I'm a daily blogger and had an entire post in the schedule for December 1st (today) and last night before I went to bed I wanted to give it one last check for possible spelling errors etc.
I have my post open in the editor and can see my photos, text just fine. I correct two small typos and decide to reword one sentence , and then pressed "update".
The computer thinks for a second, refreshes the page and everything has disappeared!!! No title, text or photos!
There's a message in red at the top that there's a more recent copy in my autosave (but it tells lies, all of those pages are blank)
Luckily my next step was to hit the "back" button and et Voila my text and photos are there!
Knowing from past experience that very I'm lucky to see it again, I immediately do a copy/paste and save it into Open Office Word doc. Cool, I have my text saved and my photos can be reinserted, so I'm taking a deep breath and trying to stay calm...
Ok... so last night I'm repeatedly trying to post my text back into the blank editor, every time I hit the "update"button it's gone again.
Rather than throw the laptop out the window in frustration I decide to try again this morning... maybe when the scheduled post becomes a published post all will be well... good thought, but wrong :(
My "posts'page should have the word "published"under today's date, instead it says " 11 hours ago" (time from when it was published) and underneath... in red letters "missed schedule".
My main page only shows yesterdays post, not even a blank page from today's.
I have cleared my cache and rebooted my computer .. still can't update a post without loosing everything. NOW I'm getting worried.
ANY and all help would be vastly appreciated, currently this is the first day I've missed posting in over 3 years of blogging... and it seems like it's totally out of my control.
PLEASE, is there anything I can do to get normal transmission back as soon as possible?
Many Thanks in advance...
p.s. I saved screen shots of each stage of the problem but don't know how to get that information into this post.
