If it is atomic, this must be a bug.

What I have noticed is that, when a post is being published and I close the window, the post gets published partially - one time only body came but not the subject. Is this supposed to happen?

I am not using wordpress client, but using it online to post on a blog.

It is definitely not.

Publishing post is just a form submit and series of PHP function calls. When you close browser window that is treated according to PHP connection handling rules and settings. So if script terminates early the publishing process won't be complete or rolled back to start either.

Thanks, but too bad, I think this definitely should be an enhancement. – Lazer Oct 11 '11 at 13:20
