edit landing page

  1. Where did the option to edit my landing page go? It is not in my pages menu as far as I can see.
    Blog url: http://maracumulous.wordpress.com/

  2. Are you refferring to the front page of your blog. If so then it's for your posts and you cannot "edit" it.

    Pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ are static and are for content that rarely changes. They sit outside of the blog structure and you cannot post to multiple pages in any blog. There is only one main page for posts http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/ in a blog and all posts will display on the main blog page. There is no way to exclude posts from the main posts (blog) page.

    The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. If you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page “Welcome” for your site and a “Blog” page for posts.
    Choice 1 static front page
    Choice 2 running page for all posts on front page
    If you choose a static front page then you have to create two pages as I said above. After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/ and make the designation change and click “save changes”.

  3. Thank you timethief! I guess what I was trying to express was not that I am trying to alter blog posts but that on the front page that is static I cannot access where to insert a photo. Ultimately, the featured image box wasn't accepting my pic because it wasn't the correct dimensions.
    THANK YOU!

  4. You're welcome. :)
