    Hi,

    I have accidentially deleted a post and want to restore it but cant find the "trash" icon.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction.

    Thanks so much

    On the top left of the Posts page you should see something like.

    All (19) | Published (19) | Trash (6)

    Click trash

    hiya, actually it doesn't appear there at all. I only have:

    All (49) | Published (48) |Draft (1)

    I am currently using version 2.9.2. Would that make any difference?

    Thanks so much

    If you dont see it, then you dont have any in Trash.

    Just tested with 2.9.2 and didnt see any, so I made a post, saved it (not published), trashed it, and I saw it.

    So I am guessing you lost your post.

    You can try browsing to /wp-admin/edit.php?post_status=trash

    ok, thanks for the tip. Do I view this link through server or can it be done through wp dashboard?

    thanks again for your help
