lost content

  1. I typed up 2 sections of my blog yesterday but where are they now? My blog is kind of long so I started some categories but when I click on the category in the sidebar it doesn't respond. Should I delete and start over?

    The blog I need help with is kristy4214blog.com.

  2. 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/

  3. @kristy4214, I see 4 posts in draft in your dashboard at Posts > All Posts. If those are the posts you are talking about, they will not appear to the public until you publish them. They are all in the Uncategorized category and one has a tag of "traveling" on it.

    Thanks for the assist. I overlooked the most obvious thing ... sheesh.

  5. NP @timethief. It's always a team effort. You've caught stuff I've missed. :)
