I am trying to make a new blog post and it keeps saying unauthorized. Why is this? Can anyone help? Thanks.
The blog I need help with is lcenteno.wordpress.com.
There’s an issue with creating posts on the front page of WordPress.com and with editing posts created there that will not be fixed until the next upgrade. Do not create posts here > http://wordpress.com/#!/post/
Instead I recommend that you ONLY create posts here > Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New
If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.
Note: 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
If you are, please do these four things:
1. Try clearing your browser’s cache http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050
2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/
3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.
4. Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/
If you are not successful let us know which browser (and version of it) you’re using and post any error reports you get.
I had the same problem. Looks like WordPress doesn’t even save a draft when you try to post something new using that mechanism. :|
Luckily, I had my post saved elsewhere, but I think its worthwhile to warn anyone with this problem to copy-paste the content first before heading into the full WordPress admin area.
