Missing edits

  1. Hi there,

    I've been working on a post for some time and have made several edits over the past 3 days. Within this past hour, my browser crashed, and when reopening, the prior pages were not able to be restored in Google Chrome. When I logged back into WordPress, my draft was only as current as 3 days ago, because most of my updates had been done. I wish to see if there's a possibility to restore (there is none in the Revisions section, only as recent as 3 days ago). Please advise, thank you.

    The blog I need help with is comesconewithme.com.

  2. Did you create the post here http://wordpress.com/#!/post/ where the auto-save does not work?

    WordPress.com has an autosave feature and 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

    Advice:
    Create your posts on the dashboard of your own blog where the auto-save works
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New

    Or use an offline blog editor so you always have backups on your own computer http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc/

  3. Thanks for checking. No, I did not use the first option. And sadly, my revisions from the past three days, that I had been actually pressing 'save' on, are not seen.
