On my wordpress dashboard I noticed a large number of past posts were missing.

All (708) | Published (386) | Drafts (17) | Pending (8) | Private (1) | Trash (3) - Total 412

Our items are custom post types in wordpress terminology. There is nothing in our theme which manage these statuses and count items. We use wordpress functions to add and edit items. So I believe this is some wordpress issue.

I've no idea what happened.

1) I checked the logs - nothing found

2) I deactivated all plugins - no change

3) I checked the DB and the past posts are in there?
