I found an online tutorial for customizing Hatch right out of the box. I do not have the same menu's or choices. It was published on youtube three weeks ago (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3n6748vEGrY). No footer options, no way to place pictures on the front page as a grid with linkable thumbs or a title in a rectangle on the bottom right like the preview shows. No plugins menu, no "visit site" in the drop down under my username. I never got a plain page to alter, just a blank page with "sorry, nothing found here so far. Maybe you can search for it."
I have been looking through wordpress/and the menu tree's to find the answer for hours and it's been futile. It looks nothing like what has been advertised for "free."
I am totally confused and exasperated. Please Help!!!
The blog I need help with is mdesignworks.wordpress.com.
