New Page WON'T publish (25 posts)

    I cannot seem to create a new page. Here are the steps I'm taking:

    I click on Manage.
    I click on pages.
    I insert the data I need to insert.
    I click save.
    When I scroll down to Page Preview I get this:
    "The Page cannot be found."
    When I click on View Site, and click on the tab to the page I have created I get this:
    "The Page cannot be found."

    After five hours of this I am about to run screaming for the hills so that I cannot be found.

    HELP!

    "Save" is just saving the post as a draft.

    If you want it to appear, you have to click "Publish".

    I do click "publish" and it still won't publish.

    I don't understand why you click "Manage" to create a new Page? You create new Pages under the "Write Page" section. "Manage" is where you go to edit posts and Pages, and to change drafts to published and vice-versa.

    Link to the site?

    I apologize. I did in fact go to "Write Page." I wrote a page, clicked on "Publish" and when I visit my main page, the new page doesn't come up. It just doesn't work.

    Link to your blog?

    Are your Permalinks working? Does anything change if you set them to default? (Options -> Permalinks)

    Where/when do you actually get the mentioned error?

    WordPress sucks.

    Didn't see that before I responded. Probably wouldn't have bothered.

    Link to your blog?

    Yeah, I already asked for that too, and was completely ignored. Didn't see the point in trying to assist when she won't provide the info we need *to* assist.

    Didn't see that before I responded. Probably wouldn't have bothered.

    That was pretty much my attitude when I saw 1) she didn't provide a link, and 2) copped the attitude. Let her go somewhere else if that's how she wants to treat people who are trying to help.

    Different person/site, different attitude, similar problem.

    Link is http://www.oldstove.net.

    I can post w/out problem but when I "publish" pages (steps taken: write page, save page, publish page), they don't appear as either a link anywhere, nav or sidebar.

    Additionally/similarly, I attempted to delete the "about" page generated by WP admin as an example (so that I could replace it with something of my own). While the page is gone from my page editor, it still appears on the site (linking to a 404). Is this because I need to edit the global nav in the template code, rather than through site admin?

    I really tried to find an answer to this in previous posts, no luck...but I was able to learn how to swap out my header image so three cheers for collective problem solving.

    @oldstove - just for grins, switch to the Default theme. Do pages start showing as expected?

    Similar problem, when I write a new post to http://glasscityjungle.com/wordpress if I hit save and continue editing the post shows up as it is supposed to. When I hit publish the page lags and I get a page cannot be displayed page, yet when I refresh the post does appear online, though at times it lags and gives me a page cannot be displayed error. This has been happening for several days.

    2.0.4 is the version I'm using.

    Yes, Handysolo, they DO appear on the default. Should I monkey around with copying the sidebar code that captures the pages into the enlighten template?

    Thanks for your response.

    Hiya, oldstove.... the enlighten template probably is missing the "display pages" stuff that the default includes. You can try inserting this code in your sidebar where you want the Pages list to show:

    <?php wp_list_pages('title_li=<h2>Pages</h2>' ); ?>

    Note that this is the "bare" display as shown in the default theme; there are a lot of other things you can do with it once it's showing where you want it!

    [For a WONDERFUL theme that does super nifty stuff with pages natively, try mistylook - it's a supremely customizable theme too!]

    Thanks, I'll noodle with the code to keep Enlighten's look intact, and check out the mistylook theme, as well.

    For future readers...it was effective (if not aesthetically ideal) to copy the default header code into the enlighten header doc - I got my Pages link, and the search box to boot, albeit with a slightly disjointed appearance.

    My user is having a problem. He is set to administrator level and he has written a post. He has saved and published and it will not show up on the page. The page is http://www.themidpt.com.

    I have been able to publish just fine, this is his first attempt at a post and nothing is happening! Help!

    hi! I understand your frustration completely! I've had the exact same problem! I'm not a technical/code oriented person at all so I can't tell you why this worked for me but this is what I did to fix the problem!

    a) delete database to override existing problem of pages not working.

    b) start new database

    c) when you start new pages be very careful to fill in the page order field on the right hand side at the bottom. Assume that the example "about" page is "1" so your page should be "2". don't forget when you creat the next page that it should be "3" etc.

    don't ask my why but this seems to fix it!

    cheers

    I upgraded to 2.3.1 and the problem still isn't resolved. No amount of database cleaning, .htaccess tweaking, or reinstalling has fixed it yet.

    since there's so much problem, why don't you guys just use http://wordpress.com/ instead and stop whinning here about WP sux...

    On another thread I suggested to MatthewEbel to file a bug at http://trac.wordpress.org

    etagration1, why do YOU have the attitude when only the OP is the one who had the attitude?

    I have this problem just since upgrading to 2.3.1, but it's somewhat different.

    Everything's normal until I go to view the "published" page either in the page list or the site (manually typing in the URL) --- it's just not there. I tried writing the page twice.

    I put in an order number, slug name, etc. etc. Filled a lot of things out, did this twice. This is BAD I need pages. :-( I'm trying to build more content.

    Please try to help nicely, long time WPer. Thanks!

    I resorted to editing a draft I didn't want and it works for now. But I ran out of drafts/pages I don't want. :-(

    I have one more page to publish. Man! I shouldn't have deleted a couple of other pages before this happened.

    Here's what caused my problem:

    http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/5333

    And then they were hidden away in the drafts, odd thing is only the custom field got saved, nothing else.

    I saved a draft fine now, but heading to bed!
