now I'm sick

  1. After working for 30 minutes on a new post, I'll reveal that I took you up on your offer to "try your new home page quick post form."

    My stupid Dell touchpad scathed across a link and triggered automatically. When I went back to my work here in Firefox, it was all gone.

    There was no autosave in effect as I was used to.

    My fault, for not responding to the word "quick". And I see the Save Draft option underneath. Yeah, definitely my fault.

    But I felt that this had to be reported. Don't let this happen to you.

    Spelling it out more clearly, I think the Quick Post should use autosave also, thanks.

  2. Staff are aware of the issue and it will be addressed in the next updated version of WordPress.

    Advice:
    Create your posts on the dashboard of your own blog
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New
    Do not create them here > http://wordpress.com/#!/post/

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

    You may be able to recover a 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
