  • Wondering if anyone has a fix for this? I am having same issues…

    I post preview and it takes me to my homplage of the blogs.

    2.7.1 upgrade is supposed to solve this issue. It appears to be caused by a caching problem.

    Here’s a fix to try in the meantime: clear your cookies and cache in your browser. Close all browsers, reopen it and try logging back into your WP Admin. Should solve the issue. Did for me.

    This doesn’t fix anything, and 2.7.1 hasn’t fixed it either.

    Blog URL is:
    Wordpress URL is

    Eveyything works, except preview. Checked on multiple browers/platforms/computers. Deactivated all plugins.

    just doesn’t work.



    I’m having the same problem since 2.7, and still with 2.7.1. I get a 404 page. This is happening on two entirely different domains.

    same issue here – although not with a new install of wp with a fresh database.

    Must be an updating issue

    Appears to work for me in 2.71.

    Same issue here at – only ever used 2.7.1, all ok until yesterday but now cannot preview anything, keeps saying “Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.”

    have tested in firefox, chrome and safari and same problem in all even after clearing cookies/cache.

    the problem does not appear in IE7.

    any ideas?

    I’ve found the answer at

    I had my blog at “” and had a subdomain of “” but I’ve changed the wordpress general settings so that the url is the same for both and a 301 redirect should get my subdomain working ok.

    preview is now working in all browsers.

    Thanks steeephen for the update. I’m also experiencing the same problem. I attempted to change .htaccess and managed to make a mess of things. Everything is now back to normal to my relief. As I’m not an expert with .htaccess, could you pls tell me what I need to code up for this. Much appreciate.

    I have the same problem, started with 2.6 upgrade. I thought it was .htaccess issue as well so I set my permalinks to the default and still no success in IE8 or Firefox 3.

    I see strings going back to 2.5 with not a single solution.

    For me it was a mismatch in the WordPress address and blog address. Once I made them the same (removing the www from one of them), the preview suddenly worked like it was supposed to. Yea!

    I take it back… Still not working for me in 2.7.1

    I’m getting this since I upgraded to 2.8.1



    I am getting the same issue in 2.8.4. This was not happening in 2.8.1

    Try disabling and re-enabling Google Gears in your web browser and see if this is still happening.
