Lost draft

  1. I wrote my first blog post today and—I thougth—posted it. That is, until I sent a link to the post to a friend, and he said there was nothing there when he opened it. I've read through the help pages a dozen times, and WordPress says that it stores old versions of drafts, but the draft for this post is nowhere! I've since posted my 2nd entry, but I would truly love to recover my first post/draft, as it's the introduction to my blog. Can anyone help me find this draft?

  2. Please be sure to upgrade your browser version here first.

    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.
