    For some reason, this morning when I am working on a new post and click the Save and Continue Editing button, most of my post disappears. However, after I’ve saved and my post partially disappears, if I hit Preview> the entire post shows up. Any ideas?

    I think it must have something to do with the maintenance that was mentioned this morning, my posts are doing this also.

    I’m just trying to be patient and hope it’s resolved soon. ;)

    Whew! I thought it was just me — it’s happening to me too.

    It’s still happening to me on the following blogs:

    http://powerpointedinburgh.wordpress.com/
    http://pottingshed.wordpress.com/
    http://scottishwebfolk.wordpress.com/

    So, pretty much every blog that I’m involved with. Here’s what happens:

    1. I create a New Post
    2. I click “Save and Continue Editing”
    3. I continue to add more content
    4. I click “Save and Continue Editing” for a second time, but this time when it’s done saving it shows me only the content that I saved at step #2
    5. But if I click Preview I can see all the content as saved at step #4

    Something weird is going on …

    I believe the maintenance is completed now as th sticky post has been removed from the head of the forum.

    @sarakate
    Do you have a wordpress.com blog?
    If so would you please post the url?
    Staff monitor these threads on the forum but they cannot help you if they cannot locate your blog.

    I’m posting this separately for obvious reasons – it’s not directly dealing with the subject matter in this thread.

    Did you know that you can link your wordpress.com username to your wordpress.com blog?

    Linking your username to your wp.com blog in the forum
    (1) Go up to the top right hand corner of this forum page and look for “Welcome,_________ ! View your profile” and click “View your profile”.

    (2) Next click “edit this information”.

    (3) Complete the fields being sure that where it says website that you enter http://insertyourblognamehere.wordpress.com (no period at the end or the link won’t work)

    (4) Once you’re done click “Update Profile”. Voila! Now every time you sign into the forum we can click on your username and your blog will be linked to it.

    (5) Also note that there is a complete record of every post that you make to the forum on your forum profile page. Everyone in the forum can access it by simply clicking on “Member” next to your username. :)

    Thanks! And I’ll add my url link to my profile.

    Whenever I hit “save and continue editing” the post reverts to the previous save and strips all recent changes. Please find the problem, guys. http://www.luminaria.wordpress.com

    You’re welcome. Please check out the instructions above. :)

    TIPS
    (1) On another note it’s always helpful when you are creating posts to periodically select all the text and then click ctrl C to copy it so you have it in case something goes wrong. If something does go wrong with the auto save then you can crtl V paste and you have the text back again.

    (2) Using an off-line blog editor like Windows Live Writer or BlogDesk, etc. to compose posts in and upload them into your blog from means that you will always have a back-up copy.

    AAACK! It’s not just with the save & continue option. Every time I publish the post, it strips one or more items from the text or photos. So far, I’ve had no luck correcting a minor misspelling while retaining two photos and a link. It keeps using an old link that didn’t work very well, instead of updating to the new link. And every time I try it, my photos get nixed. Should I just wait and fix it later?

    I just noticed the tips on saving posts with ctrl C, that’s a good idea. But with what’s going on right now, I would have to save it, delete the whole post, and republish it.

    I suggest that using a free off-line blog editor (see above) means that you will be using your time well preparing posts while corrections are being made by staff. It will save you time, trouble and frustration. :)

    You can also set the timestamp on every post to move it into the future.

    Thanks. The timestamp thing though, that’s beyond my technologically-impaired mind.

    I’m having this problem, too (at http://thepumphandle.wordpress.com/) — and my published post has also vanished multiple times.

    I am having the same problem, along with after I publish an article it completely disappears. It doesn’t show up on my blog nor does it show up when I attempt to find it in the “manage” section. They are simply nowhere to be seen. I have attempted to publish the same article 3 times now with it disappearing into a black hole each time.
