Missing Posts

    The posts on this site and another are missing both on the dashboard and the blog. Please help.

    The blog I need help with is studioktf.wordpress.com.



    I see that you have deleted the Hello World placeholder post and that created a 404 page not found error on the front page. http://en.support.wordpress.com/not-found/ Be aware that the error message will disappear as soon as you publish a post, not a page. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    If you have created other posts you cannot locate using the “Add New” on the main page for wordpress.com here http://wordpress.com/#!/post/ then they may be lost and may not be recoverable.

    If you created the post in your own dashbaord here > http://studioktf.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php/ then 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) 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

    1.Create posts and pages on your own blog’s dashboard.

    2. When you start a new post, add the title, set it to private and then publish it. When you are done with the post edit it to update it and set it back to publish.

    3. The other choice is to get and use an offline blog client such as Windows Live Writer (Windows) or Ecto (Mac) and then everything is saved on your computer and when you are done with the post, you actually publish it directly from the blog client software. See here for offline blog editors so you don’t have to go through this again http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc


    Do your work for or represent WordPress?

    The missing posts were all created on the dashboard, successfully posted and viewed and have not been revised since they were posted. Your response doesn’t address this.



    What are the titles of the posts? Are they visible on the Dashboard? Have you looked in the Trash folder? How many posts did you have, and are this blog and the other administered by the same user? If so, change your email password immediately as well as your WordPress.com password.
