Support » Installing WordPress » Can’t edit/delete/create new pages/posts/comments

  • I just installed my new WordPress.

    But when I try to delete/edit a post or comment (or even create/edit new categories) it won’t do it.

    Forexample I click “delete” and it seems it went through, but when I go back to the same page, the post/comment still exists as if nothing has been done.

    I’m thinking it is a “read only” problem on one of the files, but I dont know which one.

    Any help is appreciated.

  • Sounds like a file may have gotten corrupted. You can try reuploading new WordPress files.

    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the whole wordpress, but didnt work…

    Any other ideas?


    Did you obtain a completely new copy of the installation files? They’re up to 2.1.3 now – which is 2+ what you’re using. You should use the new one anyway for security reasons.

    Its not on my website…

    It’s on and yes, I am using the newest files.

    and yes, I am using the newest files.

    Actually, no, you’re not:

    <meta name=”generator” content=”WordPress 2.1.2″ />

    and the URL is the above + “poker-blog” – the rest of the site doesn’t help your issue.

    Anyway, looking at the viewable portion of your site doesn’t really help, either – the stuff we need to see isn’t usually public knowledge. You say “it won’t do it” – but what *does* it do? Do you get an error message? Have you checked your log files? Did you clear your browser cache?

    I’m having the same problem. No errors, you delete a page, the dialog pops up says you’re about to delete the page, OK/Cancel…hit OK, the page ‘disappears’ from the list. But it doesn’t disappear, it is still there, and if you referesh the page list it will reappear.

    I found that by EDITING the page, and clicking the “Delete Page” button from within the editor, the page is actually deleted, for good.
