Posts Automatically Reverting To Previous Revision Upon Posting

Reported by: smcorridorews Owned by:
Milestone: Awaiting Review Priority: normal
Severity: major Version: 5.3.2
Component: Revisions Keywords: close
Focuses: Cc:


We have been experiencing an issue lately, and we are not certain if it is a theme or a WordPress issue.

Our editors have made changes to a previously saved draft, gone through the previewing the draft process and everything and then publishing the post with it having all of the changes they just made.

After it's published, the post is found to have reverted back to the version before the latest changes were made.

For example, say there are already two versions of a post-draft when changes are made to it, and it is published.

Immediately after it is published, the post has reverted back to version two, and all of the changes made to it for what would have been "revision three" are gone.

Any thoughts?
