    the quick draft in the main page (once you login into your dashboard) doesn't save anything. I lost a couple of posts from collaborators because of it

    Im using a spanish version of WP and the theme is twenty ten, the latest version

    Ill be happy to provide more info if needed

    I admit, this is a functionality Ive never used before so I dont know if in previous version of WP worked. If it did, then Im willing to revert to a previous version because this is something I desperately need

    basically what Im asking is, can anyone tell me for sure which was the latest version of WP where quickdraft worked?

    and is there any solution for this current version to fix this issue? any WP gurus who can lend a hand?

  6. The bug has been reported https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/27734 but I'm not sure when the fix will be pushed out to users.

    good to read that , Jeff

    not really sure what to do next, if revert to a previous version of WP where this option works (I'd have to know first whats the most recent version where it works, and how to revert to a previous WP version) or wait til the fix is applied

  8. It most likely worked in WordPress 3.8.1 but if you revert to that version, you'll lose the security updates 3.8.2 offered. I haven't seen any confirmation yet but there might be a 3.8.3 to address this issue.

    Lost a full blog, utterly, yesterday. Tried a short one and it saved and I can't see any difference in process. So I need to await a fix?

  15. Hello all,

    yes, this is a known problem in 3.8.2, see ticket https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/27734.

    3.8.3 will include a recovery process, so your data is not lost. In the meantime you should avoid Quick Draft.

    Unfortunately, the draft save doesn't always work. I saved two (tests) but lost one (the actual post). Pity. I don't usually use Quick Draft, now I have a good reason not to try. And I did check the DB for the posts, but the one post I wanted was missing.

    Quickdraft is now fixed http://wordpress.org/news/2014/04/wordpress-3-8-3/

    Update core to 3.8.3 and it will resolve the issue!

    If I should start a new thread, please let me know.

    After a 2-week gap, I signed back into my WordPress blog today, to find that half of my extended last draft has disappeared. I've looked through the support forums and have found many people with disappearing-draft problems. The solutions proposed typically sound straightforward, but there are many, many embedded steps that I as a nontechnical user do not find intuitive. For instance, I can't figure out how to find out what version my "core" is. The instructions for upgrading to WordPress 4.0 don't seem to apply to me as a blogger using a WordPress Pro site - I don't know whether I even have WordPress installed or am just using WordPress's own hosting. Then I'm told I'd better back up my site before trying to upgrade, but the instructions for how to back up require me to figure out what FTP and php and so forth are, and how to manipulate them. It's a rabbit hole that will take hours to figure out and execute! All I want to do is get my previous drafts back where they were supposed to be.

    OK, sorry about the rant. Is there an easy way to get my drafts back that somehow I've missed in my searches?

    My site is naturalpresencearts.com. Thanks SO much for any help you can offer in simplifying all this - I thought I was sort of experienced, but it looks like I'm actually a raw novice. :-)
