[resolved] Post Preview (3 posts)

    I try to write my posts a few days ahead of time, but I still want to see what they will look like when they go live. The older version of WordPress featured a post preview at the bottom of the write post page, but 2.3 has a "preview" link.

    When I click the link, I get a message telling me no posts meet my search critera. Is this because I am scheduling my posts, or is there another problem going on? How can I get a post preview?

    Problem solved!

    My site is linked to a subdomain, but hosted in a specific folder. When I upgraded to WP 2.1, I had problems with this setup - namely telling WP where my files were located. It crashed unless I told it both the folder (http://randomstring.host.net/blog) and where people accessed my site (http://mysite.mydomain.com).

    When I upgraded to WP 2.3 (and later to 2.5), this caused problems. The "Preview" link took me to a site like http://mysite.mydomain.com/?...preview=true. Since WP thought my blog was at a different address, though, I could never see my posts.

    Changing everything to JUST reference http://mysite.mydomain.com fixed the problem. Now, I can preview posts. I can also view my page when I'm logged in and it's under Maintenance Mode.
