WordPress, Please Help me!

U have had a problem for months getting my wordpress articles published. I cannot get wordpress or anyone to help me.  In hopes that someone may read this and can tell me how to contact someone for help, I will explain my problem again.  I have tried to “support” sites and get only replies from other readers who, like me, had problems and could not get anyone to help them.

When I write an article (copy it from my word processor) , the “publish” button will be GREEN as it always was, but at sometime during my writing, adding a title or photo, or tags when I finish writing, the GREEN button turns gray and will not let me publish. Sometimes, the button will stay Green, but when I push it to publish . it gets caught up on the gray publishing button with the “CLOCK” GOING ROUND AND ROUND INDICATING THAT THE COMPUTER PROGRAM IS WORKING ON YOUR COMMAND TO PUBLISH, AND IT WILL NEVER STOP THE “circling” motion and indicate that the article is published.

For a while, I was able to go the extra step of going to the “reader” page, select “new post” and publish through that venue, although getting photos where I needed them and other issues were difficult. Now, After I push “publish” A RED message comes up at the top of the page that says “invalid request:

Several times, including today, I have tried five or more times to get an article published, I would leave out tags, for instance, because I would loose the green button when I put in tags, several times, it didn’t work, but finally, I could get the article published, go back and press “edit” and add tags and categories.

It has become so frustrating to wonder if I will be able to successfully get my work published, that I hesitate to try.  There must have been some glitch or problem that I am not aware of which has interfered with my ability to publish.

If anyone is willing to help me, especially someone from wordpress,com, please write me at my email site, mtngrl752000@yahoo.com. and walk me through what I need to do to fix this problem.

I am not an expert with computers, so I need help in plain terms that U can understand.

Thank you for you help. beebeesworld

    I hope someone can help! I honestly think it might be your computer, your internet browser to be specific, possibly your internet connection. I don’t think this problem is that common which is why I think that. Good luck!

    Hi, If nothing else seems to be having a problem, have you considered your Word Press account might have reached its memory limit? Each account has a set limit so it’s possible WordPress may not allow further uploads.

    If you can’t contact WordPress, you might see if there is an old post or two you no longer need. If you remove it or them and can then upload a new post, it suggests a memory limit issue.

    If you have a free account the limit is lower than a paid account.
    Just some ideas I hope can help.

    You are having considerable difficulty. Hope a staffer helps. Here is a suggestion. If you are adding text, add the copy first. Do a copy and paste if necessary, and add a title. Then save as a draft. Once it is a draft you can edit with pictures and text or tags. Hope it helps.

    I should write about your problems on one of the WordPress pages – even one that deals with something else. Freshly Pressed maybe. “All very well being FP’d but some of us can’t publish” that sort of thing and see if a guru comes forward to help you.

    I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as
    with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?

    Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a nice
    blog like this one nowadays.

      I have found a way around the problem-but still have trouble with putting photos on-I just “publish” before I put in the title or tags, then quickly go back and edit. I will keep this note and try to rewrite it to your staff-Ive rewritten it so much, I just want to write BLOGS right now, but I will get back to you if the problem continues-thank you so much for your help and your wonderful blog, wordpress! beebeesworld

    Maybe a stupid question, but you are pressing “save draft” before publishing?
    If you’ve made changes after last saving a draft there may be an autosave that is later than your last draft, and then the system simply wouldn’t know what (which version) to publish.
    Just a thought. Hope your issue is solved soon.

    If you are going for most excellent contents like I do, simply visit this web site every
    day for the reason that it offers feature contents, thanks

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed
    to be at the internet the easiest factor to understand
    of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed at the same time as folks think about concerns that they plainly
    don’t recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined out the entire thing with no need side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
