    I have 23 posts which have vanished. How do I retrieve them?

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

    Have they disappeared from your Posts list in your Dashboard, as well as from the site?

    –go to Dashboard > Posts > All Posts. If you can find them in the list, check that their Visibility is set to ‘Public,’ and their Status is ‘Published.’

    –if not, check your Trash from the All Posts screen.

    Here is some info that might help you find the trash and status, etc: Edit Posts Screen

    –If the posts are really and truly gone, you can try to recreate them if they exist in google’s cache: Deleted Posts and Pages

    Let us know if these suggestions help!

    They have vanished from everywhere. I only know one for sure, because I was about to reference it.

    I have noticed gaps for a while and thought posts had just posted like that. It wasn’t until a couple of days ago when I was looking specifically for something I had written, that I looked through and saw the other gaps. The only one I know for sure is the one now mentioned.

    They have just vanished, gone, even from my Facebook page. The photos however are still in the Media section.

    I have been as far as page 26 on the link you provided. I have also asked Contributors to check to see which articles of theirs are missing. When I have written elsewhere now or in the past, I keep a copy for myself. I figured they’d be safe here.

    I have no idea when this happened. I may never have thought further on it if I hadn’t want to reference something I wrote.

    I have 7 photos dated 20th September which was on the article. It says “unattached” I know what it was about but no idea as to the name.

    The point is why has this happened? I am in the process of changing to a WP website, it’s in the hands of someone at present who is moving everything across.

    “Can your locate them here in Google’s indexed search results?”

    No I can’t as I don’t know the names.

    It appears that your username sfinn2013 has deleted posts regularly over the past few months, with several having been deleted within the past couple of days.

    If you are not deleting them, someone else may have access to your account. You should immediately change your WordPress.com password as well as the password to the email address associated with this account. Also consider whether someone else has access to the computer you use to log in, and if so, be sure to log out of your account whenever you’re done.

    Thank you so much. I knew I wasn’t imagining things. Yes I know a few have vanished again in the last few days too.
    My account has been hacked.
    It’s not more than 6 months old either.
    Internet access via my Ultrabook is at home, my husband never goes near it.

    I am trying to work out if it could be via my phone. I don’t know if the spaces were there before I download the App.

    I have removed my phone App. Do you think that is necessary.?

    I have changed my email address totally and my password.

    The WordPress app on your phone would only be a liability if A) you have no passcode on your phone and B) it is regularly left in a location where others have access to it.

    For now, use an offline blog editor like Blogdesk or Windows Live Writer to create posts. They keep a copy of everything.

    Thanks very much fro that advice. Greatly appreciated. Since posting this and hopefully rectifying the issue I lost another 5.

    Disable ALL browser add-ons. See if you have any called “code cleaner” or something like that. If so, delete them permanently; a few years ago someone enabled it,a nd it stripped out every post in her five year old blog.

    Export a full copy of your blog right now, from the Tools page. Then you can just import it again if you continue to lose posts.

    I do not see any additional posts being deleted from jewsdownunder.wordpress.com. I also see nothing unusual in your trash or in drafts.

    Can you please post the titles or links to posts that have gone missing?
