Lost blog

  1. Three hours worth of work and went to post it and my Internet connection had gone down and the whole lot was lost....why is their no automatic saving of work as you go along as a draft.????

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

  2. 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/

  3. When working in the Post editor I click on the Save Draft button often

  4. I had one more go and I found a draft that had been saved - it was not easily located, but hey - it was there. So thanks for the help and my blog and pictures were retrieved and posted. I was at my wits end after nearly three hours of editing pictures and compiling a blog.

    Thanks 'auxclass' and 'timethief' for your helpful posts - yes I will click the save drafts button in future to be doubly safe! (BUT it was saved automatically after all)

    It's good to see that you received it. You're welcome.
    P.S. Note my advice above still stands.
