    When a "contributor" hits "Submit for review", the message "Post saved" is shown, but the post is not saved and is not available in the list of posts in Manage>Posts

    Looks like it may be a bug with regular wordpress actually.

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/136002

    May want to submit a trac ticket over at http://trac.wordpress.org Do NOT mention that this is for wpmu as it will get closed without review. Do point to the thread i link to and include the information mentioned in the readme file about debugging. (I point you to that specifically since it appears you may have missed it wehen you wrote the post up above. That may be why you didn't get any real answer since you didn't give us a whole lot to go on.)

    the 5329 ticket led me to http://trac.wordpress.org/changeset/6333

    I made that change but it is not working out for me...

    eventually i've figured out what the problem was...
    the datatype of post_status is enum...
    and the values part of it does not include...
    i ran the following global plugin to make the change...
    so just copy-paste the code below:
    <?
    $wpdb->query(" ALTER TABLE ".$wpdb->posts." CHANGE post_status post_status ENUM( 'publish', 'pending', 'draft', 'private', 'static', 'object', 'attachment', 'inherit', 'future' ) CHARACTER SET latin1 COLLATE latin1_swedish_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'publish'");
    ?>
    The only problem with this is you need to open each blog once to implement this before u remove it. Since I have only a few blogs, I did not care to loop it over all blogs so it can be done in one call, but if you have too many blogs, consider looping this...
    So, just run it and then enjoy...and then remove it from muplugins

    Hi,

    I upgraded my blog to 2.5.1 today. I still see the problem where the post disappears if a contributor hits the "submit for review" button.

    Was this a known issue that was fixed in 2.5.1?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you're using 2.5.1, you're using regular wordpress, not the multipleuser version that we work with here, and are at the wrong site:

    http://wordpress.org/support

    Thanks for pointing me to the correct site.

    I still don't understand how people get here when searching for regular wordpress support issues.

    I'll second that motion, Suleiman.

    I still don't understand how people get here when searching for regular wordpress support issues.

    I'll venture a wild guess or four:

    1) the sites look nearly identical
    2) lots of links are posted and cross-posted to both sites
    3) there is a ton of misinformation in any forum, and that includes both the regular and mu forums, thus making the general route to finding an answer to any support question very confusing
    4) regular and mu are very similar products in many respects, so support issues pertinent to one are pertinent to the other, making both places seem like the right place to post.

    re point #1 - not anymore. the regular forums have been revamped drastically.

    Also, I don't get it either. Near as I can tell, when I'm hunting on the regular wp side, I can't see *anything* pointing here.
    then again it depends on how people are getting here - codex or google searches? because that would explain it.
