Lost really important blog draft!!

  1. Hi, I recently changed the name of my blog from hannahmison to hannahisonphoto and then proceeded to write a really long, important blog post. It said it was saving as a draft along the way but then when I clicked post it was still in the "hannahmison" one so it didn't save and said the blog no longer existed. Is there any way to retrieve that draft? It's extremely important!
    Thanks

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

  2. If you created that post using the "Add New" on the main page for WordPress.com here http://wordpress.com/#!/post/ then the draft post may be lost and may not be recoverable.

    If you created the post in your dashboard here > Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New then 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

  3. I don't think you understood my question.

    I was posting it under a different user name and now don't have access to that because it was deleted but I was wondering if its stored anywhere in the system or if whoever runs WordPress has access to deleted usernames.

  4. Deleted usernames are a huge problem. I have flagged this for staff attention, but don't get your hopes up.

  5. i did not deleted , but i changed it to be able to look at the site and be able to see the blogs .At this time im just trying to see how to add my own domain that i bougth for a year 'www.hothookups.com', since i was not able to get the view of my site, i put it back into 'www.hothookups.wordpress.com'

  6. Deleted usernames can't be restored. This page shows all your posts and drafts.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.
