Original Request:
Hi, fabulous DW people!

I tried editing an entry in my community PITHFIC. I know community entries generally can't have their date edited, but I had odd luck with it once, so I tried again. Except now the entire entry is gone. One day (Dec 1 2010, I think) shows 2 entries on the calendar view, but when I click on that day, only one (the one I didn't try to edit). If I use next day/previous day I get Day 29 and Day 31, but no sign of Day 30.

Is that post retrievable or has my stupidity banished it forever?

More information: I still have the data from that post elsewhere, so if it's not possible to resurrect the post itself, is there any way I can have a blank post made on that day so I could edit in the data?

Hi pith,

Unfortunately, it is not possible to date entries in a community out of order due to system limitations. If it happened once, then that was a bug, and should not have happened. I'm sorry for any problems this may cause.
