6 ways to recover deleted post


(If you are looking for help to recover deleted blog, refer to related posts or other related posts at the bottom of this post) .

Method 1
Method 2
Method 3
Method 4

Method 6

Blogger has introduced Undelete this blog for you to easily recover deleted blogs. Unfortunately there isn't a "Undelete post" yet. So if you accidentally deleted a post, how can you try to recover (undelete) the deleted post? There are 3 ways, one of which depends on the cooperation of a helper plus a good memory or clever guesswork.

Method 1

This method is applicable if you are still working on the same computer where you had prepared the post (or had viewed the deleted post). Just press ctrl+H (Cmd+H on MAC OS) to open a sidebar listing the browser history. Go to the part where you were editing the post and continue to edit or publish the post (or copy-paste from the cached copy of the displayed post):

browser history in sidebar

Alternative keyboard shortcut to call up the browser is shift+ctrl+H (shift+Cmd+H for MAC OS).

Method 2

This method is applicable if you had not closed the tab or window where you had been preparing the deleted post (or had viewed the deleted post). Just keep pressing the BACK button till you get back to the point where you were editing the post (or had viewed the post).

Method 3

Try to find a cached copy of the deleted post on the Web and restore the post from the cached copy. Type in

cache:URL

to try to find cached copies on the net.

Alternatively, you can just type in some relevant search terms, especially what you can remember from the post title, into the search box and search. If the search throws up a result, click the link cached (see screen shot below) to open the cached webpage and either reconstruct a fresh post with the content from that cached webpage or alternatively use the method described in Recover accidentally deleted post including original permalink and comments to restore the post to its original state.

SERP resulting from searching for recover accidentally deleted post - how

Another possibility is to try the Way Back Machine. For demonstration, I typed in the old pre-custom domain URL of this blog, namely http://blogger-tricks.blogspot.com into the Way Back Machine and this is what I obtained: archives of blogger-tricks.blogspot.com from Way Back Machine and below are the screen shots of the results:

screenshot of archive from Way Back Machine

and here is the screen shot of the October 8 2007 archive which showed no background color for the header and the old Google AdSense custom search box which if you compare with the current search box above, is different thus verifying that is is the actual archive of a page which now is non-existent on the Internet:

screen shot of October 8 2207 archived version of this blog

Once you have located a cached copy from the search engine, you can either copy the content and create a new post using the pasted content. However, the permalink (individual post URL) will be different from the original. If you don't want to recreate the post but want back the same permalink, then refer to Method 5: recover deleted post with original permalink.

Method 4

This is applicable even if you have no access to the computer where you had edited or viewed the deleted post, but you must have the URL (permalink) of the deleted post. If you don't have the URL, then you can try to guess the URL from the post title.

You will also need to know when the post was first published, or alternatively, can guess the date. This is because Blogger incorporates the date (year and month) when the post was first published.

Note also the URL ends with .html

For example, the title of this post is "Recover accidentally deleted post: How?". Now I haven't published the post yet, but I can guess that this post URL will be:

http://www.bloggertipsandtricks.com/2009/08/recover-accidentally-deleted-post-how.html

If you have or can guess the deleted post URL and you want to try to undelete the deleted post, you can try posting the post URL and your problem at Blogger Help Forum and hope to catch the attention of a Blogger Employee.

Refer to for Method 5

Method 6. Get blog Feed

The idea for this method was obtained from Mishka. Full Success or partial success or failure with this method will depend on whether you have set your blog feed to none, full or short. If you have set blog feed to full, you will even be able to recover the images you included in your deleted post.

What you do with this method is to surf over to your blog and look for that feed icon (this section is under editing)

  1. Thank you soo much for putting up this post Peter.It gave me some hope..phew. I am quite upset about losing a post I had written yesterday. My problem is I think it was still in drafts. Does that totally diminish my chance of finding it at all? I had put in more than two hours in it plus I'm not sure if I can write it the same way! :(
    The title I gave it was Jimmy Choo, it was about his seminar that I attended yesterday!! I have to submit an assignment on that too.
    Is there anything at all that I can do?
    I have recently created this blog. I've transferred four of my posts from Wordpress. The two I wrote here got deleted I suppose. I can't figure out how.I clearly remember saving them both to drafts!! :(
    Your help/guidance would be REALLY appreciated!!

