Support » Fixing WordPress » Draft Preview of new posts and pages not working

  • Resolved GopTun


    I was very happy with my wp setup until today. I can no longer preview my drafts of pages and posts. Posts: When I click on preview, I always get an older post (let’s say xxx). Pages: I get the same xxx post although I closed the preview window prior to clicking preview. It is like it is stuck on this xxx post although older pages and posts preview perfectly. One way around is either publish before previewing or work on draft while set to private. Both not ideal.

    I deactivated all plugins via folder renaming and new folder via ftp.
    Upgrade is set to latest version 3.2.1.

    –> to now avail.

    Any tips appreciated. Thanks.

    Have you tried clearing your browser’s cache? Or using another browser/machine?

    Actually we are 2 people working on the site on different computers…we got both the same problem.

    I can preview when I set the visibility to private…but that is just a workaround.

    Any other ideas?

    I just tested on IE. The same. No can preview. I never used IE for wordpress work prior to this testing.

    Have you tried:

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    – resetting your custom permalinks back to the default setting via Settings -> Permalinks & deleting any .htaccess files. If this works, then review Using_Permalinks before setting a custom permalink structure back up again.

    esmi, thanks for help. My friend just let me know that the preview works on his computer again…not on mine – yet. I read in another forum that another person had the same problem, but resolved itself after a few days. Maybe this one is such a temporary glitch?

    If the problem persists or reappears on my friend’s computer I will try your previous 2 suggestions, which I didn’t have time to follow up yet.

    my website is I cannot post or publish anything to my site. Now it is not appearing which was earliar that publish my topic very easyli.anybody can see & help me how I can publish or post my writtings to site. my e mail is PL HELP ME

    I finally got it to work. However, I doubt the solution will help anybody else.

    After working another 4 hours on the problem (and having found out that the index page is not showing either) and about ready to give up I remembered that somebody in a forum mentioned the database table wp_redirect (or similar) – which I dont have. So instead of giving up I logged into cPanel yet again, checked Domain name redirects and indeed – there it was! One of our admins actually redirected the original domain name to a post. I removed that entry and all was A-OK again.
