Why do blog posts I publish keep disappearing

  1. Blog posts keep disappearing. I post a blog and then a few days later, it's gone.

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

  2. I don't know. What is the URL of one of these disappearing posts please?

  3. I see these posts:

    Recent Posts

    Yoga Is For Everyone
    2014 ā€“ To Infinity and Beyond
    Tulips
    2013 ā€“ The Year of Yes that Really IS My Neck
    Iā€™m Back

    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.

    See also if applicable > restoring from trash http://en.support.wordpress.com/trash/#restoring-from-trash

    (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/

  5. Hi there,

    Sorry about that! There was a glitch with your blog, but I've fixed it up. I noticed that you had a couple duplicate posts so I went ahead and set the duplicates as draft posts. You can take a look at those under Posts > All Posts in your dashboard.

    Please let me know if I can provide any further help with this. :)

  6. Thank you so much, rachelmcr!
