Ever since upgrading to 2.7, and now 2.8, screen options will not save on the dashboard or on the post pages. I have followed other forum posts about this and it seems that there are no resolutions yet. Can someone please tell me what they think could fix this?
It seems that others are having this problem as well -http://wordpress.org/support/topic/241808?
Here is some more information. I can see the options within the user-meta table but they never change. I even tried to create a new user to see if it would work and it does not. Ajax seems to work fine within wordpress and I have tried all the suggestions listed - http://wordpress.org/support/topic/164999
I have tried to save these screen options in IE, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari so it doesnt seem to be brower dependent. Appreciate any help as there are a ton of options, especially within post pages that I do not want to be shown and would like to reorder boxes so that, for example, I dont have to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to choose my tags.
