I just spent over an hour creating a long multi-photograph post only to find out I created a Page and not a Post – to very distinct and different options in the WordPress format.
I knew something was wrong when I wasn’t able to add tags, but I clicked publish anyway and lo and behold, no post, it became a Page, adding to the About Me page and the page on how to add photos.
I couldn’t figure out a way of changing a page to a post so I decided to click “move page to trash” thinking I could cut and paste it all back into a post.
Um, no. It’s now permanently gone. Poof.
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Let me see how to get it all back or rewrite it. Since I write on the fly, typing without editing in my brain (dangerous), it’ll never be exactly how I created it. Hang on, Go get more coffee and I’ll be baaaak.
PS: Here’s the problem. WordPress changed the sequence of adding a Post versus a Page. It’s always been Blog POST first, always, so I clicked where I always have before. Why the change WordPress??? It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.
