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, firstname.lastname@example.org. 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
