Hi everyone and Happy New Year! I have lost a post (which took several hours to compile). I scheduled it to post at 11am this morning. I got up to proof it once more, only to find it has disappeared completely. It is not in drafts, it is not already posted.
Luckily I kept some of my notes, so I can recreate it but I had hoped there would be some way to access autosave or something!
The other problem I've been having is it has been taking up to one minute to save any changes I've made to the theme, and also posts are taking a long time to save. I had my son come take a look and he asked me what plug-ins I'd installed recently. I keep notes on what changes I make, and I thought the slow saving started around the time I installed the Smart YouTube plug-in. He suggested I deactivate it and test. I was able to save template changes and blog posts with no problem once deactivated. Then I reactivated Smart YouTube and everything is still saving quickly.
Could deactivating and reactivating a plug-in help to speed save times (would it be like rebooting a computer to get a fresh start)? I have not yet upgraded to Wordpress 2.9, am still at WP 2.8.6. using 21 widgets and 23 plug-ins.
Right now it seems like the problem is solved, but I am concerned that it will resurface and if I'll have another post go missing. Is there any way to find a post that has gone missing?
Thank you in advance,
P.S. I am totally in love with this theme. I have recently started using it at my new food blog and it is such fun customizing (same installation of WP, saving just fine)!!
