    Hi there,

    we're a business-blog posting 4-5 posts per day which are mostly automatically posted (works fine most of the time)

    but sometimes (i can't figure out when or why this happens) posts getting unpublished (return to "draft") after they we're visible (published)...

    any suggestions? where could i start with debugging?

    i'd be so happy if any of you could help me cause this is really freakin' me out!!

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    hi esmi,

    the problem is, i can't reproduce this behavior - sometimes all works fine for weeks. on other days it happens with every post we publish.

    there is no post-modifying plugin activated or anything which could cause a problem like this one.

    i could imagine it has something to do with W3 Total Cache. on the other side caching is disabled for logged in users... so caching isn't related to editing a post

    perhaps it has something to do with wp-cron?

    is there anything like a "post-log"... something like the apache-access.log for things, wordpress does with posts?

    So try disabling it for a while.

    There is no "unpublish" cron job in WP core that I'm aware of.

    Nope - sorry.

    just got the information from the "editing-guys" that it isn't just unpublishing... sometimes wordpress seems to "forget" images or paragraphs in posts which once were there...

    seems to be really a caching problem, which would make it really hard to solve...

    i'll try with disabling the w3tc-plugin now... also i'm trying to write some kind of "what-happens-with-posts"-analyzer

    thank you for your help... i'll let you know, if anything solved the problem :)

    Have you checked the database after one of these "disappearances" to see if that object is still in the database?
