preview post -> "page not found"

    I’m creating a new post, have saved a draft I’m editing, and click on “Preview” – and it 404s me, saying it can’t find the page. The draft is showing up under All Posts in my dashboard, but it insists it can’t find the preview. I was hoping I’d find a bunch of recent posts here from people with similar problems (as has happened before when there’s been some server issue that would be resolved in time), but not this time. Any ideas?

    The blog I need help with is



    I’m having a similar problem after creating a new post, except only with my Home Page. It come up as “not found.” This problem just started about 3:30 p.m. EST, and after seeing your post, perhaps it is attributable to something regarding the creation of new posts.


    I just saw the same thing a short while ago. All my previews are coming up as ‘sorry you are looking for something that is not here’ or not found.

    I also am seeing an issue with publishing links that redirect to a wordpress page on types of blogs. Anyone else seeing that?


    Roger that…same here


    Same with my posts. “Not found” and “sorry you are looking for something that is not here.”


    I meant to say with my new posts–preview function is not working.



    Ah, phew! Not that I want to take joy in all your own problems or anything, but there’s some comfort to see that it’s probably a widespread server-side thing, of the sort I’ve experienced before and which has been fixed quickly before, and not just my own blog getting fudged. Fingers crossed someone clever at WordPress can do something clever to fix it all soon.


    Also getting the same error. Would love an answer to this, as I post regularly like I’m sure many users here do.


    Snap. The message I get is:

    Page Not Found

    Unfortunately the content you’re looking for isn’t here. There may be a misspelling in your web address or you may have clicked a link for content that no longer exists. Perhaps you would be interested in our most recent articles.

    I’m not doing anything different to when I normally add new post.


    Here’s the snarky little message I’m getting when I attempt to Preview:

    “Problem? Looks like you have a problem here sir/madam. You sure you have the right place? Maybe you got a little lost? Maybe you’re looking for something you’re not supposed to find? Either way, just go search for it, it can’t hurt.”



    i’m experiencing the same thing.



    i’m also getting the same error message.


    I contacted support and will let you all know what the response is, if/when I get one.



    So WordPress, what is the answer?





    I am having the same problem which suddenly began as I was ediitng a post I had created and tried to preview it. I got the message, “Oops . . . where did you get such a link?” I tried it repeatedly and got the same message, even when I tried to preview a different post. It is obviously a Word Press problem. Can it be fixed?


    Same here!
    Wordpress, sort yourself out, will ya? LOL:)



    My “startpage” is gone. Message: page not found. It was ok earlier today, but now its gone :(


    Same here. :-)


    Oh, it works again.

    Thanks, WordPress. :-)
