Support » Fixing WordPress » Save draft button missing in v4.8.3

  • rsamgifted



    Ever since updating to the latest version of WP, we are missing the “Save Draft” button. Is there any other way to save changes before publishing, so that I can come back and work on it at a later time.

    I am also not seeing a “Plugin” button in the dashboard or the wp_admin page.

    Please help.

    – deactivating ALL (yes all) plugins temporarily to see if this resolves the problem (plugin functions can interfere). If this works, re-activate them individually (one-by-one) to find the problematic plugin(s).
    – switching to the unedited default Theme (Twenty Seventeen.) for a moment using the WP dashboard to rule out any theme-specific issue (theme functions can interfere like plugins).
    – If the above steps do not resolve the issue, try MANUALLY updating. Download WordPress again and unzip it. Access your server via SFTP or FTP, or a file manager in your hosting account’s control panel (consult your hosting provider’s documentation for specifics on these), and delete then replace your copies of everything on the server except the wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory with fresh copies from the download. This will effectively replace all of your core files without damaging your content and settings. Please read the Manual Update directions first.
