    I was working on my blog when suddenly the whole thing just reset, I saved constantly but only have two saves in my history which were an hour before somehow.

    I can’t lose all this work.

    Hi there that is frustrating. Can you let me know which browser you were using at the time, and were you editing the post at My Sites > Posts, or through the WP Admin dashboard at https://tristanjd.wordpress.com/wp-admin/edit.php?

    Hey thanks for getting in contact with me.

    I was using Google Chrome and was editing my blog at My Sites > Drafts.

    Thanks for that info. We’re looking into what’s causing this so we can prevent it from happening again in future.

    Unfortunately it appears the missing content never made it to our servers – if it had it would have been in the revision history for the post. So I’m afraid there’s no way to recover that content.

    The only real fix for this is to Post all your stuff under Private, and constantly update it.

    We are working on finding the cause for this – if we’re able to do that we should be able to fix it and autosave will happen as it should.

    But meanwhile another option is to compose your posts offline in a text editor or using Google Docs, and then only move it to your site for final formatting right before you publish. It’s definitely not how we want you to do this, but should work as a temporary measure until our developers gets this issue fixed.
