Weird problems resulting in deletion of post….

So I just installed the WordPress app for iPhone. I had trouble connecting to it and was getting and NSXMLParserErrorDomain error 1. From the iPhone app. So I checked out the w3c validator and one post had bad characters. I deleted it and am now posting this from the iPhone.

Happy New Year once again!

    Hey robert, I am sorry. I don’t really have an answer for you, other than, maybe check your older pages with the W3C log? It can be in any section of the website that will probably cause those errors. Hope that helps, let me know if it works.

    so i started to go through older page and specific blogs and found errors…BUT…how do i get to them…editing the page from the backend of wordpress gets me nowhere…and the ftp files aren’t organized anywhere that i can tell…could you lend a hand?

    so i found it. its actually in my comments.php file. i have no clue how much of a power user you are…but the offending statement is this…


    ….do you think you could look through my comments.php file below and suggest how to take it out? or fix this.

    if ($_COOKIE[‘wp-postpass_’ . COOKIEHASH] != $post->post_password) { // and it doesn’t match the cookie
