Short version, since this probably isn’t going to work…
On the WordPress.org forum support site, I have tried repeatedly today to post a new topic. The topic seems to post. It shows up in my Profile page as having posted. Yet if I try to reply to my own post, it says the topic has been closed. And if I log out of my forum account, and browse the forum, I discover my posts are not showing up for the world to see.
I upgraded to 2.8 today, is this the problem?
I really, really need support for a WP issue, and the only place I can get it is by posting to the WP forum, so it’s a big, big problem that I can’t post.
I even tried creating a brand new user account on wordpress.org forums, and the exact same thing happened.
Please help. Or at least let me know if you were able to read this message.
