Support » Fixing WordPress » Problems with saving – changes not being saved

  • Every time I try to edit a post, WP is not saving the changes. I also scheduled a post, hit publish, and the post reverted to draft status.

    Is anyone else having trouble? I can’t figure this out. I’m running 2.7. Thanks

  • A little more info – I can create a new post and save it without any trouble, but cannot edit an existing post –

    I’m having the exact same problem. Any ideas? Anyone???

    we have a similar problem appearing non-deterministically. After several edits and saves, the saving “freezes” and the browser is just infinitely “Waiting for server…”

    Once it happens, it does not help to log out and log in nor switch browser. A workaround I found is to log out and clear Active sessions (this is how it’s called in latest FF beta 3.1 which has also a nice feature that you can clear just session from last hour). Then log back in and you can save again, sometimes only once.

    Thanks for any help with this annoying problem!

    Just to add – it happened in 2.6 and now 2.7, we are using the WP MU version. I am running FF 3.2 b3 or Safari 4 beta on Mac.

    I’ve had this same problem intermittently on one of my WP blogs – it began in v2.5 continued in 2.6.x and now in 2.7.x

    I contacted the host when they were still on PHP 4.x and MySQL 4.x and they twiddled something – I presume in htaccess or in php.ini but wouldn’t tell me what they’d done. Each time it seemed to fix it for a while then it came back. Each time I upgraded WP it came back. (I never thought to check, but it’s possible it also returned after plug-in upgrades).

    Now they’re on PHP 5.x and MySQL 5.x – it seems to have disappeared, but could be just the cumulative effect of all the twiddling and tweaking they did each time I reported it.

    Sorry I can’t be of further help on this, other than to recommend using your hosts live support function every time it haoppens – and be sure to tell them exactly what you were doing, with which WP page URL, and the exact error messages you receive.


    i have the same problem too.
    when i edit a post it show a error “Error while saving the changes.”
    i running on 2.7.1
