Despite Google and Forum search, I cannot find anything on this, so here goes.
I recently installed WordPress 2.0 here (http://memetic-selection.no-ip.info/) on top of EasyPHP 1.8, on Windows XP, with the wordpress installation in the root document directory (not one level down in ‘wordpress’). I must admit I’ve got a fair number of plugins: RumMovie,Ultimate Tag Warrior,runPHP,Fuzzy Recent Posts,SimpleTags,SRG Clean Archives,and WordPress Database Backup.
Everything seems to be working fine, save I have a really weird problem with editing published posts. I can edit a post, save the changes, VIEW the changes in the Blog, and then later the changes to the post “vanish”.
As I write this I remember one other pecularity that might be causing that, although what is causing IT, I don’t know: One edit, when I pulled up an previously edited article in the editor (and I’m NOT using the WYSIWYG editor, I’m coding the posts by hand), it DISPLAYED the newer version of the article in the preview frame, but the SOURCE CODE in the editor box is from the ORIGINAL version.
To me it feels like it’s a DB problem – COMMITs and ROLLBACKs? That’s just a guess, and what would be causing such ‘version flutter’ I don’t know.
I guess, for now, a “workaround” is NOT to edit articles, but ‘cut-and-paste’ the source code out of an ‘old’ version, delete it, and create a whole brand new post with the same source code and title, although that won’t work if there are any pingback, will it? Fortunatly (?) I’m a brand new blogger – no one is linking to me yet 😉
