Where can I find my saved drafts ?

  1. Please forgive my Noobieness.
    My tab closed that I was writing my first blog post and now obviously lost everything. I had been saving draft along the way, but now I'm not sure where do find it!

    Any tips/ideas?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is meeshfeeshcapish.com.

    If the post was created on the dashboard of your own blog at Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New then you ought to be able to recover a lost post or page from revisions if needs be.

    (If you are referring to a Page then see here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/page-revisions/)

    But if the post was created here http://wordpress.com/#!/post/ there is no means of recovery as the auto-save is not functioning there.

    Always create your posts on the dashboard of your own blog at
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New
    The auto-save works there and the post will be Standard post format unless you change it.

    Do not create posts here > http://wordpress.com/#!/post/ where the auto-save is not working and where you are creating an Aside post format.

    Use an offline blog editor so you have backups on your own computer http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc/

  3. oh no, the same thing happened to me just now. I wrote a long story and I kept hitting the save button. Why would it give you that option but it doesn't work?
