Support » Installing WordPress » Unable to save draft or publish in 2.8

  • Several of our wordpress sites after the 2.8 upgrade have lost editing abilities and the right side menu for saving drafts and publishing posts.

    I have tried all methods–even installed a brand new wordpress blog without any plugins or themes and the visual editor is missing. Re-installation was listed as the the resolution and this is not working.

    Any ideas?

  • URL?, and

    We were able to find a work around for, if it works for the rest of them then this is a bug in the 2.8 software that needs attention:

    Option for 2 column screen not present in add/edit page, thus, publish box, set to column 2 dissapears.

    FIX :
    in FILE : wp-admin/edit-form-advanced.php

    LINE 268

    add_meta_box(‘submitdiv’, __(‘Publish’), ‘post_submit_meta_box’, ‘post’, ‘side’, ‘core’);


    add_meta_box(‘submitdiv’, __(‘Publish’), ‘post_submit_meta_box’, ‘post’, ‘normal’, ‘core’);


    I tried that but it did not work for me (:

    Also, my Dashboard page is only coming up with one column and I can’t find the option to change it.

    What may be causing this?
