Publishing issues - drafts disappearing

  1. I've published and saved as drafts on 2 different blogs, when I go into my live site neither blog is there, but a third one I did the same day is. How I can find these drafts of these posts so I can publish them.

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

  2. Something to mention that one of my subscribers actually got an email with 1 of the posts that "disappeared" but yet you could not see the post on the site.

  3. I had this same issue! My draft is gone :(

  4. 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/

  5. the information you provide is helpful, if there was a post to check the revisions on. But unfortunately that is the problem, the posts just disappear. This has happened on several occasions and is really annoying, especially when I try to be very careful to save as drafts many times while I'm writing.

    Like I mentioned, I know at least one of the posts was published for a brief time as someone got an email, but there wasn't even any link to it on my post.
