Support » Fixing WordPress » Cannot edit saved/draft posts

  • Hi-

    I recently upgraded WP to version 2.1. It had been working fine. As of this morning, I can begin writing a post, but as soon as WP autosaves the post, I am no longer able to access the “body” field of the post to continue writing.

    Please note the following:

    1. I experience this error both in Firefix and IE 7;
    2. The browser gives me an error (lower left corner) which indicates: that access is denied from Line 173, Character 290; and
    3. I have already tried re-uploading wp-admin/post-new.php, but still receive the error.

    This error has been reported at the forums at The advice provided there was “It sounds like this will require staff assistance to rectify so please send in a feedback with a link back to this thread.”

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

  • Note: I have also upgraded a second blog to v. 2.1. At the moment, that blog is not experiencing the same issue and I am accessing them both from the same PC and browser.

    This is a problem that is associated with the domain of the URL. I’m not sure of the details yet, but it’s to do with the browser’s security rules on cross-domain access. Try adding or removing the “www.” subdomain if you have one. IE7 and Firefox will be told to use a specified domain somewhere in that JS which doesn’t match the domain in the URL to your post-new.php page.
