Hi ranjitbidwal

I am sorry to hear that your work was saved without you intending it to be. We do not autosave as a rule. However, we now do so when switching you switch styles. The reason for this is to allow people to preserve their custom banners and backgrounds and other edits when trying out different styles. However, I do understand that this can come as an unwelcome surprise if you had changes on the page you did not intend to save. I will speak to our developers about adding a warning message with a cancel button.

Unfortunately there is no way to revert to an earlier version of the site, so I am sorry that I don't have better news for you at this time.

I've suggested this one before; but this is a great add-on to get (if you're using Firefox). It frequently saves anything you type, so if you change or loose some work you can pick a point in time to go back to.

It won't fix things if you're doing everything using text widgets, but if you use the HTML editor, it can recover text from a few hours ago.

If you're trying out new styles it's always a good idea to publish your website before switching; then you can look at the published site to work out how to make it the same again.

This has just happened to me using the new site builder.

My custom banners and headings have not been saved! Everything has switched to a theme I do not want. This is a massive blow as my site is a commercial one and will take weeks to redevelop!

Hi tim,

It sounds like you tried out a new style. If you revert back to your previous style all of your banners and settings will be restored.
