    I am unable to delete posts. In the admin section when I click “Delete” to a post. It fades out and disappear. But when I refresh the page, the post is still there. And it is also still there in the website.

  • Hi! This happened to me once, too. Just make sure you are logged in as Admin!

    Hope this helps.

    I am logged in as admin. This happens for both Firefox and IE7.0 browsers on Window Vista. I had been able to delete posts before. Then the delete failed to work. Then the next day, it worked again. And now the delete doesn’t work again. I also had intermittent problems editing post in the Rich Text editor. I’m getting “Access denied” javascript error when the admin panel tries to switch to the Rich Text editor.

    Sometimes disabling all plugins might be a helpful diagnostic tool. Sometimes, shifting back to the Default Theme might yield results… I don’t know, let’s hope someone more knowledgeable, like a Moderator, reads this. Good luck!

    After much searching and experimentation, I figured out the solution to the problem.

    In the Admin -> Options setting, my WordPress URL and and Site URL is set using the www domain prefix (as in http://www.example.com)

    But whenever I access my the admin interface without the www domain prefix (as in http://example.com/wp-login.php), then I have problems mentioned.

    Whenever I access the admin interface with the www domain prefix (as in http://www.example.com/wp-login.php), then everything works fine.

    Moral of the story: When accessing the admin interface, make sure you use or not use the www domain prefix depending on whether your site is setup using or not using the www prefix.
