I've searched archives on this problem, but none seem to quite match it exactly. A recent post is both taking a long time to publish and not actually publishing. That is, saving the post is taking a long time, and it is actually saving in the database (it appears in the "Manage" dialog.) However, it isn't being published per se: it won't appear on the main page and direct links to it turn up 404 errors. I would assume this is a problem with my database, but I'd like to know if there's a WordPress problem here. There are no trackbacks; that isn't the issue. Any ideas?
