This Tech-Recipe is inspired by what happened yesterday. So when I published a new article, I saw that my previous article didn’t have a read more tag. I quickly hit the edit button. While I was adding the read more tag, I accidentally deleted the rest of the article and hit update.How to Restore a WORDPRESS Post If You Accidentally Hit Update is a quick and easy way of doing so.

Normally when you hit update, the previous article is replaced by the new edit. I tried searching the article on the internet, in the meta-descriptions the same content was appearing. But when I was opening it in WordPress editor, it didn’t show any content. This was very worrisome.

There’s an undo button but it doesn’t work once you have hit the update button. There were a few solutions on the internet like you can only do it by updating the whole blog from a backup.

If you haven’t hit update then it’s easy to go back and format the rest but once you hit update there’s only one easy way to restore it.
