  • Well, on the bright side, when I searched for my post in Bing, they actually had a cached page that I was able to use to rebuild it very quickly. So that was cool. Good idea for anyone else who makes this mistake (google did not have a cached page, fwiw).

    Hi,

    thanks for your post. You are right, the answer to that question is “no”. When a table is imported, it overrides the previous contents. Unless you have a backup of the database, or the table as file, the Google, Bing, or Internet Archive caches are the only chance.
    So, it’s good to hear that Bing had a copy here 🙂

    By the way: TablePress, see official successor of WP-Table Reloaded (see http://tobias.baethge.com/2013/01/tablepress-replaces-wp-table-reloaded/ for more) uses the WP revisions system. So chances are higher that a table in TablePress can be recovered, which is another good reason to migrate.

    Best wishes,
    Tobias

    Thanks Tobias — the table actually was in TablePress. For future reference, how can you recover your tables there?

    Hi,

    ah, thanks for the clarification! Then you could have restored it from the DB as well (unless you have turned off the Revisions feature in the wp-config.php).
    You can basically find the backups/revisions of the tables in the wp_posts table. They will have a post_type of tablepress_table and a post_status of revision.
    There’s also a way to do this directly in the WP admin area, with that small custom plugin that I mentioned. As that’s not that easy to use at this time, I haven’t published it though.

    Regards,
    Tobias
