Lost Autosave

  1. Hi,

    I was writing for one of my posts and unintentionally I pressed "the back" button without saving my post and the page went the previous page. This happened around 01.27am in our time on 23 February. Then, I pressed forward to have it back. But I can only see the draft taken at 11.15pm on 22 February. Can I restore my post if it is possible?

    The blog I need help with is gerilmesanati.wordpress.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/

    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/

  3. I had already tried the revision thing. Yet, still I cannot see my last autosave. I believe I lost all stuff I wrote. This experience thought me that I will write all my stuff in Word next time.
