How have I lost my content?

  1. I wrote a post this morning and published it (or thought I had) - heading was Do you know someone who suffers from Eczema?

    I noticed a mistake and went to Edit to correct it - but when it opened most of the text had gone.

    Is there something I have done right - and can I get it back?

    Thanks, Geraldine

    The blog I need help with is

  2. You may be able to recover a 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.

    If you're not seeing the Revisions module while on the editor screen, click Screen Options (top right corner of your Admin page) to activate it. Then select the post and page modules to include them. 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 for locating and restoring a post revision, and it's not in your Trash folder then you will not be able to recover it.

    Did you create your post on the dashboard of your own blog?
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New

    Or did you create your post on the front page of!/post/

    Create your posts on the dashboard of your own blog
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New

    Or use an offline blog editor so you always have backups on your own computer

  3. Thank you. :-)
