Revisiting Old Post – Actually Having To Repost
Posted by terrepruitt on January 24, 2015
I am looking through my drafts in WordPress to see if there is anything I started to write that I can finish up and use as a post. I went to a Nia class this morning and spent the day visiting with a friend, so I am trying to post at the last minute (again). I am very confused it is showing I have 26 drafts. That seems like an awful lot because I don’t type my posts in the WordPress editor. I typed them in Notepad. Sometimes I type them in the WordPress editor, but not often. I am confused because I also take copies of my posts after I post them and I am seeing copies of the post in my folder and I am seeing comments on them. But they are showing as drafts. WordPress has been changing so much with the admin portion of the site I am surprised crazy stuff doesn’t happen all the time. As things grow often times the simplicity of things get taken away and now what was one click to the admin page I have to click at least four things to get to where I am going. “Improvements” is a word they should use loosely. So I discovered the weirdest things while looking in my drafts. So far, I have discovered two posts that had been posted in August 2013 that are now showing in draft and are no longer on the calendar. One had 14 comments on it, so I know that it was posted at one time.
So I thought I would point them out in case they really weren’t posted in the first place. Which would mean that saminaiqbal27 of Samina’s Forum for police support never had that conversation. The first one I discovered I reposted as of the date of the original post. In the admin screen it had showed that there were six likes. When I reposted it they reappeared so hopefully Samina’s and my conversation will come back. (It did!)
The first post that I discovered was no longer on the blog was posted on Tuesday, August 13, 2013. It was a silly post about a silly subject. It was one of the things I hesitated posted about because it was so silly. But I remember now that at the time I was really appreciating my husband helping out with the cat’s liter box and I thought it was funny that he was making it funny. But then as time went on it turned out to be a really good thing. The post that was gone and is now back is S For Spa, Serene, Spot.
For A Taller You was the second post that was showing in drafts and NOT on my blog, but now it is back, with comments and all. Strange.
I just found another one, I Smell Something. Unfortunately I thought I had seen it on the blog still so I deleted the one that was showing up in the drafts, but it turns out that was the one that had been posted. Good thing I keep copies of all my posts. I just copied and pasted it into a new post, but with the original post date. But any likes were lost. I hesitated reposting this one because that diffuser died shortly after. They kindly offered to send me a replacement. And they did. It lasted for about 5 minutes. I gave up on that.
Well, at this time, it is late and I want to go visit with my hubby so I will go through all the “drafts” at a later time . . . because I have nothing else to do . . . I’ll probably share again if any others have become drafts. So weird.
Any of you on WordPress having weird stuff happen? If you have a different blog platform do you like it?
