    I upgraded to 2.8 yesterday and since doing so I am unable to save or publish new posts. Every time I attempt to do so it sends me to the error page of my site. How can I fix this??

    I have the same problem, but I don't get an error.

    If it is a previously published post you edit and save, the old post is loaded (so changes you made are lost).

    If it is a new post you save, a blank post is loaded after submit.

    I had the same problem. It seemed to be fixed (at least temporarily) by disabling my plug-ins, and then finding a theme that was compatible with 2.8. My original theme wasn't compatible. I also emptied my browser's cache, but I'm not sure if that helped it or not.

    Thanks for the tips! It definitely is a WP 2.8 Bug as far as I'm concerned. It also seems to be tied to something about server configurations and the ability to write to the server.

    I have 3 different hosting services that I use to work with WordPress with 3 different server configurations. On 2 I can automatically upgrade plugins and WP itself. On the 3rd, which requires a manual upgrade unless I set permissions to 777, none of the suggestions above has worked.

    On one of these sites, there was no problem after upgrading manually or automatically (I should mention I Have 12! installations of WP on this site for use by students). Publishing functions works fine on all installations.

    On the 2nd automatically upgradeable site, after automatic upgrade was complete, I could no longer change the status or publishing information until I deactivated all of the plugins. The publish did work after re-activating my plugins, however.

    On the 3rd site, the one which won't allow automatic upgrade or installation of plugins or the WP program, I'm unable to edit the status or other publishing settings once I've published a post. I can update a post, but I can't change the post status, visibility or publish date.

    I'm looking now at having to move my entire primary site (which is large and not entirely WP-based) to a new hosting service.

    I would love to have some thoughts from WP developers on what is the problem. Or better yet a fix to this definite bug in the WP program. WP is far less valuable if it is server configuration specific (beyond the basics of Apache, MySQL & PHP and theme specific.

    Again, my thanks to thatmegirl for the tips on her problems.

    I'm posting an update on my previous post. I began a systematic test of the various plugins I use regular and recommend starting with Askimet.

    Quick Summary of WordPress 2.8 Issue

    It appears that some people are reporting problems with upgrading to WordPress 2.8, particularly with customized themes and plugins. The only problem I experienced was with the Publish options failing after upgrade on two of my WordPress-based sites on two different hosting services. By deactivating all of the plugins and reactivating them, I was able to restore full functionality to one site. On the other site, I needed to deactivate, manually upgrade all plugins requiring updates, and reactivating them one by one. Once that operation was complete, full functionality was restored.

    My Troubleshooting Method
    On the my primary site, which has the installation that cannot be automatically upgraded for WP or plugins, I deactivated all plugins, logged off, closed the browser and started again.

    At this point the Publish box fields (status, visibility, date) began to act normally. I then began re-activating my standard plugins one by one. If the plugin needed to be upgraded, I manually upgraded the plugin before re-activation.

    Askimet: After deactivating and re-activating (and having to re-enter my API key), the Publish box problems disappeared on all sites.
    Contact 7:After deactivating, manually installing the upgrade and re-activating, the Publish box problems disappeared on all sites.
    Feedburner Feedsmith:After deactivating, manually installing the upgrade and re-activating, the Publish box problems disappeared on all sites.
    Google XML Sitemaps:After deactivating, manually installing the upgrade and re-activating, the Publish box problems disappeared on all sites.
    Wordpress Database Backups:After deactivating and re-activating, the Publish box problems disappeared on all sites.
    Headspace 2: After deactivating, manually installing the upgrade and re-activating, the Publish box problems disappeared on all sites.
    WP-Events by Arnan de Gans:After deactivating, manually installing the upgrade and re-activating, the Publish box problems disappeared on all sites.
    Bad Behavior: After deactivating, manually installing the upgrade and re-activating, the Publish box problems disappeared on all sites.

    I still consider this problem a bug in WP 2.8, but it appears to be primarily a compatibility issue that is resolvable. Perhaps the WP developers should consider some kind of plugin check or deactivation for automatic upgrades. Certainly, a warning or alert notice of potential plugin problems would be in order.

    I'm just glad I found a solution. I'm still looking at moving my primary site to another hosting service, however.

    Ok guys, i am writing this because i was having same issue, i finaly found the solution , my DATABASE LIMIT SIZE is 100mb , i was pass -48
    The reason i use plugin Wassup This records all logs into database i had 120 megs of wassup logs, i clean wassup in database and it worked i was able to save post again.

    so check your database LIMIT SIZE , make sure you are not pass the limit size if so check what plugin is taking too much space.

    cheers,
