I published a post, but my friend said it was not posted. Why?

    I published a post at 11:28 am. My friend told me that the post wasn’t up when he checked at 1 pm and that he had to go in and publish the post at that time. I am wondering if there are regions that published posts dont show up in or why the post did not appear on the page when it said it was published?

    The blog I need help with is chicritics.com.


    What is the title of the post?

    Go to posts > all posts in your dashboard and see if it is there. If it is, on the far right, does it say that it is published?



    Unfortunately, there’s a recurring bug where some posts go out on the RSS feed and subscriptions, but don’t show up on the blog. We can’t seem to narrow down the cause, either. I recommend using an offline blog editor to post, so that if it doesn’t go up at least you have another copy to paste in.



    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. 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 for locating and restoring 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

    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 WordPress.com?

    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 http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc/
