Blog resetting itself.

  1. Look, this has happened to me a few times now, and my blog is a week old. My blog seems to have reset itself to the last theme I used, and my two new posts no longer exist. I have put a lot of hard work into the posts I make, and now they are gone - however, I can still see them on my homepage (where the blogs I follow appear), and I'm still receiving likes, so I have to assume that they still exist. Also, on my dashboard, it says my blog is running the wrong theme, and that I only have one post.

    The blog I need help with is runsparklerun.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi Jen - I'm sorry about this! You actually had duplicate blogs, two with the exact same URL, which explains what you were seeing. This is a bug we're currently looking into. I have removed the empty duplicate blog, so this won't be a problem for you anymore. Are you missing any posts now?

    The same is happening for me. I just started my blog on Sunday and its rest itself to old themes 3 times now. It seems to happen mostly in the evening hours (7 pm and beyond EST). Sunday I wrote part of a draft and Monday morning it was gone. I rewrote it and worked on my design most of Monday and by evening it too was gone, but my draft version was back. By Tuesday a.m. It was back to normal however (posts were up as usual). I really don't want this to be a recurring issue. Help, please? My site is rurallyspeaking.wordpress.com.

  4. Ok, this should be fixed for you now, @rurallyspeaking. Sorry for the trouble!

    Thanks so much! It all looks normal! Is there anything I can do should it happen again?

    I appreciate you! :)

  6. It won't happen again. This is a bug right now where when some people create a new blog, it creates two duplicate blogs. It shouldn't be happening and we're working on fixing the problem, but once staff deletes the duplicate blog that shouldn't be there, then that's a permanent fix for that particular blogger.
