About 4 hours work down the drain and the last time that I add anything directly into WordPress. I thought I was doing the right thing by saving the draft - only to see that everthing since the previous draft save had just disappeared.
Is there any way to recover the lost text?
How did this happen anyway? Is it a bug?
After the "problem save" (after several that were OK) the timestamp showed the time of the previous save. However, when I opened the draft in a different tab the timestamp for the "problem save" was correct but the content was still as per the previous save.
I have searched for any report of a similar problem and could not find anything.
I did find some messages reporting problems with autosave but my blog does not seem to autosave - is this function that is turned off by default?
I am more familiar with WordPress.com which stores previous version so you can cycle back if you ever wanted to.
Is this not a feature of WordPress.org blogs?
Very fed-up and tired as it was something that was actually important that I was writing just for a change.
