How do I edit a text mistake on a post?

  1. I posted something today and noticed a mistake. I'm having difficulty correcting it. I wrote the hyphenated word drum-role. It should read drum-roll.

    The blog I need help with is ldlagarinowordnovice.wordpress.com.

  2. You can edit the post and change that.
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts
    hover over the title of the post and click the edit link

  3. When I edited a post - to correct a spelling - the post was re-issued! Is there any way to edit/correct old posts without re-distributing them?

    Thanks for any help

  4. Hmmm, it shouldn't do that unless you change the date.

  5. So, I publish a post, then realise it has the wrong category. I edit the post, change the category and then click "update"? And it will not re-post?

  6. No, it shouldn't.

  7. It seems to have worked. I have no idea what happened last time, but I seem to have got it right now.

    Many thanks!
