recent post disappeared

  1. My most recent post has disappeared (along with the comments) and when I click on the link in my dashboard it says "404 file not found". I checked in my drafts and an earlier draft is there but with out the photos or formatting, two comments, but none of the most recent.

    Any suggestions?

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

  2. Check your "trash".

  3. Checked that and clicked "restore" but it was an older draft, without critical changes I made before it was posted, and without the comments or photos.

    Any idea what happened? The final version seems to have just disappeared into the ether.

  4. Do you have a back button on your browser?
    Have you checked Google's cache?

  5. Checked but no luck. I found a copy by going to the dashboard comments, clicking on the the most recent which had the final text of the post, then cutting and pasting into a new post. I then had to re-add the photos. Seems to have worked but do you have any idea how this happened so I won't do it again.

  6. I'm glad to hear you found the autosaved version.
    Happy blogging :)
