Recovering lost "about me"

  1. Is there any way to recover lost "about me" text? I spent a lot of time choosing the correct wording for this and could swear that I saved it, but it's gone now.

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

  2. Hi. I have no idea what you are talking about. Where exactly had you entered the "About me" text? In a widget? On a page? Please be as specific as possible.

    Also, please confirm the URL of the blog you are talking about. Thanks.

  3. Hi Kim, I had the problem of my 'about' button/link disappearing from under my header. Is this the problem that you have? If so, try this:

    Go onto your 'about' page.

    Press edit

    When on it's 'edit page', go over to the right of the screen and in the 'Publish' box you will see the 'Visibility' options.

    If it is set to 'Visibility: Private' that is the problem.

    How to change this: press the word 'edit' in blue and change it to 'public' then press the big blue 'update' button.

    Your 'about' button (which does seem to have disappeared from under your header image on your site) will now appear.

    Alternatively, if your problem is that your 'about' page has been revised and you want to restore it back to a previous version, you will be able to find your last 25 revisions. For more information, look at this page:

    Page revisions on WordPress.com

    If you can't see the 'screen revisions module', then find it by reading this page:

    Find revisions module

    Best of luck!
