I haven't been able to save posts for the last week. When I try to add a new post, I can add the title just fine, and I can type the post, but none of the post text saves when I click Save Draft. I also see an empty post when I click Preview. The same thing is happening with Pages, too, and I can't upload images. I haven't added any new plugins. The only change I made was adding a file to the root directory through my host, but I tried deleting that and the problem persisted.

I've tried: -updating themes and plugins

-logging out and logging back in

-clearing browser (Chrome) cache

-using a different browser and going incognito


  • did you try, just in case, to disable your plugins? – rudtek Jan 22 '18 at 17:10
  • I didn't try it, but it worked just now! Thank you so much! Now to play process of elimination to find the culprit... – Abby Jan 22 '18 at 17:14
  • I'll post as answer. Would you then hit the check mark to close the question out as answered? – rudtek Jan 22 '18 at 17:18

More often than not this is caused by a plugin update or incompatibility. I would suggest disabling all your plugins and trying again. Then re-enable a few at a time until you find the culprit.
