Why do my blogs go missing?

  1. I keep losing my blogs that have already been published since yesterday! Just now I even had a link posted in my Facebook account about a certain blog but when you click on that link, it shows a different blog. What is wrong with WordPress??? I didn't move my blog and I have not even cleared my cookies and cache yet this keeps happening!

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

  2. Do you mean blog POST? If so, give us a link to it. Is it visible on your Dashboard Posts page?

  3. Yeah, blog posts. It was not in my Dashboard posts page when I checked it. But since I also received the alert in my Yahoo mail about that blog post, I got to copy the whole thing and posted it again. So everything's fine now. But this isn't the first time this has happened. Since last night I kept losing some blog posts and just kept re-posting them. Any idea why?

  4. May I suggest you bookmark what I post below?

    If this happens again we have an autosave feature and 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/

  5. Ive had this happen as well. Posted a blogpost and 3 minutes later, its like its been eaten by wordpress, with no trace. No draft, not in trash, just gone.
