Problems Editing Posts

  1. pigletinportugal

    I have been experiencing problems editing posts over the last few days.
    I go to edit, edit the post, press update but nothing happens. It is not even saving an autodraft. I've just spent an hour editing my 101/1001 challenge page and then it would not update. I've never experienced this problem before, but now it seems to happen everytime I try and edit.

    Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    Hi timethief,


  9. Pip - try Chrome - I always resort to Chrome when ever there is a problem

  10. Hi, I'm trying to reproduce this problem, but editing posts is working for me.

    Could you guys provide some additional information?

    First, as a first troubleshooting step, can you please try clearing browser cache to make sure it's not a temporary caching glitch?

    If you're still having trouble after that, can you try saving a draft or publishing a post again but this time watch for any errors or any notices or warnings in the browser status bar and let me know if you find anything?

    I have been having the same problem! I think it is because it is not automatically saving, so when you go to publish or preview it shows the last saved copy. When I clicked "save draft" I lost everything, but when I used the shortcut for saving (Ctrl + S), it worked. Try that and see if it works.

  12. I am having the exact same issue. I use chrome and I have cleared the cache and still am having problems. I am editing existing posts and click update, the written post font changes and if I click update again, it wipes out all of my written post. I have had to wait for autosave and then restore to get post to show.

    Chrome does not work either :( I am not even getting an autosave!

  14. I am having trouble editing now, before I upgraded my memory I couldn't post anything with visual editor, the page would go blank when I hit update. The memory increase helped me to be able to post. My editing features don't work now and when I have the article posted the "read more" link won't open when clicked. I have used other themes, deactivated plugins,cleared cache and tried ctrl. f5 in admin. nothing works I have asked for help at but no response,so I came here to see if anyone has any ideas.

    Do note that this is the forum and there is no FTP access or plugins so you appear to be posting to the wrong support forum. http://wordpress.ORG/support provides support for WordPress.ORG installs - we do not. vs. The Differences
