Reiner had you guys do something to get my blog back up and running this morning, but I accidentally hit edit instead of post when I was trying to get to the Advanced Editor link and see how things looked in there, and now that blog has unpublished itself again. Yesterday I also had problems with blogs publishing instead of saving when I used the "Save as Draft" button. Just a heads up.
FEAR THE MONARCH!
Another heads up, if you guys didn't just fix my blog or fix the blog system, then publishing from the Preview section of the Advanced Editor's "Write" tab appears to have republished my blog.
And now it's gone again. It was back for a minute, but disappeared again.
I have confirmed that republishing from the Preview section of the Advanced Editor's "Write" tab does in fact republish the blog. I think it being unpublished might have had something to do with me making a post in here, this post should confirm that.
Edit: Well, it doesn't seem to be the case that posting in here caused it to unpublished. I'll keep posting any observations I can make.
@Jon, I'm not sure what's up but our fix isn't working for you. I've reapproved your post for now.
not working for me either, on a whim I wrote some random gibberish in the blogging software, worked fine, tried my actual article, no dice.
I also tried to clean up a older article I wrote, guess what, it's gone now too.
My blog did not post. I wrote it yesterday, and I tried posting again. No luck. I got no error message.
Quick question? Is someone actually working on a permanent fix for this? It is getting insanely annoying.
Yeah, I would appreciate a PERMANENT fix as well, please. Can't post to blog, can't post videos. I have a daily post I am making and I would like to be able to post it on my blog, not to my about me page. :(
@itsafaintaccent, you should be good now.
@the darkest link, your posts are up, but your username is keeping me from allowing you to bypass the actual problem. PM me if you want to change it.
@soulfly and @GameJunkie, I didn't see any missing posts for you guys. Your names have been added to an ever growing hack we have in place to allow users to bypass the problem altogether, so you should be able to post without any issues. If you're still having problems, let me know.
As far as a real PERMANENT fix, we've got plans on how we're going to do that and we're going to meet on it today. The thing is, it's not a simple thing to do so it's going to be a little while. I wish I could say more, just know that you guys have been heard.
Thanks for the response and efforts. Much appreciated. I will try to post one later today and will revert back if it gives me trouble.
The glitch has struck me multiple times, too. Tried twice to get a blog up and it didn't post.
Dang. Again I tried to post another review and it doesn't let me put it up. It says, "doesn't allow duplicate posts", but I never posted it to begin with. :(
