Lost my post

  1. I wrote a post and saved but I can't find it in draft. Unfortunately I did not save the contents anywhere. Is there a way you can get my post?

    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/

  3. Thank you for your response. I created my post on the front page of Does this mean I can't retrieve it anymore? Kindly advise.

  4. Yes, it probably means it's irretrieveable. ALWAYS create your post either from Dashboard->Posts->Add New or from the drop down menu on the admin bar->Add New. ALL other options, it seems, do not work with the autosave.

  5. Thank you. I will follow the same in future. Thank you for you help in this. :) Happy new Year!!!

  6. Hi there,
