Why does quick post vanish all your work?

    You have a big problem in your quick post feature. If you click wrong button, unlike the main New Post feature, it does not save the content anywhere, does not ask you if you want to leave the page, it just goes away, as does all your work.

    I WILL NEVER USE IT AGAIN. It also does not give you a way to access the formatting tools such as type size, and it does not let you access image library – and it was simply trying to back out of an attempt to do that that vanished my HOUR of effort using the quick post.

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



    HEY IDIOTS a USER FORUM is no way to provide customer support. I have NEVER gotten a timely useful answer from a forum. If you don’t want to actually help solve user problems, do us all a favor and be like Facebook where no matter what is wrong, there is no way to get an answer. Than at least there will be no false expectations. But asking people who already don’t know how to do something how to do something in hopes they’ve already crossed that bridge is merely a formula for frustration.



    You waited 3 whole minutes for an answer and then bumped your own thread.



    I never ever use “quick post” because it creates Asides and Asides are post formats. They don’t have Titles and can’t have Categories assigned to them.

    Aside – These are brief snippets of text that aren’t quite whole blog posts. Useful for quick thoughts and anecdotes http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-formats/

    You ought to be able to go here > Dashboard > All Posts > Posts and locate the post. If it’s not there then look in your Drafts. Edit the post and add your video to it and even change the post format to a Standard post format.

    Standard – Your normal, average, everyday blog post. This is the default styling for your theme.

    If you aren’t successful locating the Aside post 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) 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.



    Quick Post, alas doesn’t appear to have Autosave enabled, which sucks. It’s actually dangerous.

    By the way, the average wait time in an internet forum is something like 14 hours. Here it is less than 5 minutes.

    You’re welcome.
