an entire post disappears after publishing??

    hi

    I composed a new post, saved as draft, went to the dashboard, edited it a little bit and published. Nothing unusual so far – but a few hours later I checked my blog and the post was empty! The title is there – but no text!
    Went back to the edit page – also empty.
    Checked out previous revisions – only two and both have no text in them. I can see the different titles I put while editing (I changed the title after the edit) but there is nothing in there…
    How could this happen??
    Is there a way to retrieve the lost text? I edited it just a few hours ago, and it was all there!
    Please, help!

    israelimaterial.wordpress.com is no longer available.
    The authors have deleted this site.

    Which blog is the lost in?

    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.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-revisions/
    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/)

    If you cannot find the post/page in revisions or in Trash then it’s gone and cannot be recovered.

    I recommend:
    Always create your posts on the dashboard of your own blog at
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New

    Always allow pages to fully load before clicking any other links.

    Never leave a post open for content creation or editing and walk away from it. Save it and log out of WordPress.com properly.

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

    you can check in revision post. it was also happen with me. So all post saves in auto draft you can check. just open the post in editor and find the revision word writen there and restore done. Get more thing that you may like thanx

    hi, timethief, thanks for the quick reply.
    the blog name is frenchmaterial.wordpress.com.
    like I said , I couldn’t find it in the trash and the two previous revisions I can see are empty, even though I can see the correct history of the title changing with the revisions.
    The fact that there are only two revisions is quite strange – I’m used to seeing “25+ revisions” in the dashboard editor for most of my posts, I guess because of all the auto-saves that occur while I’m writing. So how come only two revisions?
    I’m about to give up, but before I do – do you have any other idea about saving my post?

    Maybe your blog is caught up in the duplicate blogs issue. I’ll tag this thread for a Staff follow-up. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

    Could you please send me the link of the post you are referring to? also, do you encounter this issue with every post you save?

    Do you also encounter this issue in a different browser? for example Firefox or Safari?

    Hi kardotim,

    This is a private, password protected post, can I send you the link + password via private message?

    All you’ll get is an empty post, so I don’t know if it’ll help you, but I don’t mind sending it via PM.

    It’s the 1st time such a thing has ever happened to me after more than 600 posts.

    I tried it on google chrome and safari and it’s empty on both.

    thanks,

    ith

    Is it the post without a title? otherwise just let me know the post title and I’ll check it out.

    #1881706

    it’s the post titled “2:32 AM”.

    the slug is 233-am-2.

    Thanks so much!

    I see what you mean. The post is completely empty and the post revisions don’t contain any content. Did this only happen with one post? or multiple ones? Do you also encounter this issue in a different browser? for example Firefox or Safari?

    At this point there is not much we can do or explain why this happened. I can only recommend to use the ‘Save Draft’ button occasionally while writing a post or try a different browser to see if that helps.

    Hi,

    Yes, it’s the only time this ever happened, and it’s the same in both chrome and safari.
    I stopped writing new posts with the “new post” button on the main screen, since I understand that the auto-save doesn’t really work, even though it appears to work.
    I’m using the “add new” from the dashboard, I hope it’ll never happen again…
    What is the “duplicate blogs issue” that timethief mentioned in her reply? Could this help?
    thanks,
    fm

    I’m glad you don’t encounter the issue on the blog’s dashboard.

    The duplicate blogs issue does not apply to your issue. We’ll keep an eye on further reports about draft saving problems at https://wordpress.com/post/

    Thank you! Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
