Post Editor Clears Updates (9 posts)

    I'm on a WordPress 2.0 clean installation and I'm having a problem updating posts in both the rich text and plain text editor. I have no problems creating and saving new posts. Once I attempt to update a post (in either editor) the changes save to the post and they can be viewed in the post. That's all good, but once the changes are saved to the post they are also being blanked out of the editor. So while the post looks correct all that remains in the editor is the information from the initial post.

    I'm using the following plug ins:

    Audio Player: http://www.1pixelout.net/code/audio-player-wordpress-plugin/
    Fuzzy Recent Posts: http://www.semiologic.com/software/recent-posts/
    WP-Contact Form: http://ryanduff.net/projects/wp-contactform/

    Any help with this issue is greatly appreciated.

    Anyone have any suggestions? This is a very bizarre problem because the post gets updated and can be viewed with the changes, but the editor reverts to the previously saved information. I've checked to see if this is some kind of a browser issue but I get the same problem in IE or Firefox.

    I had the same issue, and my "fix" was to disable the GUI editor in my profile, and use the good old textarea HTML editor.

    Thanks for the reply. What makes this frustrating is the fact that I've tried switching to the HTML editor and I'm still seeing the issue. I'm doing more testing as we speak to try and isolate the source of the issue.

    That's okay. I think it has something to do with having first edited something in the one editor and then later editing in the other editor. I've been creating new test posts with only the text editor and those update fine.

    I'm still seeing this issue even though I'm only using the plain text editor. I'd appreciate feedback from anyone who has a new idea or has experienced similar problems.

    I'm seeing this problem too. It corrects itself after a few tries. All this just means that I have to just be really careful when I post stuff the first time, so that I don't have to edit them again. ;)

    Yes would appreciate if someone can throw us a bone on this issue.

    Ok just found this other post where they say to clear the WP cache.

    Seems to have done the trick.
