Thank heavens for Mozilla Firefox and than heavens for this blog post: http://rossniemi.wordpress.com/2007/01/31/recovering-deleted-posts-using-wordpress/
I had accidentally deleted a long blog post about Starbucks and the Australian coffee market. I had almost given up when I came across this solution.
I accidentally deleted a draft post in wordpress that I was trying to publish at the time. I don’t know what happened but in the micro seconds that flashed before my eyes I understood that I had deleted that very post for good. I tried to find the cached google page of my post but it was too late.
What worked in the was to switch firefox to work offline and then retrieve the post by browsing the history of the web browser.
I hope this never happens to me (or anyone) again. So I leave the link to the post that saved my Sunday’s afternoon work and I leave my gratitude to the person that created that post.
