WordPress just ate the content of my post

I just published a post entitled “Rain, the cat and the trestle” and when I went to check on it, all the images were gone as was the text. The original post wasn’t in “Trashed” bin so I don’t know what happened. Has this ever happened to any of you?

The images I uploaded were all there in the Media Library so I don’t know what to think. Any suggestions?

  1. You had two instances of the post open and mistakenly saved the empty draft?
    Personally, all my literary posts are written in GDocs, I then transfer them. WordPress has a different editor and finds technical mistakes that GDocs misses, but I try to copy back to google what wp corrects.
    WP often finds a “version” that wasn’t saved and if I opt to apply the newer, unsaved copy — have gotten unexpected results.

    Compelling image, that.

  2. The WordPress system could have marked it for quarantine, and it’s currently in a queue waiting for someone at WordPress to check it. It could also be a bug connected with the theme you’re using. WordPress has deleted and stopped supporting many of the old themes. It’s probably worth checking with one of their Happiness Engineers.
