I decided to go all cryptopunk and start a blog via Tor. I thought using WordPress was practically traditional. However, when I try to save a draft or make a post, the button is pressed but the whirler keeps whirling forever, and the post never gets saved/made. I tried posting to the support forum, but the content of that post was lost.

Is there any way to post to WordPress.com using Tor?

I have tried Tumblr, Diaspora, etc, and I can post there. However, I would prefer to use WordPress.com

Tor Browser has some JavaScript disabled by default. Go into options for the NoScript plugin and add WordPress.com to your Whitelist and that should do the trick.

Firstly, try clearing all cache and cookies of your present browser and retry. Else, install Opera and enable turbo mode while browsing. This should get WordPress to work fine again.

my browser is the Tor browser (i.e. modified Firefox) - is there a version of Opera that uses Tor? – Curious Borges Apr 22 '13 at 10:44
I think this one is it operator.en.softonic.com – Karan Raj Baruah Apr 22 '13 at 10:52
This isn't officially supported by The Tor Project and should not be considered safe. It also hasn't been updated since 2010. – Andrew Lott Feb 2 '15 at 10:32
