I've been trying to create a new post for quite some time, but somehow the save button is missing. This is my hubpress blog repository: https://github.com/chackomathew/blog

Hi @chackomathew, @patrikwm

The minimum requirement to save or publish a post is a title.
Could you try with this content:

= My title

My bad, I didn't read FAQs before raising an issue. I agree with header validation, but better user experience?

We've improved the first post experience in 0.7.0 by adding in some template info which you can uncomment and use.

I agree that some better validation would be helpful, or maybe even a link to the troubleshooting article on the knowledgebase.

How do you think we could improve this for users @chackomathew ?

Update now and give it a go.
