Two entries disappeared

  1. Yesterday two entries in my blog have been published, but then disappeared.
    My blog is - http://misteli.wordpress.com/
    Entries: http://misteli.wordpress.com/2012/07/21/2-md/ and http://misteli.wordpress.com/2012/07/21/3-md/ (displays draft of another entry)
    Is it possible to restore them?
    Blog url: http://misteli.wordpress.com/

  2. Yes, you can restore (Autosaves) posts from and earlier state. First, while on the "Edit Post" screen scroll down to the Save Log. Then, click the autosave (or save) you want to restore. Then chane the buttons in the left colum to reflect your changes (Post you want = New) (Post Below = Old)

    Feel free to ask me any WordPress question!

    There is along standing issue that Staff are aware of. You may be able to recover an earlier Page Revision. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/page-revisions/ Go to Pages > All Pages, hover over the title of the page, click Edit and check the Page Revisions module for previous saved versions of the page.

    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 Pages > Pages and locate the page and recover it from page revisions.

    If you cannot locate the page by using the instructions I provided for locating and restoring a page 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

    Advice:
    When you start a new post or page, add the title, set it to private and then publish it. When you are done, set it back to publish and update it. Another option is to get and use an offline blog client such as Windows Live Writer (Windows) or Ecto (Mac) and then everything is saved on your computer and when you are done with the post, you actually publish it directly from the blog client software. See here for offline blog editors so you don't have to go through this again http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc

    Any member can answer forum questions here but what you posted made me laugh out loud. That kind of bragging that impinges on leaving a signature link drop at the end of every comment you post and will not cut it here. Be aware that the regular Volunteers here who have provided support here for between 4 and 6 1/2 years are very experienced with both WordPress.com and WordPress.org software but none of us are horn blowers. If you wish to blow your own horn please do that in the Showcase Forum -- not in support forum threads.
