Lost my "Home" tab and can't rearrange the other tabs?

  1. This is a blog for an HTML class I'm taking in university. I missed our last class so I was trying to catch up with some of the stuff, adding a widget and some other things. Now, suddenly, the "Home" tab that WAS at the top is gone. And the remaining tabs have rearranged themselves from the way I had them and I can't get them back, even after changing the order numbers around.

    It should be in this order: Home, Other, Lexicon, About Me, Contact Me
    (as per how my professor wants it)

    Help please!

    The blog I need help with is prow230bb.wordpress.com.

  2. And the blog is prow230bb.wordpress.com

  3. I clearly see the Home Page tab ie. the front page of the blog.

    There are two ways to establish page order and creating a custom menu is the superior approach.
    conventional approach > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/page-attributes/#order

    Custom menu approach
    You are in charge of what appears in a custom menu. You choose which to display and which to hide and you choose the order.

    Custom Menu Troubleshooting – My pages are in the wrong order
    Check the sub-pages themselves to see if you have established a Parent page and child page “hierarchical structure” in the page attributes module. Remove if required. Also remove any “order” numbers you have assigned that may conflict with the order you are creating by dropping and dragging. Or simply change them so they are the same order as you establish in the menu. Establish consistency – problem solved.

    Custom Menu 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 Blog Surfer, feeds, or in any search. A page can be private without being password protected.
