Help, admin! My practice log has vanished!

Posts: 342 Join Date: 11/15/19 Recent Posts
Hello Linda or any other admin,

My practice log has suddenly vanished! When I try to access my own posts, it says that it is in the "Recycle bin". Is it possible to get it back?

All the best and thank you in advance,
​​​​​​​Niels

Hey, it is 100% unclear where the recycling bin is, and all admin control panels I can see don't help me with this one. Will have to ask for help.

Hi Daniel,

This link may help, if you haven't seen it:

https://help.liferay.com/hc/en-us/articles/360017893432-Using-the-Recycle-Bin

​​​​​​​It's the upper left button that opens the left menu (The one containing Design, Site Builder etc menu items), then Recycle Bin menu item, and then click on the Recycle Bin, and if the post is there, there should an item for it in the right section, with an overflow button (3 dots), that has a Restore menu item.

I was able to restore it thanks to Siavash's directions. I was surprised to see my own log there too, so I restored that as well. I could see who had removed them and I'm certain that he didn't intend to. I was relieved to see that it was not my cats this time. Maybe this interface is more accident prone than the last one? That's unfortunate.

I can't verify this from any personal encounter or so. I think I have seen others use the pronoun he, but I'm actually not sure. Hopefully, Shargrol will correct me if I'm using a dispreferred pronoun.

Shargrol is a "he" for sure.

FYI - I think I understand why those logs were deleted. I thought I was deleting "subscriptions" from my subscriptions page... but instead I must have deleted the whole thread. It wasn't obvious to me at all, so that's kinda scary (!)

For a moment I thought the universe was teaching me yet another lesson: A (virtual) zen master, not hitting me on the head with a stick, but throwing (virtual) me into the (virtual) bardo. Didn't wake up, though emoticon

Why assume it wasn't a message from the universe? Isn't everything?  emoticon

Wow, Shargrol threw us into the bardo! I feel like a character in Castaneda's books. emoticon
