Support » Fixing WordPress » Problem with post-new.php in v2.1

  • Since upgrading to version 2.1 I can no longer make posts 🙁

    When I go to page /wp-admin/post-new.php I get a script error:

    Line: 173
    Char: 290
    Error: Access is denied
    Code: 0
    URL: http://……./wp-admin/post-new.php

    Everything on the page looks ok, but I can’t click into the body of the posting or enter any text there. (I can type a heading ok, just not the body.)

    If I refresh the page I get a different error:

    Line: 122
    Char: 22
    Error: ‘this.contentWindows.document’ is null or not an object
    Code: 0
    URL: http://……./wp-admin/post-new.php

    Any thoughts? I’ve deleted the site and re-downloaded WordPress 2.1, re-uploading to the site, but with no avail.

  • I have the exact sam problem… have tryed everything I can think of without any result. It seemes like whe are not the only ones with this problem so I really hope we can find a soulution soon!

    I downloaded the latest version of tinymce just now and uploaded it to my site but alas, no success – the same problem. 🙁

    I’ve found that it’s associated with the domain used in the URL to post-new.php. E.g., if you call it from it’ll work, but if you call it from it won’t.

    The post-new.php page seems to contain some JS (I guess it uses AJAX) to do something, and asks for a resource from a specified domain. If that domain doesn’t match that in the URL to your post-new.php page, the browser will disallow it for security reasons (cross-browsing cookies, etc.).

    Hope this helps.

    Has anyone figured out howto fix this problem, I have 2.1 too and I am having this problem.

    Fixed it by re-installing the TinyMCE from the Worpdpress 2.1 distro package.

    Actually it didn’t fix it and when I re-installed I still have the same problem.

    I fixed my problem! Follow stufyles advice.

    1. Go to “Options”
    2. Change “WordPress Address” from “” to “”
    3. Change “Blog Address” from “” to “”

    For some stupid reason they don’t put the www in there on the install. I found that wierd from the start, but I didn’t realize it would cause such a fuss.

    I’m still getting this problem, even in 2.1.2

    Thank you SO MUCH to stufyles and jmhumr. It makes so much sense now…. 🙂 I’m so glad I wasted three days on this problem! haha

    THANK YOU!!!
