Missing Posts?

  1. I'm seeing posts disappear.

    They're just gone. Anyone else encountering this annoying problem?

  2. Yes, I just posted and it comes and goes, it's there but not showing on the main page, sometimes not even in the categories...

  3. Please post the following for staff:
    - your browser
    - your browser version
    - your FULL blog address (not the name, the real address that begins http:// )
    - your FULL username
    - your REAL email address that is registered here
    - and a very good description of the exact problem.

  4. same here. two posts are gone!
    IE7, mymodemsux2.wordpress.com
    that's it.

    nice try phishing timethief.

  5. Firefox 2.0.0.8
    navalha.wordpress.com

  6. Elsewhere on the forum in other threads Mark posted this:
    Staff needs to know
    - your browser
    - your browser version
    - your FULL blog address (not the name, the real address that begins http:// )
    - your FULL username
    - your REAL email address that is registered here
    - and a very good description of the exact problem

    During support hours (9-5 PM weekdays) you can use this link http://wordpress.com/contact-support/ or the support link on your dashboard side right hand corner of any blog page. On weekends staff do monitor these forum threads and you can post information here. Be sure to munge your email address to elude spam bots like this support [at] wordpress [dot] com

  7. The good news is that you can download an offline blog editor and use it so you don't continue to lose your posts because you will always have back-up copies of your posts.

  8. My readers are getting this error message:

    Easy, tiger. This is a 404 page.
    You are totally in the wrong place.

    Do not pass GO; do not collect $200.

    Instead, hit that "back" button on your browser, and get it right next time, eh?

  9. Refreshing the page seems to work either.

  10. I just put another post up to see if it would appear and it vanished.

    I'd hate to think WordPress is censoring posts critical of Bush? That would be terribly Soviet.

  11. @fromtheleft
    Wordpress is certainly not censoring your posts. Please find something else to do while staff are fixing this. During that time you can download and use a free off-line blog editor so you do not keep losing posts.

  12. Criticise Bush all you want :)

    I'll ask that this be looked at.

  13. @timethief
    Don't worry about me. Take care of your own house.

  14. I seem to have the same problem with disappearing pages (AGAIN ...)

    I just wrote new pages (No. 672 und 677) ... they turned up first as "published", but do NOT now after SECOND saving. They seem to just come and go. (FIREFOX, brand new version)

    Worry about you - surely you jest ... lol. :D Now you and everyone else posting to this thread know know what to do to preserve your data. You can download and use an offline blog editor and keep on blogging or you can keep losing posts; the choice is yours.

  16. Sorry - we fixed the cause of this.

  17. I did a post yesterday. Today it's gone. And the comments.

    WTF?

  18. @chartreuse
