1.4 Cannot Add new posts from Dashboard

After upgraded to 1.4:

I cannot create new posts in my blog from the dashboard because of the dropdown list "ADD TO" in "New post" window. It shows always "(none)" but I´m pretty sure I have created my blog. 

It looks that something goes wrong where populating the dropdown list of available blogs.

Anyway it lets you save the post, (i think It shouldn´t) but in which Blog?

Well in [Common_BodyPartRecord] table saves a record that points to [Common_CommonPartRecord] and there, the property  [Container_Id] is NULL, so the post is "orphan" in the universe.

By the other hand, from Live Writer everything is Ok.

May anyone help me?

Am I doing something wrong in order to get a empty dropdown list of available blogs when creating new posts?

(Everything was migrated to 1.4 even blogs and posts.. Now I can see Autoroute parts inside.)

Thanks in advance! :)

It seems you hacked the BlogPost content type by adding a Containable part to it, which is not required, and maybe not supported.

A BlogPost is internally containable by a Blog content item. Or maybe you marked BlogPost as Creatable, which might trigger this UI. Again please try to remove this.

Clearly not supported. This is sure to mess things up.

You both are TOTALLY RIGHT.

Next time I´ll keep my hands out :(

Thank you! ( and sorry,  one more time )
