Invalid request: Twice in the past few days I’ve attempted to write very important blogs and when I hit publish it said “invalid request”. I’v done your fixes and still nothing. Plus, my blogs are gone and I have nothing! This is so frustrating. Please help
Blog url: http://carolinemcelroy.wordpress.com/
The blog I need help with is carolinemcelroy.wordpress.com.
(1) Are you creating posts on the main page of WordPress.com at this link? http://wordpress.com/#!/post/
If so, don’t do that. Create posts on your own blog’s dashboard at this link instead. http://talesfromhebei.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php
(2) Are you using the secure https:// login?
(3) Exactly which browser and version of it are you using. If you aren’t sure click here to find out > http://whatsmyuseragent.com/
Note 1: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see > http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html
Note 2: If your browser version is outdated you can upgrade it here http://browsehappy.com
(4) More troubleshooting:
a. clearing your browser cache and cookies > http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050
b. Using the browser with all extensions or add-ons disabled
c. updating the browser to the latest stable version (not a buggy BETA browser version) http://browsehappy.com/
d. Confirming third party cookies is enabled on the browser http://support.google.com/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=61416
g. Resetting your router and modem and rebooting your computer
then logging in using the secure https:// log-in
h. Trying another browser
DRAT! I made a mistake above.
I copied and pasted and forgot to change the link.
