Lost Autosave

  1. Hi,

    I was writing for one of my posts and unintentionally I pressed "the back" button without saving my post and the page went the previous page. This happened around 01.27am in our time on 23 February. Then, I pressed forward to have it back. But I can only see the draft taken at 11.15pm on 22 February. Can I restore my post if it is possible?

    The blog I need help with is

  2. You may be able to recover an earlier 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. I had already tried the revision thing. Yet, still I cannot see my last autosave. I believe I lost all stuff I wrote. This experience thought me that I will write all my stuff in Word next time.
