Post not appearing

  1. My post doesn't appear after publishing. I shared a link on facebook and that link leads to an error message. When I log in to wordpress and go to my blog, the post doesn't show up anywhere. I had a backup copy so I published again and the same thing happened. It can't be browser settings because I have used the same computer and browser before to publish posts in wordpress. Some help?

    The blog I need help with is pinkbird711.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi there,
    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/

    In case you need these instructions in the future I'm posting them now.

    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

  3. Thanks for your help. I couldn't retrieve it so I went to "New post" on my dashboard and posted it again. Hope it will not disappear again. :)

  4. Are you directly logging into your own blog?

    Or are you logging in on the front page of WordPress.com?

    Are you creating your posts on the dashboard of your own blog?
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New
    http://pinkbird711.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php

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

  5. I log in directly to my blog and create posts on the dashboard.

  6. That's the best choice. Thanks for answering me. :)
