Always create your posts on the dashboard of your own blog at Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New The auto-save works there and the post will be Standard post format unless you change it. Do not create posts here > http://wordpress.com/#!/post/ where the auto-save is not working and where you are creating an Aside post format. Use an offline blog editor so you have backups on your own computer http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc/ Author Posts The topic ‘Unpublished post disappeared’ is closed to new replies.
