    I was working on a blog last night, I know it was autosaving as I was going along. I hit the "save draft" button when I was done working on it. I did not publish yet so I could finish it up today. When I went to the draft of it, there was nothing there but the title. HELP!! is there anyway to recover what I had worked on?

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

  2. This happened to me too yesterday! Have not been able to recover it yet.

    Me too, on 6th December, never before in 3m. A glitch in the matrix?

  4. 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?
