  • Hello,

    One of my website’s users and all their posts seem to have just vanished. I really don’t know how or when ( they were there this morning) but it’s all gone. Can anyone offer any assistance?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Hello, that sounds strange, did you make any changes recently? My initial suspicion is it was a hack. Do you or your host have any backups you can restore to? Please follow WordPress standard procedure for dealing with a hack. As for restoring the missing content, there’s not much you can do other than restore from a backup.

    Is the user still there?
    Perhaps the user was deleted which then cascaded and removed all their posts.
    Only way to get them back is a restore from backup

    Ya, it’s a weird one all right. iPage has escalated the issue twice now. Hopefully I’ll get an answer that isn’t ‘sorry those 800 posts are gone…”

    and no, the user isn’t on the site anymore – though his account still works.

    Hmm, the user just tried again and got a pop up that says…

    This… does not seem legit to me…
