How can I get my Pages to display on the Navigation Bar?

    The Pages I've created don't display on the navigation bar, sometimes they do but most of the time they aren't even visible.
    Specifically, I have two extra pages in edition to Home and About called Trainer and Trainees. They are both the parent of other pages, however they can't be reached because they are invisible.

    Please help.

    The blog I need help with is 3skinnywhiteguys.wordpress.com.

  2. Are you using a Custom Menu? If so, you'll have to add those links by hand to the menu.

    Its not that I haven't created pages. The pages are active and have information in them. Its just that whenever I edit something on the pages, the link on the navigational bar will appear for a little while. But it'll disappear soon after. Completely gone, information is still there in the admin section. But the link is just gone.

  4. I am having the same issue, after i've created the pages I see them for two minutes then when I come back I only have the original HOME and ABOUT pages... help? I do not have a custom menu

  5. What are the URLs of the pages in question?

  6. Troubleshooting – My Pages aren’t appearing
    They must be public pages – not private.
    Public – The page will be visible to everyone.
    Protected – The page is protected with a password you set. Only people who have the password can view a protected page.
    Private – Pages are only visible to blog Editors and Administrators. Private pages are not visible in Reader, feeds, or in any search. A page can be private without being password protected.

    I see your pages and I see that you don't comprehend that static pages we bloggers create will not automatically update.

    Please create three categories (Ben, Lucas, Phil) to assign to posts not pages. Then create a custom menu.

    There is only one main page for 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) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. Though there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page, we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page. We organize posts not pages by assigning categories to them.

    Please see the entries that follow:

    Adding static pages to a custom menu. Note: These are not category pages and they do not automatically update. They are for content that rarely changes. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#adding-pages
