Weird occurences in Word Press

I’m a happy user of the open source wordpress software for blogging but there are two issues I have with it.

  1. Posts get published with the created date instead of the final published date
  2. A post that was in my drafts got accidentally deleted without being prompted before continuing.

A big annoyance as I had put in a lot of time into this article.

It seems that I will now have to learn to use external blog editors to handle my writing as the web interface is just too risky.

Has anyone else had these problems?
