Did pressing the ( blue ) hashtag delete my writing?

  1. I was writing a post for a class ( I was in the general forums section. ) ( I also selected ideas )
    I clicked on the blue link for hashtags to get more information , before clicking on the post . Did this delete all of my writing? I navigated back and my words were gone. HELP!!!

    How do I find what I wrote?

    The blog I need help with is felecita2001.wordpress.com.

  2. Hashtags are a Twitter thing. They don't exist on blogs.

    These are technical support forums and the Ideas Forum is for making suggestions to Staff.

    If the post was created on the dashboard of your own blog at Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New then you ought to be able to recover a lost post or page from revisions if needs be.

    See also if applicable > restoring from trash http://en.support.wordpress.com/trash/#restoring-from-trash

    (If you are referring to a page then see here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/page-revisions/)

    But if the post was created here http://wordpress.com/#!/post/ there is no means of recovery as the auto-save is not functioning there.

    Always create your posts on the dashboard of your own blog at
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New
    The auto-save works there and the post will be Standard post format unless you change it.

    Do not create posts here > http://wordpress.com/#!/post/ where the auto-save is not working and where you are creating an Aside post format.

    Use an offline blog editor so you have backups on your own computer http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc/
