I don't see any questions in the forums that look like this:
I think I clicked "publish" to publish a post. I didn't see the little red flash that comes up when you press "delete," so I don't THINK that I accidentally hit the delete button. But...it's gone.
This was my second attempt to do the "publish" command. First I thought I clicked "publish" and the post didn't go up. I figured I must have hit "save" by accident, so I clicked "publish" again. And that's when [poof!] the post disappeared. I think.
Tried searching the site for a string I remembered typing into the copy, and nothing came up. I also checked my other blog, just in case I absent-mindedly typed the post at the wrong site...nope.
If I didn't stupidly hit delete, then how did I contrive to disappear the thing? I'll try not to do it again, if someone can clue me to my error.