    ReplyDelete
  2. Have you tried what had been suggested in the post? Or do you have the URL of the deleted post or at least can guess what is the URL?

    ReplyDelete
  3. Method 2 is not applicable in my case.
    Funny thing is that with method 2 I manage to go to the page where I was writing the post...but I just get to see the first 2 paras! it was much longer :( I see all the posts I had checked ( even drafts) but for some reason the 2 drafts that got deleted ( and I have no clue how!) aren't there!

    It even took me to the pages where I've deleted a post or a draft. The url i noticed says blogger.com/post-delete.g?blogID=....&postID=
    Now I can always copy the same blog Id but have no clue about the post ID
    Since the title I gave was Jimmy Choo I tried guessing something like http://echoesofthissoul.blogspot.com/2009/09/Jimmy-Choo.html
    I wrote the name in several ways but all failed
    So not sure if method 3 is working for me...

  15. I have recovered the post.
    I found a window I had left open that still had the edit post page open.
    I then saved everything, and posted it and the post came back.

  16. I've tried everything on this post and in comments, but cannot get back my draft. It had not been published at all. I had highlighted my draft, thinking I would be able to copy and paste it elsewhere (ironically, as back up) and I must have hit backspace or something, because POOF it was gone. The autosave came into play, or something, because hitting undo didn't bring it back. I tried going back in my browser too, but only the Unintentional Edit appears. I have learned my lesson, but if there's any way to get this back I would love to know.

  21. I too accidently deleted a post....I had been working on it for over two hours! It had 7 pics on it...and I was almost done and somehow in my typing it just disappeared...I tried all your suggestions and could not find it...one thing I believe I might have done...but I don't really know what it means...other than it erased my post...is I believe I might have hit control n and n ...don't ask me how I figure this...but for some reason that is what I remember as I was typing...so I have since opened up another window and tested what that command does and it is almost like it refreshes the screen...therefore deleting what I have typed...is there any way to recover what I had worked on...it was an important post and I know there is no way I can recreate it. I would so much appreciate your help. I am sick over it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. ctrl+N is open new tab or window and it appears it should not affect current window?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I typed a test email and hit control n and it deleted the text...however...it saved it in my draft box. But my original email I am searching to recover is not in my draft box....I went back through my history and there is no trace of it...could I have used some other command that erased it from the file...and just need to use another command to tell it to replace it? In every document in my history I see the post title...but there is no content....I don't understand how 2 hours of typing and pictures can just disappear right before my eyes. ugh!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. "In every document in my history I see the post title...but there is no content"

    That may mean that the cached version of your post may be blank. However, don't take what I say to be the Gospel truth.

  25. Thank You so muchhhh for teaching us this fatal skills Peter!! I hv used method 1 and it really works!

    Before this im using method 2 bt it doesnt work after blogspot has refreshed the browser. I actually wanna copy the content of the post into another post, but I lost it when I accidentally re-copy other things. It's impossible for me to re-write the same thing in the same way. So Im so upset to search for ways to recover it...at least for a hope until I found here. Anyway, thanks and all the best to you! ^^

  26. I have accidentally deleted a draft of a post on a private blog.

    Because it is private, I do not want to write the URL here.

    May I send you an email with the information, to see if you can help?
    Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Since yours is a private blog, there is no point of giving the URL for not only is it inaccessible to us, the post has also not been cached by browsers. Your only hope is to find a copy in your computer via history.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Please retrieve this post for me.

  35. Backup? For post being prepared, not published yet, only save as draft. For posts already published, see backup blog with export (and restore with import)

    Who fund me? Nobody. Well almost nobody. I get a bit of income from advertisements.

  39. I have tried all your tips and can not successfully retrieve a deleted post. My URL is:thernmtripod.blogspot.com, and the post was called "News...Fears...Feelings"

    This is extremely important to me and I have already posted a question on the help forum with no rely. Anything you can do would be amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I am in the process of updating this post. The basic is getting the post ID and one of the method of getting the post ID is getting a cached copy of that particular post. Try to do that and get back to me.

  41. Thank you so much for posting this. Saved me lots of trouble. I deleted my post when it was finally done too! I was panicking.

