Why can't I edit a blog post in the "Normal View" after downloading it from the server?


  • I run a self-hosted Wordpress blog, and I use WLW to post most of the time.

    Sometimes I want to edit a Wordpress Page, and I will open WLW, hit the "more" key on previously published posts, find the page, and open it in WLW. However, when I do this I cannot edit the page except in HTML view. In Normal View, I can highlight text and actually click on links to open them in my browser directly (which itself is odd since usually you need to ctrl+click), but I cannot edit at all. Keep in mind that I *can* write new posts using normal view.

    It seems to happen to random posts and I can't explain it. Does anyone else have this problem and no how to fix it?

    FYI: Operating System is XP Pro. Computer is an IBM Thinkpad X31.
