Long Pages/Posts Get Cut Off in TextArea (8 posts)

    When working on longish posts or pages the content in the textarea of WP doesn't appear in full when I click "Save and Continue Editing".

    I usually have to refresh the page a few times to get it back.

    It was only an annoyance until I accidently saved a long page (instead of refreshing the browser to try and get the full content back) and that cut off a massive amount of content which is now lost forever, it would appear.

    Anybody had that problem? Any ideas?


  2. WYSIWYG editor on or off?

  4. Could it be your browser? I just pasted literally 50000 words into my write page and hit publish. The post showed up fine and when I hit edit, the entire post showed up in the textarea.

    Using Firefox v2.0b1 and WordPress v2.0.4.

    using Firefox (it automatically updated something last week) and WordPress 2.0

    Could it be a plugin doing it - I've added a few lately.

  6. Try deactivating them and trying again.

    I believe it is the newish versions of Firefox. I just had to get and my template textareas get cut off. Really can mess things up, but it's only after I save and view the editing page again.

    I really hope this doesn't happen to my posts or I will DIE.

    I can't go back to an older version of Firefox, because they stopped working ever since I used this program that goes with it to backup settings.

    How do I get that new Firefox version?