  42. Ugh, I spent the last 3 DAYS on a post. It was saved in draft on my blog. I was about to publish it, but accidentally deleted a picture. So I hit the undo button, thinking it would bring the picture back. Instead, POOF, all the text vanished. ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I tried all of your tips, and nothing worked. Anyone else have any other ideas? Thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Try to get a cached copy of your post or blog and try to view page source so as to get the post ID

  44. Thank you, but I'm not sure how to do that.

  45. Search using search terms that you can remember of the post, especially the post title

  47. Your post gave me some hope... but then the solutions just didn't work.
    Like some others here I hit the crtl+a and then another key. And my post was gone. Just before I wanted to write the last word of a pretty long entry.
    However I didn't have a title yet... so the solutions on your post are not directly applicable (I tried to remember the first sentence though).

    Basically it has got overwritten by another post with a different title when i published from word to my blog. is there anyway my old post can be reinstated? Pls help

    ReplyDelete
  54. Sounds like you have 2 possibility. One is if you have set your feed to full and if you can get hold of the feed for that post

    The other is to get the attention of a Blogger Employee such as Gatsby at the Blogger Help Forum and hope he can help you restore your post as you have the exact permalink (post URL)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Thanks Peter. I have recreated my blog. I had posted the query on google help also but havent recieved a response so far on whether it is possible to revert overwritten changes.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Thank you so much. I just started on my first blog, had 3 things written and mistakenly deleted them when i was trying to delete some extra drafts. Had I not been able to recover those i may have never blogged again!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Thank you so much! Your post is very helpful... especially to newbies like me. It was so frustrating when I accidentally deleted my post! Again, thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Thanks a bunch Peter for this VERY helpful tips.

  59. Depending on what we have, recovery or restoration depend on what we managed to find. Restoration can be just simple republishing of the data with or without the photos if the text of the post is all we have. However, if we managed to get the post ID we can have a full restoration as explained in Recover deleted post including comments and permalink. Unfortunately the feed will not have the post ID

    ReplyDelete
  60. Hi. I was editing an old blog post and accidentally deleted a photo. I don't want to click "save now" or "publish post" because I don't want it saved this way, but I don't know how to go back to where I had the picture. Please help!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Blog URL: www.myplacetoyours.blogspot.com
    Browser: Mac Snow Leopard


    I was almost finished w/ a long post that had lots of links and pics. I deleted a pic and somehow all but the first two sentences of my post were deleted. I'd been saving/auto-saving all along. Unfortunately, Blogger auto-saved the EMPTY post before I could stop it. My post did not yet have a title, but the first two lines are:

    Several weeks ago I wrote a post highlighting this vintage praying lady. You may have seen it ...

    Peter, I've tried all of the methods you suggest with no success. FYI: 1) My Blogger window has remained open since the deletion. 2) Method 1 returned me from Firefox to my desktop; no sidebar even came up. 3)My blog is set to FULL on the feed (although I don't have any idea what to do w/ that info!)

    Can someone PLEASE help me retrieve my draft!!!

    Thanks in advance.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Oh my god, why didn't I think of that?! Thank you so much! Method 2worked :) So maybe my blog isn't that great, or all that important, but it took me an hour to write this post and losing it sucked. Thank so much again!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hello, I searched for the deleted post using key words from the post. But when I click on cache, the deleted post does not appear in the cache at all. So I cannot recover the postID from the source page.
    Here is the SERP- http://www.google.com/#sclient=psy&num=10&hl=en&q=once+in+a+while+love+gives+us+a+fairytale+with+a+twist&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=&psj=1&fp=6acc1525ae789cdb

    The post I want to recover is the third one- With a Twist...
    Is there any way you can help, please?

    ReplyDelete
  67. The SERP you gave contains posts
    - The Big Cosmic Question
    - There's a Stranger in my House
    - An Independence Day Thought
    - The good part of rainy summer..
    - Boredom x Time = A Tag !!
    - The Car Hunt

    Found this "postID=5952799719043367793" for the first by typing
    cache:http://supergirl20.blogspot.com/2010/10/big-cosmic-question.html

    Is the post you want included in the list above and if not, can you remember its title?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Hey, no the post I want to recover is not included in the list- I cannot understand why it does not appear in the cache.. I searched for the post using a few words I remember from the text, and the SERP contains an excerpt of the deleted post with those search words, but when I click on cache, the full post does not appear in that. I cannot remember the title but I know that it was published on October 21 2009, between posts "An Independence Day thought" and "There's a Stranger in my house".
    Does that help in any way?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Try to remember the post title

