    This is a problem that has occurred for people all the way back to 2.5.x. @PFMRinteract up a ways described the fix I applied when I got this problem with 2.8.x, and that is disabling autosave in post_new.php located in wp-admin. The fix is to disable the function via commenting it out with //

    Problem is, I just upgraded to 2.9.2 and the problem has returned, even with autosave being disabled.

    Also, no Twitter tools here

    I have tried disabling the autosave. The problem with it, is that it does not fix the problem for pages, only posts.

    Any updates or solutions for this problem.

    Just a funny update. (By the way I am using wpmu)

    My problem was caused by uploading a theme. (I have no plug ins)
    I uploaded a theme a few days ago and it caused the problem. I deleted the theme and a few hours later the script worked perfect.

    I uploaded a different theme yesterday, which again caused the problem.
    I deleted the theme and 12 hours later the problem still persists.

    Here is the funny bit. Blogs that I have made for my users (Wpmu) are working perfect its only the main site that has the problem.

    So the reason I am worried is I think it also affects the emails been sent to new users. (I have tried and still waiting for the email with the new password to be received)

    I have also noticed another problem. When I log into admin at my main site it is now diverting me to my test site.

    My host id PHP5

    I'm using PHP5 under Debian 5.0 and I've upgraded WP within a week for each new version coming out. I don't have Twitter tools, and the commenting out of auto-save doesn't work.

    As a workaround, for the past six months I've been writing my posts in a text editor, then pasting it into a blank post in WP, saving the draft, getting the error, going back to my list of posts in my Admin screen, clicking "edit" to get back to the edit screen, then pasting in the post again (unless it auto-saved before I hit save). It'll usually work OK after that.

    I would try disabling plugins, and reverting to default themes, but I think that's a bit pointless since I have plugins and themes for a reason. I dunno - it's an incredibly annoying bug, but I'm willing to wait it out for however many years it takes for it to get fixed. I've been living with it almost daily for over a year now, so I guess I can last a few years longer...

    I started having this problem where post after post would give me a fail to edit message and I could never publish, except using the quick edit under edit posts.

    Simultaneously, I was having a problem with cforms not sending my form data through. The fix for that was to uncheck the Ajax enabled box for each form. Once I fixed my cforms to start working again, I stopped getting the fail to edit posts - and everything in the backend started moving a lot faster. Hopefully this helps someone!

    I was having the same problem creating new pages on a clean install with limited plugins.

    All In One SEO Pack
    Word Twit
    Tweet This

    I disabled AI1SEO and still got the error.

    Then I disabled BOTH twitter plugins and the errors went away.

    Will suffer with manual tweeting of new posts until this is resolved.

    Same problem, I added in mytheme / functions.php
    function wp_post_bug() {
    add_action( 'wp_print_scripts', 'wp_post_bug');

    I had an issue that was giving me errors similar to what is in this thread. Suddenly, and without any changes to my WordPress 2.8.4 installation, I could no longer edit, add posts, disable plugins, etc.

    The solution for me was that my wp_options table in my database was corrupted. Once I repaired that table, everything started working again.

    I'm having the same problem, and disabling Twitter Tools *does* fix it.
