Support » Fixing WordPress » One post is lost – editable, but not visible

  • Andreas


    Hello everyone,

    I have stumbled across a peculiar problem: After many years of using WordPress, I have lost a post. The entry still exists, and while logged in, I can edit it – but neither the preview nor the viewing of the article work. Inevitably, I end up on 404.

    This is the entry’s address, unchanged since its publishing:
    The lost entry on Nonformality

    I have tried changing the webaddress of the article, and reverting to the standard permaling structure, both to no avail. The post is not private.

    Here is an archived version of the article on the wayback machine:

    The article on the Internet Archive

    Does someone have an idea what could be going on?

    Also of interest and possibly of help to resolve this mystery:

    The article appears in search results, as well as in the archive.
    It is also impossible to call the article by its numeric number.

    And I have a screenshot here for you to have a look at, of options such as publishing date, slug, status etc (from the quickedit overview in the admin panel):
