I am developing a site using Drupal 6. Sometimes, when I edit and save a node, the author information is lost and the node is unpublished.
- When I edit the node again, even with the user 1 account, I no longer get the node publication controls on the edit form.
- In the content overview admin page, the column for author is empty, not 'anonymous'.
- I can force-publish the node again using bulk operations, but not via the edit node page. I cannot seem to restore the/a author for the node.
I have not yet been able to reproduce this problem consistently: it happens on various node types, only sometimes, regardless of using tinyMCE or filtered HTML for content.
It does seem to happen only on edit, not create. I have not recently enabled or disabled any modules.
Has anyone else experienced something similar? Any idea as to what might be causing this?
