[resolved] You do not have permission to preview drafts (6 posts)

    I cannot preview a post draft. Published or not. Saved or not. Browser doesn't matter. The error is:

    You do not have permission to preview drafts.

    The url of that message is

    <http://www.bfmcmillen.com/?p=598&preview=true&preview_id=598&preview_nonce=81ba3e4e6b>

    If I delete

    &preview_id=598&preview_nonce=81ba3e4e6b

    I *can* see the preview. Is anyone familiar with this?

    Thanks.

    The blog directory and the blog location were not the same. They were listed under the General Tab as:

    http://bfmcmillen.com/blogdirectory
    http://www.bfmcmillen.com

    Changed that to:

    http://bfmcmillen.com/blogdirectory
    http://bfmcmillen.com

    and the issue resolved.

    I cleared the cache from all cookies and restarted the pc. After a new log in to wordpress: problem solved.

    OMG thank you SO much for this!!!
    This solved not only my problems of not being able to preview my edits, but ALSO the problem I had that I could not leave comments myself! The page constantly asked me to log in before leaving a reply (which I want users to do, to minimize spam), but even when I was logged in, the comment box would not appear, only the line telling me to please log in first.
    I wanted my URL to show my domain name, and not the actual hosting address, so I used the actual URL for the blog location, and my domainname for the page URL. Changed both to http://www.my-domainname.nl, problem solved! Thanks again!!
