Where is my blog post

  1. I posted a blog around noon CST. It was there until about an hour ago. It has disappeared and there is no draft. What happened!?!

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

  2. There is a problem going around with missing posts. For the meantime I suggest:

    1) checking your Trash file to see if it's there and can be restored.

    2) using an offline blog editor like Windows Live Writer

    3) never, ever using the New Post button on the Admin bar or the central WP.com page, the one that has tabs for your stats, freshly pressed, the reader, etc. It frequently loses posts, and does not activate the autosave, although it appears to. I always make my posts from Dashboard->New Post.

  3. Please be sure you are running one of the browser versions here http://browsehappy.com first.

    You may be able to recover an earlier post revision. Go to Posts > All Posts, hover over the title of the post, click Edit and check the Post Revisions module for previous saved versions of the post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-revisions/

    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 Posts > Posts and locate the post and recover it from post revisions.

    If you cannot locate the post for locating and restoring a post 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

    Did you create your post on the dashboard of your own blog?
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New

    Or did you create your post on the front page of WordPress.com?
    http://wordpress.com/#!/post/

    Advice:
    Create your posts on the dashboard of your own blog
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New

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