Need help? Check out our Support site, then


Posts and Photos are gone.

  1. All my posts and photos are gone. I cannot figure out what happened.

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

  2. I can see several static pages on that site. Are the posts visible on the dashboard? Are they set as Draft? Are the images still in the Media Library?

  3. I can see the static pages that raincoaster sees. On your front page I see this:

    Nothing Found
    Apologies, but no results were found. Perhaps searching will help find a related post.

    Do your know the differences between posts and pages? And did you know that as soon as you publish a post not a page the error message will be gone? http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

  4. If you did create posts and not just pages then if and only if the post was created on the dashboard of your own blog at Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New then you ought to be able to recover a lost post or page from revisions if needs be.

    See also if applicable > restoring from trash http://en.support.wordpress.com/trash/#restoring-from-trash

    (If you are referring to a page then see here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/page-revisions/)

    But if the post was created here http://wordpress.com/#!/post/ there is no means of recovery as the auto-save is not functioning there.

    Always create your posts on the dashboard of your own blog at
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New
    The auto-save works there and the post will be Standard post format unless you change it.

    Do not create posts here > http://wordpress.com/#!/post/ where the auto-save is not working and where you are creating an Aside post format.

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

  5. Thank you everyone! I'm still stumped, but maybe this will help:

    Yes, it is a website with pages. What is now showing as the Home page, was not there when I completed the site. I added my posts and changed it to the last page of the site.

    I created 2 posts for the last page. I wrote them a few weeks ago, published them then, but they are now gone. When I go to the Posts section of the Dashboard, there are no posts.

    I set a primary image for each of the pages, and now each of them is gone as well.

    I have a testimonials page with pictures and quotes from customers. They are all gone except 2 pictures with captions.

    I completed the site for a final school project, and it was perfect when I showed it to my professor a few weeks ago. Everything worked beautifully in the classroom.

    I'm so confused!

  6. I hate to seem like an idiot, but I cannot find the trash either. When I choose Posts from my Dashboard, my options are:

    All Posts
    Add New
    Categories
    Tags
    Copy a Post

  7. I'm so sorry this thread fell between the cracks. I'll tag this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

  8. On what blog do you exactly encounter this issue? Could you please send a link of that?
