Support » Fixing WordPress » Trashed posts have vanished?

  • Over the years I’ve trashed a few posts and I just went to find them but they aren’t there – my trash folder has nothing in, from what I can see. Do trashed items automatically get deleted?

    With plain WP install Trash is not emptied automatically,
    unless you press a button or some plugin does that for you (Bulk WP optimization plugins can flush spam, trash, among other clean ups)

    Thanks @fierevere is there somewhere in the standard settings I might have changed?

    define('EMPTY_TRASH_DAYS', 1 );

    You might have defined this constant in wp-config.php (1 is example number of days)
    there are no other settings with plain WP, without additional plugins installed which may affect Trash

    Hmm, how strange. I haven’t done anything like that. I wonder where the posts could have gone.

    Just following up to see if anyone else has any ideas as to where these posts might have gone / could be?
