LOST TEXT

  1. Hey, this just happened to me twice in the last 20 minutes. The text of my post was completely erased after I had saved the draft. The title / tags / everything else remains as is, but the actual blog entry is completely gone. I thought it was my fault the first time, but since it happened twice, on the same post, I'm curious as to why that would happen.

    If it matters, I was using a very recently updated version of Firefox. Thank you!

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

  2. No, it's WP's fault: keeps being reported ever since the latest major updates.
    Check the Revisions module for a previously saved version. If you're not seeing the Revisions module while on the post editor screen, click Screen Options (top right) to activate it.
    For future posts better avoid using drafts: write a couple of lines, turn the visibility to private and publish the post, keep editing and updating, turn to public when finished.

  3. Hi the same thing just happened to me. I thought there were ghosts in the house and published a post about it
    http://wp.me/pN0M1-18l
    One of my readers brought me here.
    Thank you for your advice. I've never seen a revisions module - will go look for it now.
    If you write the post as a private one why doesn't it disappear?
