Two days ago, I wrote and published a post through the new post editor. The title of the post was visible above my header picture but no post showed up on the site. I re-wrote the post through the old WP admin route and published it successfully that way. The title of the post remained though, above my header picture.
I thought about this strange phenomenon and yesterday, I discovered that the post I had written showed up as a ‘page’, and that’s why the title appeared above the header picture. Why or how, it works like that I don’t know. Anyway, I deleted the page and restored my site to how it should be. I assumed I had either selected the wrong button or there had been wobbly gremlins at work.
Tonight, I wrote a short post using the new post editor again. This time, I carefully noted which selection I made, i.e ‘Add’. I published the post. The title of the post appeared above the header picture and this time, the post was on the site as well!!
Action: I deleted the ‘page’; the title disappeared from the header. Unfortunately the post was deleted as well. I have no idea if I can retrieve the post from the bowels of WP, or, if the post has disappeared for good. Has anybody any ideas please how this ‘page’ issue can be corrected?
One thing is for sure, I shall keep to the old WP Admin dashboard and access the post editor from there for the foreseeable future. At least it is stable.
