Can't edit my site

    Hi, it has been a while since I have tried to update my site (theotherwhitehouse.com) and when I log in, I have no options to create new posts or edit previous ones. In fact it says I have no blogs, yet the site still functions normally from a visitors perspective. My dashboard seems to be missing some important options. Please advise!!!

  2. We might have a spelling issue here

    theotherwhitehouse.com - is parked at Godaddy

    Do you really mean:

    http://whitehorsestudios.wordpress.com/ ?

    If so here is the log-in

    https://whitehorsestudios.wordpress.com/wp-login.php

    whitehousestudios.wordpress.com/ - does not exist

    thanks for taking the time to reply.

    This is the site with the issue:
    http://www.theotherwhitehouse.ca/wordpress

  4. You are using a strange domain forwarding and masking - that is what is messing up your access

    Here is your log-in: https://theotherwhitehouse.wordpress.com/wp-login.php

    You should be Mapping your domain - that works better with search engines also I think

    Unfortunately that login is not solving the problem. It still says I have no blogs! I believe we did let our godaddy hosting service expire and then renewed and it has been since then that I have encountered this issue.

  6. I flagged this for the staff -

    However http://www.theotherwhitehouse.ca/wordpress - is a WordPress.ORG install type of name - that would be installed on Godaddy -

    however the blog displayed in the window is a WordPress.COM blog (that I gave you the log-in for) -

    For more on the difference: http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    Thanks, I really appreciate the help.

  8. You be welcome

  9. auxclass is right, the domain forwarding is blocking your ability to access the blog like you normally would. If you want everything to worth without issue, you'll need to map the domain: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    However, please note that your whitehousestudios account does not have access to the blog in question.

    If you have lost access to that WordPress.com account, please visit https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword and click "Need More Help?" if necessary.
