As others have, I lost a post

    Searching the forum, it seems that losing posts is a frequent occurrence especially for newbie users. I’m a newbie to blogging and guess what? I, too, lost a post that I had been working on for 1 1/2 hours. Really unacceptable for software in the 21st century. Damn, autosave has been around since the 1980’s and you’d think any document development tool would have a robust version of that feature today. I really didn’t do much review of different blogging sites. Perhaps I should go back and do that. . ,



    There’s an issue with creating posts on the front page of that will not be fixed until the next upgrade. Do not create posts here >!/post/

    Instead I recommend that you ONLY create posts here > Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New

    If you created that posts using the “Add New” on the main page for here!/post/ then what you describe can happen and worse still the draft posts may be lost and may not be recoverable.

    If you created the post in your dashboard here > Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New then 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.

    If you’re not seeing the Revisions module while on the editor screen, click Screen Options (top right corner of your Admin page) to activate it. Then select the post and page modules to include them. 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 then you will not be able to recover it.