    ReplyDelete
  70. Hey, Peter, thank you so much for your post, I tried method 2 it did worked for 2 of the postings. But I still haven't been able to recover one of my last post. Do you know what possibly could have happened? I published it just about like 2 or 3 days ago, does it have any effects? Like it won't show up on cache until a while? Will it show up after like say a week or two? Thanks a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  71. There are other ways such as checking your blog feed etc. Have to tried them? Also read recover deleted post including original permalink

    ReplyDelete
  72. I did try method 1, but I can't find the post in my history. I don't think I can try the other one, because I don't have the original permalink. How do you get the blog feed thing? I'm can't find it under editing. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  73. What is your blog URL? If you have published (then deleted) the post, it would have a permalink which if you can retrieve it can help you restore the post

    ReplyDelete
  74. I think my keywords are pretty general, I wrote a review on Social Network, so I think it'll be hard to find it. When I google it, I can't find mine and got tons of results. Can't use your recover deleted post including original permalink. My URL: http://www.littleboywithbigdreams.blogspot.com/. Thanks!

  82. Peter,
    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I used Method 1 and it worked!! I have never deleted a post before in 535 posts, and I can't BELIEVE I did that, but thank the Lord that there are people like you out there who know how to help in situations like this! I linked to this very helpful post in my blog, and can't thank you enough.

  83. I have already given a link and can't change that page link given there. Now I failed to redirect the url link too. I do have the copy of the post but the url link I am unable to obtain back.

    Is it possible to get back the url link.

    Just a try.

    ReplyDelete
  84. If you have deleted the post, perhaps you can look at the URL and try to guess what to put in a new post title from the URL like for example for this post
    http://www.bloggertipsandtricks.com/2009/08/recover-accidentally-deleted-post-how.html
    I would guess that putting "Recover accidentally deleted post - how" would be what I have to put in the post title in order to get that URL back.

    ReplyDelete
  85. one more thank you from me! Method 1 alone has helped me recovered my accidentally deleted post. :)

    I deleted a post on my site 365microstoryproject.blogspot.com - managed to find it and repost it but its now posted on the wrong day and as the site is meant to be daily it looks all kinds of wrong, any idea how to get it back to the original date?
    thanks

    My posted post on May 12, 2011 was gone. I don't remember deleting it but I just cant find it. The post title should be "Happy Mother's Day". http://emeryn-selina.blogspot.com/2011/05/happy-mother's-day.html .

    I tried many suggested ways but it doesn't seems to work. I saw my setting has a FULL (Allow Blog Feed) but how do i go about it? Thanks

  100. Please help! I have a private blog - not password protected, but just not searchable. I accidentally deleted 2 or 3 posts yesterday from my iphone and I can't get them back. My blog doesn't have that many page views, so when I tried the web cache solution it didn't work. Can you help?

    ReplyDelete
  101. I have recently created a non-searchable blog but I managed to find it via a Google search box so perhaps you can still use the methods outlined in this post

    ReplyDelete
  102. Thanks. I love Google. That's how I found you. I was able to recover my blog and my post by following your instructions.

  104. I have been working on a post as a draft for several days and was almost done with it and wanted to see if i could put a graph in the post. It did not work right so I clicked on the part where I thought the graph was and pressed delete and the whole 70 pages of my post was wiped out. This has happened to me twice before where I tree to delete something and the whole post disappears. What is going on? Is their anyway to get it back or do I have to start over!!! The Title of the post is still there. It's called News About the Fed Banking and Finance.

    Also how do you get back to me or I to you? Do you answer me directly by email or do I go back into this site? I have no clue.

  105. The methods of trying to recover a deleted post are all in this post. The part about clicking the back button may help.

    ReplyDelete
  113. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! This was a lifesaver. I actually could not use any of your methods precisely because there was no cache of my blog anywhere to be found. However, I happened to have that post opened on a safari page on my phone. I copied it all, emailed it to myself and then pasted it right back it. WHEW!! I would not have thought of that without reading your post.

