    This morning I was trying to edit one of my posts and the changes I made would not save. I tried making changes on both a published post and a draft. Changes won't save.

    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 default 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.

    - re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress?

    - increasing the available memory?

    Remember to press CTRL and F5 simultaneously when viewing an updated page/site. Or try emptying your browser cache. This should ensure that your web browser fetches a fresh copy of the page rather than serving up an out-dated copy from your own cache.

    - I deactivated all the plug-ins, and then went back to edit a post and my changes were still not saved.

    I tried switching to the default theme temporarily and it didn't change my problem.

    - I tried resetting the plugins folder via FTP and it didn't change my problem.

    - I tried re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress and it didn't change my problem.

    It's weird. I blogged last night and everything was working fine. I wake up this morning and try to edit a couple posts, and now I have problems.

    When I make the change in the edit post area the change doesn't save there even though I hit update/save draft. I don't have to preview the page to know my changes are not showing up. I think it's something within WordPress itself.

    I should also mention it's not letting me save any changes to page edits as well. I tested a page by deleting a sentence from my about page and when I hit "update" it showed my sentence back in there, like the update never happened.

    I went into phpMyAdmin and repaired my database tables. Everything works now.
