Pages have gone after changing templates!

I recently changed my template a couple times and played around with some of them and tried to match my header with the one I eventually chose. As I was doing this I was saving my site and previewing it in my browser. When I decided I was happy with the look of the template and header, I applied them to all pages and then went to go to the other pages to see what they looked like. I had a few other pages set up with content in them and now there are only stock "About Us" and "Contact" pages.
Am I able to get those other pages back or do I have to re-do them?

Hi Phillipa,

Is your site published? Could you post your site's URL so that we can take a look and find out what has happened?

It could be that you've chosen a style where the menu does not support the amount of pages that you have and they have disappeared into the body of the page. If you click on the Site Manager tab in the Sitebuilder, you will be able to see the complete list of your pages.

Hi Marije,
No my site isn't published. I wanted to finish it all properly before publishing it. My pages aren't in the Site Manager either.
It doesn't matter though, I'll just do it again. There wasn't a lot I had done so it should be fine.
Thank you.

We're sorry to hear that this happened. Hopefully, it won't take you long to redo them. Please always be sure to save your work along the way!

Phillipa, I'm sorry that you lost your work, but glad that you'll be able to reconstitute it without too much difficulty. I wonder if you would be willing to say what template you were using? You have said that you were saving your work as you went along -- which seems to mean that anyone is in danger of losing their work by experimenting with this template. Suppose you had 40+ pages, as many of us have!!! This really sounds like something that the staff, and possibly the engineering team, should look into.
