I was editing an article that I created. I started the page on my laptop and when I went to continue on my desktop, none of my text was there. I remember saving the page, but nothing showed up when I tried to edit it again. My description of the article was saved, so I think there might be a previous version of the page somewhere. The page hasn't been published yet, but I want to restore an older version with my previous edits. Is there a way to do this?

If it's the Heaven Plan page, the old version is gone because it went to the moderation queue and a mod rejected it. It's better to create pages in your user page or Sandbox before publishing them.

How would I create the page on my user page or Sandbox?

Click the Sandbox link in my post above, and you can create it that way.

So I can create the page like normal on Sandbox, and then when I want to publish it, what should I do?

Yeah, when you want to publish it you would just copy and paste the code from the sandbox onto its own page.

Where is the code that I need to copy?

When you click "Edit source", you just copy whatever is there.

The Heaven Plan page you have in your sandbox is too short to be its own page though.

Yeah, the page is a WIP. Just making sure I know what to do when I'm done. Thanks!
