Lost "views" after editing Answered

I edited my Portable Tool Box Grill this morning.

After republishing,  my total view count dropped 22(plus) thousand, the same amount of views on that Instructable.

Can I get a "fix" on this please?

Ouch.

Next time, just hit "save", rather than "publish".

Well, maybe I misworded things. I hit the edit button and saved the changes. At no time did I UNpublish, if that makes a difference?

I've encountered disappearing text but never lost photos from my library. OUCH, indeed! 8-/

If you "republished" it then the system thinks you're starting something new and everything gets reset. After editing, just hit "save" and not "publish".

When I look at that project it shows as published August 6, 2012 with 22,066 views. Is that correct?

I'm pretty sure I just clicked "save changes".

At any rate, the numbers are back and I thank you very much!!!!!!!!

When in pain I make errors more often.
But it helps to maintain picture files on my HD. ;)