  114. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RELIEF! I'm currently developing a blog for my geography coursework on the great firewall of china, www.thegreatfirewallofchina.blogspot.com, and was creating a LOOOOONG post, when my finger slipped and I pressed ctrl+w :/ Then, through the desperation, I came here. THANK YOU EVER SO MUCH!!!! I recovered it!!

  117. I literally just deleted a post about 1 hour ago. The URL is http://alittlebitofgreensunshine.blogspot.com/2012/03/49-days-later.html
    Are you able to assist me? I deleted it on my iphone...

  118. This was a great help! #3 was a great reminder about caching. I was able to copy and paste a Google cached version back into Blogger, and I didn't have to even change anything!

    Thanks so much!

    1. Yes, the same comment from me too. #3 solved my problem when I realized, a month later, that I had deleted a post.

      Thanks a bunch.

  119. I hope you would be able to help. I run a blog in HUngarian www.benbandita.com and after writing each posts I export the blog and import it under www.benbandit-en.blogspot.co.uk, then I delete all the imported posts and translate the new post to English and publish it. In that way i have a bilingual blog. I had. As the new interface of blogger deleted all posts not just my imported ones. So in a matter of seconds I have lost two years worth of English posts.... I backed up the HUngarian version (as I was always exporting them) but lost all the English blog. (I have not deleted the blog so I cant use the undelete method) and I have not just lost 1 post so finding old cached versions of posts doesnt help.
    Would you have any advice for me?
    Your help is appreciated

    ReplyDelete
  120. You used such a convoluted way to create a bilingual blog and so many deleted posts. I don't have a solution to offer. Or perhaps the way back machine?

  121. Someone hacked into my blog and deleted every single post 4 days ago. How do I get them back? This is a blog that has over 10,000 views. www.therea-lifetimes.blogspot.com

  122. Get blog back or get posts back?

  123. Thank you very much! Accidentally deleted a rather long post I wrote today and was quite disheartended at the thought of having to write it all again. I managed to use method 1 to recover it, excellent advice, thanks!

  124. Thank you so much for these tips! With your help I was able to retrieve a post I had deleted on accident. I am so happy to have found your blog!

  125. I tried all of these, and can't get any of them to work. I do have my blog feed set to full - any further instructions on that one? My blog is huffreadsstuff.blogspot.com and the deleted draft was called "You're STILL pumping II?"

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    ReplyDelete
  126. Thanks for your response. None of them have worked for me. I'm so frustrated, but I guess I need to write the whole thing over. It was due last week! Thanks again.

  130. Hi,

    I was wondering if you could help me with a problem; I have accidentally duplicated the text from one post into another post and then clicked "Publish" whilst in the editor.

    I was wondering if there was any way to get the original text back?

    I have tried all of the methods above but to no avail.

    Many, many thanks if you can help!
    James

    ReplyDelete
  131. You can try googling for the post in the Internet and try to find the cached post.

    James, there is another post - Recover accidentally deleted post Part 2 with original permalink and comments. Did you read through that?

    ReplyDelete
  132. I am trying to categorize my readers according to country. Which country are you from, James? (no need to answer if you don't want to)

    ReplyDelete
  133. Hi Peter, thanks for the reply.

    I have read through the second post and have tried the methods there (including searching for the cached post) but I couldn't get it to work.

    The blog was private until after I made the above error, so I don't know if these 'external' methods will work? I was wondering if there was any internal way of recovering the text? I believe there is a function similar to this in Wordpress, but can't find much about it for Blogspot.

    And I am from Scotland, UK. Hope that helps.

    Thanks again,
    James

  140. OK so if you delete you blog post by accident the best thing to do is to:
    1. create new post and open it;
    2. Once opened copy the page url - "http://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=XXYourBlogIdXX#editor/target=post;postID=XXYourPostIdXX;onPublishedMenu=allposts;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=0;src=postname"
    you will find 2 important variables inside the URL string: "postID" and "blogID". "PostId" is the one that you want to replace with the "postId" from your blog post that you deleted by accident, once you modified postId just copy and paste it to you browser URL field and hit enter - you should see your deleted post showing up.
    3. copy and paste the content and you good to go.
    4. if you don't have your id of your deleted blog post; most likely you will be able to find it inside your dashboard Stats->Traffic Sources: and inside Referring URLs you should be able to locate the url if you or anyone else visited that page- just copy the postId of the url;
    Hope it helps.
