Confluence lost two days of work

Michel Arboi March 27, 2023

It was "unpusblished" as it was a draft, but I "closed" the page after each major edit.
Everything is gone and I am furious.
What should I do? (apart switching to Libreoffice for my future documents)

It really lost my unpublished page and I am quite sure I did not delete anything. It did it again yesterday, with less impact though as I now "publish" every minor edit.
I suspect a bug with the last Firefox (111.0) or maybe a conflict with some extension.

Hi @Michel Arboi ,

usually draft pages are not deleted by confluence. Please take a look to the following similar question https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/Clicked-Close-on-a-Draft-and-Lost-My-Changes-Any-way-to-get-them/qaq-p/1577861

Hello @Michel Arboi 

When you use the Close button on a page that has never been published, you are saving changes to a Draft copy of that page.

You should be able to find that page under the Recent > Drafts menu option.

The only way a draft should end up deleted is if you intentionally delete it.
