    Member is the old blog name… meaning it is the blog which I would like to retrieve the content and design. Thanks!


    Member – was a WordPress.ORG installed blog and not hosted here – so we can’t help you – see the friendly supportbot above for links to where you can get help

    That said – contact your old host and ask them if they have any backup files / tapes etc. that they will give / sell to you –

    Search engine cache’s will have much of the content but retrieving content that way is tedious

    good luck



    thank you!!! :)



    You be welcome & good luck

    PS – if you do get your WordPress.ORG install up and running again – there are some Plug-in’s you can use that will do a site backup to your PC so if something bad happens to your site again you have a copy yourself
