Blog post content gone
Hi, when I was checking on my site today, the content for some of my blog posts wasn’t there anymore. What happened to my content? and is there anyway you can get it back?
The blog I need help with is jasonhwcheung.wordpress.com.
Read what Staff said here first https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/lost-big-chunk-of-text-missing-from-revisions?replies=13#post-2883911
The Admin login link for that site is
The saved draft posts are found at
The saved draft pages are found at
Staff are working on improving post and page revisions. The most recent 25 revisions are available for posts and pages.
If you cannot restore from your browser, or locate a revision, or restore from Trash then the content has been lost and cannot be recovered.
re: recovering a lost post or page
Please go to https://wordpress.com/post with the same browser and see if it offers to restore a post. If a restore button appears, that means a local copy was saved in your browser and you may be able to recover it.
If the post was created on the dashboard of your own blog at Dashboard > Pages > Add New then you ought to be able to recover a lost post or page from revisions if needed.

Thanks, the first link was a lot of help!
If anyone is wondering, I just had to edit my blog post > Status > revisions and select an older version where all the content wasn’t deleted for some reason.
Hi! I am researching the problem where lost content results in an empty post and hoping you could answer some questions for me:
- Were you editing with the old editor (black toolbar at the top) or the new editor (blue toolbar at the top)?
- Can you confirm what OS and browser version you used?
- Do you remember if you were asked to restore an unsaved draft when you edited the post before the problem occurred?
Thank you for any extra insights you might have about this problem. It has been reported a few times but has proven difficult to repeat in testing.
