    I use my website to write a long posts which is impossible to split up , because it is written in specific order, i noticed that when i write a long post (many words) WordPress removes my Post Content after saving or previewing , this is really annoying, how can i solve this problem? (i can edit files using ftp.)

    thanks in advance.

    I don't understand the question. Do you get a automatic excerpts? I have a WP install where I post articles of considerable length without problems.

    How long are these posts? In words or characters?

    In settings > Reading > set "For each article in a feed, show" Full text.

    There was nothing about the feed in the original post. Alkalem, I have no problems with 1800 words articles. Does the problem remain when you use default theme? A link to the website would be helpfull too.

    after saving , post content disappear, you will see an empty post. i tried on default theme and other themes , and i tried on other wordpress versions , i think it is a limit , what php file is responsible for this kind of matters,so i can edit and change this?

    If there is a limit (and I'm not 100% convinced that there is a practical limit), it's well beyond 1800 words. Are you creating these articles in another application and then pasting into WordPress? If so, what application are you using?

    i have created them using MS-word , so i decided this week to publish them on my blog, how can i post them without splitting them up?

    If you're pasting content directly from Word, that might be the problem. The pasted text will also contain Word's own formatting. Sooner or later, this formatting will stop your pages from being displayed correctly (if at all) in Internet Explorer. If you cannot possibly manage without Word, paste your text into NotePad (or another text editor) first, then copy from NotePad into WordPress.

    i tried this, i tried to paste also as a plain text, it doesn't solve the problem, i read somewhere that there is a limit of words per post in wordpress , i think we should edit some file in wp-include folder..

    There is no limit (as far as I know), and it certainly isn't 1,800 words. Editing some file in the /wp-includes folder is always a bad idea.

    i agree with you , but it seems to be the last resort, do you know what file in wp-include responsible for this kind of matters?

    Alkalem, with three people we are telling you that it is highly unlikely that there is a limit, but you insist of editing some file. Isn't it more likely that the problem lays somewhere else? Not that I have a suggestion...

    I have the same issue, it happens when I insert shortcode ... aka mediafiles like pictures. that and the other shortcode somehow make the content field remain but display nothing. must be when its parsed.

    when I add an empty post with 15 caption shortcodes, the page comes up. (ie upload via media manager 1 image and copy inserted code one by one.)

    when I add the image a 16th time, post blanks out on me.

    One caption image with a 10.000 character blind text works. With 20.000 it blanks out. One caption image with 17 1000 character paragraphs is fine ... add another it blanks out. Add another caption image to the 17 1000 character paragraphs, it blanks out.

    This is not nice at all.

    same problem here.
    post with 10.000 words craps out, does not show.
    shorten post, works fine.
    Yes, there is a limit to a wordpress post.

    It would be nice to know the character or word limit at this point.

    I have worked around it by including an iframe with text doc inside.

    i have not tested, but would expect that as a textarea field, it is limited to about 54K or so. max. (including any markup).
    Why this is not clearly noted in wordpress codex docs is beyond me.

    iframe or includes are only options I see around this. at this time.

    I have 19 photos on a page. When I add the 20th, the page goes blank.

    Same kind of issue.

    There must be a limit... but it makes no sense.

    well I'm posting articles ... at 43,000 words and it takes it, but when I add another 800 it chokes!! :P ... I've got to now post one at 175,000 words for a member ... I think i'll just chop it into six pieces ... but it came from another website where it was posted in an html page and it was fine! I was hoping to find some secret to let wp handle it ... oh well.
