Nano Poblano – Day 14: Missing Posts


How could I possibly go a day without having something new to love WordPress for? Today I have (that I’ve found so far) four posts missing from my page. They’re still accessible from the links made to them and I can still find them internally. On top of that, I can’t see my sidebar from my computer when I look at my home page, though my lovely friend Belinda says she can see it from hers.

Here are the missing posts:

Note that one of them is a complaint over the view stats.

If I go missing completely, it means WordPress ate me for posting this. In the meantime, you might want to check out your own blogs and see if anything is missing from your site.ย  I’m waiting for support to get back to me on mine.

Edit: The Nano Poblano Oddly Specific Gratitude Blog Hop post just showed up but the other three are still missing.

  1. I don’t know if any of my posts are missing or not, I wouldn’t remember them so how could I miss them? Ha ha, I just love having a swiss cheese memory (a Quantum Leap reference). I hope you get the help you need from the support team.


  2. Well, I can see your sidebar, so there’s that. How did you discover that your posts were missing? Were you unable to view them?


  3. If I write about how balky WP can be, I may get booted off, too, Linda G. So must be messing up somehow, ya know?! Hahahahaha. Good golly, what’s going on? The case of the vanishing Linda G. world.


  4. Linda – i had this happen a few weeks ago. The WP guy that helped me could not figure out WHY it happened but he told me to go into ‘settings’ and turn off the ‘infinite scroll’ option. Once I did thst, the missing posts appeared. (It makes no sense to turn off infinite scroll in order to get posts to scroll, but it worked). A few days later, I turned it back on and , so far, no more of that glitch (I probably just jinxed myself).


  5. OH! you have caught my bad Karma … so sorry! I hope all posts return I know they existed I read them! xxxxx


  6. I had this happen to the first few posts I ever blogged, but they were really only there because I had a few classes that required it. I still have the documents in my dashboard, but no one else can see them.


  7. Your posts turned up in the reader, and I clicked over from Facebook. Never noticed if they were missing from your main page.


  8. Yikes. I hope it is just some dumb system glitch that will remedy itself or they will get your posts back. I know I will be upset if any of mine go missing. It makes me think that we should make copies or email them to ourselves. But that is a lot of work. Hope you get help from support ASAP.


  9. My stats did what yours did the other day, dropped 30% in fifteen minutes. I give up trying to know what is happening ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Yeah, that happened to quite a few people.

      Having a post that a dozen or so people have linked to because it was a prompt go missing is going a bit far though. Normally I don’t bother support with these things, but this time I did.


  10. I don’t seem to be missing any but the stats have been wonky as you say. They shouldn’t penalize you for the truth.


Don't hesitate - jump right in!
