My blog revisions from yesterday are not showing up

  1. I know I was online, and I hit the "save draft" button quite a few times, but when I logged on today to check my blog and finish it, it was gone. I spent quite a while on in yesterday, and it's quite frustrating to have all that work gone. The only version I have of it is from two days ago when I just started it a little bit. Please help!

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

    If you created the post in your own dashboard here > http://templesweeper.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php/ 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.

    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:
    1.Create posts and pages on your own blog's dashboard.

    2. When you start a new post, add the title, set it to private and then publish it. When you are done with the post edit it to update it and set it back to publish.

    3. The other choice is to get and use an offline blog client such as Windows Live Writer (Windows) or Ecto (Mac) and then everything is saved on your computer and when you are done with the post, you actually publish it directly from the blog client software. See here for offline blog editors so you don't have to go through this again http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc

    Was the entire post was gone, or just the changes you had made yesterday?

    The only version I have of it is from two days ago when I just started it a little bit. Please help!

    Is the version from two days ago one that you have in your blog dashboard or a copy you had saved somewhere else?
