    Post on my website mysteriously deleted. How can I figure out what happened?

    Hey guys, so an older popular post on my website disappeared. Links I had posted directing to it on social media would end up taking you to an error page saying that address didn't exist anymore. 

     

    When I logged in through the back end and saw my post list, it wasn't there anymore. And there is not "deleted post" folder on wordpress that I know of..

     

    I do manage the webiste along with another user, Maybe he deleted it?

     

    Is there a way to somehow check the history of what happened to that post?

     

    I have wordfence installed don't know if that helps

     

    Also, is there a way to recover a deleted post.

     

    Thank you so much!

    @Nickp15 I assume you're using Wordpress? Did you check the "trash?"

    yes Wordpress.

     

    This sounds promising, but  can't find a thrash link anywhere on wordpress??

     

    Thanks for taking the time!
