Lost Edited Words

  1. I was writing in my dashboard editing Romance is in the Aira 3012 and poof my additional writing was gone into thin air. It went from about 790 words to over 1200 words and I was trying to cut it in half to make two posts from it. Can you recover the additional words? I tried to save them in my files without success and I sent it to me by email but all I got was the first 790 word
    version. Help Please. cindy birdwise

    The blog I need help with is cindysbookends.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?

  3. Thank you for responding so quickly and with lots of ideas.

    I think I was editing my post on dashboard in my own blog, but I am new at this and feeling lost. I will check this out in the morning when my brain is able to function. I have traumatic brain injury which makes me tired easily from using it at all.
    Thank you for giving me some great advice.
