    I made a lengthy blog post yesterday at approximately 4.00pm Australian time - it appeared on my blog page and was published successfully - as i could see the post on both my browser and also my phone. Today, when i went to show my lecturer this post, it had disappeared and was not even present in my drafts folder, despite the hours that i spent working on the post yesterday.

    Can you please help me recover and publish this post to my blog?

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

  3. did you ever find an answer to this? The same thing happened to me!

  4. You may be able to recover a 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/

    Advice:
    Create your posts on the dashboard of your own blog
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New

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