Writing your Post and WP publishes something entirely different

  1. I am happy with WP most of the time, until you work hard on the post, save, preview, edit, save again, just to find out that what appeared to you multiple time while writing, editing, saving and previewing, was published all wrong on the page, I know exactly how much space is required for the thumb nails I am using, everything should be exactly as I wrote it.
    Please go to my blog and see if you can tell me what I am doing wrong, this is so frustrating and would be one of the things that would make me say to heck with Word Press. The preview button should show you exactly what you are going to get when you hit publish!!

    Please help right now I am not a happy camper.

  2. Sorry, the url is.

  3. Are you talking about formatting? or content?

    Are you composing and formatting directly in the Write Post box, or are you using an offline program and pasting that in? They give very different results, even if you tweak the formatting after the paste?

  4. No writing a new post by clicking New Post button. You can see how the photos are all ascue down the page, the print is not where it is suppose to be, it is really disconcerting after spending so much time writing the post.

  5. Ah, right. Some of the problem you're experiencing is that you're not counting on the Caption space that's added to the images. If you delete all the Caption code in the HTML editor, you should avoid those problems. If you want to keep the captions, just allow more room, from 10 vertical and horizontal pixels up to 30 or 40 for multi-line captions.

    I, myself, generally use full-size images and center them, but I can see where thumbnails would be more useful for you. I also strip out the caption code most of the time, though. Try it; you have to do it in the HTML editor, and then add a closing
    </p> but it's easy enough, since all the Caption code is in square brackets. Just highlight and delete both opening and closing.

  6. Thanks I will try to correct this problem. you have been a big help, just wish that it would tell you these things instead of making you think you can just add a caption and be done with it.


  7. Well, they're very proud of teh caption code, but it doesn't show up in the Write window and can cause all kinds of issues. As long as you know it's going to happen, it's not such a pain to work around.
