post gone

  1. i hit save draft and it took me to the login screen and when i logged in it took me to an old version of my post without all that i had just written. is there anyway to get it back?
    Blog url: http://elderlandnc.wordpress.com/

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

    If you created the post in your dashboard here http://elderlandnc.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
