Two Posts Will Not Be Deleted (2 posts)

    I have two posts - one published and one still in draft. Neither of them will let me delete them. I tried publishing one just to see if I could delete it after publishing it. I'm frustrated!

    It may be a database error because I was running BleachBit to clear out hard drive files at the time I was writing this post. Then I went ahead and saved it. After I realized I can not make changes to the post and I can not get rid of it either.

    Is there a way to go into FTP or the database and get rid of these ghost posts from there? I'm not making any progress from the WP admin.

    Thanks for any help. I've been using WP for years and have not ever come across something this weird.

    You´ll have to go through phpmyadmin and delete the post manually.
