    I had written my blog – a long one – and was just starting to add a couple of photos at the bottom. It kept placing them at the top, so I was adjusting it. All of a sudden one of my images comes up in the web page, so I click back to return to my blog and it takes me to the home page.
    Went onto drafts, as it autosaves every minute or so, and there are no drafts!
    I’m unhappy as it took my ages to write and it’s not going to be the same as when I first wrote it :o(

    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.

    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!/post/
