In my previous post, I described the problem I having with the latest Version 3.9, January 30, 2014 release of the WordPress iPhone App.

When I go back to update older posts (in this case edits to the Day 42 / The Nudist War serialized novel), the update gets written to a new URL:

https://contrafactual.com/2013/07/11/hzv-day-42/ vs
https://contrafactual.com/2013/07/10/hzv-day-42/

This means that ALL of my links are now invalid. If you try to read the series you will get

Really annoying 😦

I am sure that Automattic will fix this, but it could be a while.

I have submitted a public question about this at:

I don’t know if this is an iPhone-specific problem or more widespread, but if you edit an older post and the URL changes you now know why.
