Brandon, sometimes you'll see that error but the post is actually created.  I currently see a published post from today (succeeding in 2021) and almost an identical title post in DRAFT that is just a photo.

You have to check those boxes before it will post. ARMS said it is now there so hopefully you are all set.

Did you pick the category?  If you did, then it might be a glitch in the system as they're working on rebuilding the whole site Brandon.

This is not the first instance where we have heard of an "Error" message and the blog post is successful anyway.

Active Rain poobahs are aware and working on the solution to the problem

I figured out what the problem was. The boxes that are required at the bottom of the post were not appearing. The scroll bar was not showing up in the editor that you type the blog into so it was difficult to find the required checkboxes. However, after people kept saying that I clicked on the editor and used the down arrow on the keyboard and was able to find the check boxes. 

 

Seems like it would work better if the blog post page was full screen. It appears that some of the navigation widgest are clipping off the editor.
