does WordPress save previous drafts?

    Is there any way I can access previous drafts of a post? I’ve made a stupid mistake working between two computers, and now its saved an old version as the current one. I’m desperate to get hold of the draft saved before this – can I do this? I read that there is supposed to be something called “page revisions”, but that doesnt show on my screen..

    if you can help me I’d be very grateful!

    The blog I need help with is



    Yes, this may be possible. In your Dashboard view, on the upper right corner, under the “[name]” is a tab labeled “Screen Options.” Click it. Here is a list o f the screens where the modules can be hidden:
    Posts – Post Tags, Categories, Excerpt, Send Trackbacks, Discussion, Comments, Post Slug, Post Author, Post Revisions
    Pages – Page Attributes, Recommendations, Featured Image, Discussion, Comments, Slug, Author, Revisions
    Select those and return to your Dashboard.

    Make sure you select Select Post Revisions and Page Revisions those and return to your Dashboard. Then close the tab.

    On the left toolbar, click on either “Pages” or “Posts” depending on what type of document are you are trying to restore.

    You can look the last autosave for Posts » Post Revisions
    You can look in the last autosave for Pages » Page Revisions
