How To Restore Permanently Deleted Posts From WordPress
WordPress offers a variety of options for recovering deleted information.
Method 1: Using Trash Option
To recover deleted pages and posts, WordPress offers a built-in functionality called Trash, but it only functions with recently deleted stuff. The content that is deleted remains in the Trash for 30 days.
Step 1: Go to Posts in your WordPress admin panel after logging in.
Step 2: You can access all of your deleted posts by clicking Trash.
Step 3: There will be two choices under the post you choose to restore: Restore and Delete Permanently.
Step 4: The post will be removed from the list of items in the Trash folder when you choose Restore. Return to Posts; you’ll see it there.
Method 2: Using Backup Restore
Frequently, posts that aren’t in the Trash folder have been permanently erased. Following are a few of the usual causes of this circumstance:
- A user chooses to ‘Delete Permanently’.
- A user deletes the main administrator account which leads to the deletion of pages or posts created under the admin username.
- Hackers access your site and delete pages or posts.
- During an update or alteration to your website, a few posts mysteriously vanish. Even if it happens infrequently,
In this situation, restoring a site backup is an option.
Restoring Deleted Posts from Backup in WordPress
Restoring your website’s backup is the simplest technique to recover WordPress deleted blog content. You can quickly restore your backup with a few clicks if you’ve utilized a backup provider like JetPack or CodeGuard. You can use cPanel or contact your site host if you haven’t made a backup copy.
Note: To make sure your backup copy has all the content you need before restoring it, test it on a separate server or subdomain. This applies to both the posts you’ve recently deleted and the fresh material you’ve just posted to your website. The more recent improvements to your site are likely to be lost if you switch to an outdated backup copy.
Find your last backup (tested) and click on the Restore option.
What If You Don’t Have Backup?
There is still a slim chance that you can recover your deleted posts via the Wayback Machine or Archive.org if you don’t have a backup.
Method 3: Using Wayback Machine Or Archive.org
A non-profit organization called Internet Archive is home to millions of free books, movies, songs, programs, websites, and other media.
Step 1: Visit Archive.org
Step 2: Look up the website from which you wish to retrieve posts. By retrieving the website chronology from the year of its initial introduction, it will gather online archives of the domain.
Step 3: To view the website’s content as of a specific date, click on one of the dates that the archives platform has made available.
Step 4: Locate your deleted posts in the archives, copy the material, and then create a new post using it.
To be safe, you should always make a backup of your blog before making any changes.
