Why do I get a failure message?

    When I try to preview or save a post, I get a failure message “Are you sure you want to do this?”

    a) This message is unhelpful as it provides no information on the nature of the error.
    b) There is no coding in my blog that should cause this, as it happens only sporadically.

    What is the cause of this, and what should I do to avoid losing the information I have entered?

    The blog I need help with is cohn17.com.



    Could you try clicking on [Save draft] before publishing the post?

    Do you also encounter this issue in a different browser? for example Firefox or Google Chrome?

    Otherwise please send us a screenshot of the page where you’re seeing this.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.



    When I click on [Save draft], the same thing happens.

    I don’t use other browsers. Why should Safari be different from other browsers, i.e., why would WordPress have a problem with Safari?

    It doesn’t happen every time, so I don’t have a screenshot, but all you’d see is a box with the message in it.



    Testing a different browser will help us see if this problem is browser-specific, since it’s not a consistent problem. It this happens again, feel free to send us a screenshot. You can upload this to your media library or send it to us by e-mail.
