    I got into my dashboard to add a new post and, when I his the publish button I got a message telling me that my URL was not responding.And the dashboard freezes so I have to come in again to get to help. I was able to get to my website other ways. It seems that hitting that publish button is creating the problem. Any advice?

    First we should ascertain that the issue is not related to the content of the post you are attempting to publish...to do so, create a new post, name it 'test' and only type one word in the text editor, 'test'... and attempt to publish...

    If that works, then the issue is most likely with the content. If not:

    1) Switch to default unedited theme.
    2) Deactivate all plugins.
    3) Check your .htaccess and wp-config.php files.

    Attempt very simple test post again.

    If that works now, you can isolate which plugin or theme is problematic by activating one at a time and testing.
