Entry or Home page

  1. I keep trying to create an entry page after having made the mistakes of first using "post" to introduse the blog, then moving along to using the "about" page to create an introduction, and now going to the "Write Page" thingy and when I press "Publish" after having saved the page It goes to the entry page and there is an error message which says

    Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here."

    I've tried using 3 different browsers thinking that maybe I needed to use IE. Nothing works.
    I know it is probably something very simple but I can't figure it out.
    Is there any kind of tutorial or help pages other than the FAQ?
    thanks

  2. What you want to do is to have an entry page at the front of your blog? You need to go to Dashboard > Options > Reading and choose the front page there. Once you've selected the front page and posts page, it should work fine. Hope that helps.

  3. OK thanks very much, that worked.

  4. One thing to remember is that having a static front page will reduce your google juice (search engine ranking) since google pays more attention to that page than the other pages.
