My saved draft is blank

  1. I worked on a new post for my bolg for an hour, adding text, pictures, links, etc. I gave it a title (February, a month of carnaval, love and celebration) and clicked the Save Draft button on the right. I went to Preview, and only my title came up, the rest is blank. Checking under all my posts, again only the title is there. What happened to all my content??

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

  2. Please be sure you are running one of the browser versions here http://browsehappy.com first.

    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

    Did you create your post on the dashboard of your own blog?
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New

    Or did you create your post on the front page of WordPress.com?
    http://wordpress.com/#!/post/

    Advice:
    Create your posts on the dashboard of your own blog
    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. timethief: thx for replying but no success.
    Browser up to date
    I posted as such, Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New
    I did the 'Save Draft'
    On the post it says it was edited by me at 1:36pm but has a word count of 0.
    I don't know..very frustrating to start all over again.

  4. I'm so sorry this happened to you. :(
