Autosave crash ate my post

  1. Autosave got stuck and my post disappeared. I'd been finishing the final edit after hours of work and it disappeared. Is it gone for good, or is there a way to retrieve it?

    The blog I need help with is unconfirmedbachelorette.com.

  2. You may be able to recover an earlier post revision. Go to Posts > All Posts, hover over the title of the post, click Edit and check the Post Revisions module for previous saved versions of the post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-revisions/

    If you're not seeing the Revisions module while on the editor screen, click Screen Options (top right corner of your Admin page) http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/ to activate it. Then select the post and page modules to include them. http://en.support.wordpress.com/modules/#list-of-modules Then you ought to be able to go here > Dashboard > All Posts > Posts and locate the post and recover it from post revisions.

    If you cannot locate the post for locating and restoring a post revision, and it's not in your Trash folder http://en.support.wordpress.com/trash/ then you will not be able to recover it. http://en.support.wordpress.com/trash/#restoring-from-trash

    Did you create your post on the dashboard of your own blog?
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New

    Or did you create your post on the front page of WordPress.com?
    http://wordpress.com/#!/post/

    P.S. Do not log-in on the front page of WordPress.com. Do not create posts here > http://wordpress.com/#!/post/

    Instead I recommend that you ONLY log-in directly you your own blog and ONLY create posts and edit them here > Dashboard > Posts > Add New

  3. Damn. I see no version of it at all. And I created it from WordPress.com. Lesson learned.

    Thanks for your help!
