    I think I just deleted a post I’d almost finished! I was just putting in a final image, and noticed it had over written all the text! before I knew it, the site auto saved, and Ive nothing left!
    Is there any way of getting that work back does anyone know?

    The blog I need help with is completelyfreesalesadvice.wordpress.com.

    WordPress software has an autosave feature that saves every 2 minutes. Each time you click Save Draft or Update Post (or Page) a revision is saved.

    <p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>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
    Page – Page Attributes, Recommendations, Featured Image, Discussion, Comments, Slug, Author, Revisions
    Select those and return to your Dashboard.</p>
    <p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>Make sure you select Select Post Revisions and Page Revisions those and return to your Dashboard. Then close the tab.</p>
    <p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>On the left toolbar, click on either “Pages” or “Posts” depending on what type of document are you are trying to restore.</p>

    If you don’t find the post or page then it could be in your trash. Provided you did not permanently delete it then restoration is possible.
