WP 2.7, Preview of draft post gives "Sorry, no posts matched your criteria" (3 posts)

    I've upgraded from WP 2.6.5 to WP 2.7. I can log in as admin and go into my WordPress dashboard and pulled up a list my draft posts. When I clicked on preview for any of those posts, my site will come up but the post entry only shows "Sorry, no posts matched your criteria". I noticed that the address for that post is in the format of:
    http://rdesgr.com/WhatsAllThisThen/?p=some number]

    When I click on view on a published post, the address format is:
    http://rdesgr.com/WhatsAllThisThen/year/month/some number]

    Is this format difference the problem for my preview?

    That's the way the URLs should look for the previews. Are you using WordPress's "blog address" feature? Go to the administration area and click on the Settings tab on the left. If, for example, your files are actually located at '/wordpress/' and you have it point to '/WhatsAllThisThen/' the previews give that error.

    I had this same problem. Previews don't show up if you're using that virtual directory feature. If you want to change the name of the directory, you have to (sorry) go into FTP and change the name of the folder physically. Be sure to change it in WordPress first.

    I was having this same problem with 2.7. Cleared cookies in my browser, logged back in. Now preview works. Good luck!
