My drafts do not publish -they just disapper.

  1. My drafts do not post to my blog when I push the "publish" button. They are gone and when I go back to my drafts the initial drafts I "published" that did not show up are no longer among the drafts. The last post showing on my site is Feb 19, however I have published at least 2 since then. I have stopped writing because I don't want the time and effort lost when I "publish" only to have them disappear.

    I am on (free version) and have been for over 3 years without problems.
    I have tried to publish from Mozilla & IE, and from my tablet on Android -none of them work.
    I have spent hours on the support forums looking for a solution to no avail
    I have cleared my cache & cookies. I've hit a wall and need your support.
    Thank you!

    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.
