Description (last modified by dd32)

While editing a "Page" on my blog I noticed that the "Save" button was missing. In order to save I have to wait for the autosave to do it then do a restore.

---

Update: It appears that the Publish box was in the 2nd column, whilst the user was still using a 1-column setup.

Change History (9)

Theres a blue "Update" button on the right hand side in the "Publish" widget.. Unless for some reason you've hidden that box or rolled it up (If you can see a gray "Publish" bar, try clicking that)

Failing that, Screen shot?

The publish module is missing. How can I restore it?
Screen Options has the following:
---
Show on screen
(*)Raw HTML (*)Attributes (*)Custom Fields (*)Discussion (*)Page Slug (*)Page Author
Screen Layout
Number of Columns: ()1 ()2

The Publish box cannot be hidden via screen options for that exact reason, its a required function.

Are you absolutely sure there is not "Publish" grey(or blue?) bar on the screen?

If you could make a screen shot that would help a lot.

I found the problem.

Before the recent upgrade I had moved the "Publish" module under the edit pane and set screen to 1 column. After recent upgrade the setting where the publish module lived was forgotten but it remembered to use only 1 column. The publish module was in the column that was not displayed. Once I set 2 columns I saw the publish module, moved it back to under the edit pane, then reset back to 1 column again.

This looks like a problem where the upgrade lost the position settings for the modules.

Once I set 2 columns I saw the publish module, moved it back to under the edit pane, then reset back to 1 column again.

That was my next thought.

Should probably check to see if theres any code to reset boxes from 2nd column to the 1st column in the event that something changes.

When having two columns, if you change to one column, publish goes at the end of the column.

Tested in two different sites, with 2.9.1 and 2.9.2.

If I change into 2 colums, move publish to the right column, and change again to 1 column, it goes again to the end of the central column.

Tested.
