Lost my post
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 straydog77.com.
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. 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?
Thank you for your response. I created my post on the front page of werdpress.com. Does this mean I can’t retrieve it anymore? Kindly advise.
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.
Thank you. I will follow the same in future. Thank you for you help in this. :) Happy new Year!!!
I do apologize if you’ve lost a post – we are working to resolve this.
