Support » Fixing WordPress » Freezing when I try to save a post

  • my blog is hosted on wordpress…so is there a version? Do I update? how?

    Okay, that’s not my problem though.

    In the past week or so, when I edit a draft-post, about 75% of the time, it will freeze (spinning gray circle) when I try to save the draft. The URL doesn’t even start to change, it’s still the long URL with “edit” in the address. I could wait forever and it will never save. My only recourse is to copy all the text, reload the page (which takes away all my changes) and then past the content back into the post and try saving again. This will often work.

    (I searched the “support” page and couldn’t find an answer to this, but if it’s already been addressed, please just let me know where to look…)

    It’s almost like I have one “save” I can do on a post, and then I have to completely leave the edit page and come back to it before I can save again. It didn’t used to do this…it only started in the past week…possibly two.

    I’m on a mac and I’m using Safari. my blog is at

    This is my first post on this forum, so I apologize if I’ve left off any details that will help.

    Thanks in Advance

    If your hosted on wordPress.COM you need to post for help there, we don’t have access to better debugging like you’d need for that one :/

    (I would try Chrome though, just to see….)

    oops sorry. I should have paid attention to where I was. ha! I have posted the problem over there…sorry to bother you guys!
