My most recent post disappeared! Help!

  1. Last week I wrote a post called "To Blog or Be a Blogger". I published and have even received comments. Now my post is mysteriously gone! Well, a piece of it is there. On my admin. page it says the post is just an uncategorized draft. What happened? What do I do? Where is my post?!

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

  2. Can you give the title of the post and one sentence of it precisely? I'm curious what Google has cached.

  3. Was your post called "To Blog or Be a Blogger?"

  4. It WAS there! There is still a comment on it from Brenda! Google has it marked as cached, but the cache has already been flushed.

  5. If it is a draft, you can Publish it.

  6. My admin. page has me down for 1 comment and 4 likes. That sounds right. I don't know what you mean by a flushed cache. Even on my admin. page it is not fully there.

  7. As raincoaster said, if you're seeing it as a draft in Posts > All Posts you can edit it and turn it back to published. If the draft is incomplete, check the Revisions module for previous saved versions. (If you're not seeing the Revisions module while on the post editor screen, click Screen Options to activate it.)
    If there's no complete saved version, you can reconstruct the post from a cached version of your page:
    http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=cache:http://porkchoptuesday.wordpress.com/&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

  8. Hooray! Thank you, all! justpi, I really appreciate your instructions. I didn't even know about the "revisions" button.
    I'm back in business! Thanks a million.

    If you visit my site and don't see a full post with LOTS of pictures, please let me know.

  9. You're welcome!
    The post you linked to is identical to the cached version I linked to, so it seems ok.
    As for "lots of pictures", keep in mind that endless scrolling isn't very user friendly, plus lots of inserted objects on the main page means slower loading time. You should set a smaller number of posts per page in Settings > Reading, and/or use the read-more tag to truncate the posts.

  10. Thanks for the tip.
