Description

On my blog at http://cpp-next.com, I find that once anything (post, page, or comment) is published, the preview button in the editor just shows me the post as already published.

  • Severity changed from major to normal

That's normal behaviour.

You won't see the changes until you save the post.

Perhaps the button text should be replaced with "Show post" instead of "Preview" to avoid confusion.

  • Milestone changed from Unassigned to 2.9
  • Summary changed from Can't preview changes to anything published. to Preview button is misleading for published content

#10828 dupes this.

I thought preview on a published post was supposed to trigger autosave and show the autosave version.

Replying to ryan:

It does on my 2.8.4 test install here.

I wonder if the reporter is clicking on the View Post link instead of the Preview Changes link?

Previewing pre-existing pages breaks at r19461 http://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/11817 in my tests.

It works fine for me on current 2.9-rare/trunk as well

As reported in #10828, this happens only on pages for me. Posts are fine.

Not seeing any errors in the console. Tried reverting 11817 but the problem persisted.
