Can you help me recover the lost text?
I accidentally undid a series of edits that I typed through my phone. The WordPress took me to a side by side preview, and I clicked to marry the two versions without realizing that I would lose the new text (as the computer was overwriting what I had typed from my phone with the older version from my computer). Is there any way to recover the lost text?
The blog I need help with is rpmcdonaldwriting.wordpress.com.
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. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-revisions/
If you’re not seeing the Revisions module while on the editor screen, click Screen Options (top right corner of your Admin page) http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/ to activate it. Then select the post and page modules to include them. http://en.support.wordpress.com/modules/#list-of-modules 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 and restore a post revision, and it’s not in your Trash folder http://en.support.wordpress.com/trash/ then you will not be able to recover it. http://en.support.wordpress.com/trash/#restoring-from-trash
