) for me!

    After reading that could be something wrong with the cookies, I remembered I never used IE7 to logon on my blog. I did that, and it worked!

    Apparently it’s something with the cookies. So if I use only IE7 to login with one account, I think that should be ok.

    Any further news I’ll publish them here.

    Greetz.

    I do have permission, I don’t have permission, I do have permission, I don’t have permission.

    I became aware of this problem only because one of my categories was deleted somehow (I’m pretty sure I didn’t do it mistakenly).

    Having a few problems are we? I must say I’m annoyed that I wasn’t informed of the many changes being made to WordPress.com, is there a way I can get email notifications of interesting pieces of maintenance news, if not PLEASE add one WP. Yes, I already read the blog and no, I don’t subscribe via RSS/Atom. Until a better feed reader is available for free on the web, I don’t have enough room for all of the services I use.

    Okay, I’m going to go try to edit my categories again, wish me luck.

    Yeah, I can’t delete some test Pages I made. Something is seriously wrong with the entire system. WP must have tried to roll in a new feature or upgrade and something went wrong.

    I’m sure they’re working hard to correct the situation.
