New Published Post doesn't appear as New post

  1. I have been working on a post for 3 weeks, and when I published it. it didn't appear as a new post on the front page. Nor is it on the sidebar listing. It is published, but it seems to appear back between others that were posted 3 weeks ago.

    It is mostly photos, so to cut and paste into a new form would be horrendous.

    What else can I do? I made it sticky, but it won't follow in order with the other ones. No one can see that a new post is up because it isn't in the sidebar.

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

  2. Can you just edit the date in the post edit section? Seems I recall that from another post I read.

  3. OK, will see if that works. I just checked it and the date that shows is Jan. 3

    Thanks.

  4. We really can't help you until you give us a link to your blog, starting with http, and the name of the post. Preferably a direct link.

  5. OK, I changed the date and it changed on the front of the post. It still doesn't show up in the sidebar. And now in fact, I couldn't find it when I clicked on Edit Post. It didn't show up there either and it has been there. I had it on sticky so it would appear on the front of the blog, and I wanted to change that to see if it would be first by itself.

  6. Good grief..now that I changed the date...I didn't see the time. It now has the correct date on the front of the blog, but in the quick edit, it shows the time as 00:02... I don't know if that will make a difference or not as to whether it is showing or not. Should I change that to present time?

    I found the post in editing by using search. I have no idea where it really is. As it isn't appearing in the number one post as the latest one.

  7. I took it off sticky and it doesn't show up on the front page nor in the sidebar. The time above should have read 0009 00:02

  8. I think you need to edit the permalink.

    See where it says wtpotus.wordpress.com/0009/02/03/a-compilation-of-potus-mug-shots/

    I would suggest editing it to 2010

  9. Where do I go to edit it? Quick edit?

    Edit it to read 2010/02/03

  10. Is that going to mess up all of the other posts? I guess I can check to see what the last post that was done correctly looks like.

  11. That's a good idea. You want to parallel the structure in the permalink. And no, you have to go to full Edit. So look at the post on the blog and click the Edit link that you see there or on your Admin Bar.

  12. I do believe it is now fixed. Yes, the date and time does make a difference in Quick Edit. One must use military time also. I didn't, and used 01 when it should have been 13:..so it looked like I published it 12 hours ago. I changed it again and it was then correct.

    So all is well, thanks for your help . This was a new learning experience.

  13. Great, glad you got it working. Lots of people have requested that the permalink automatically be the time the post goes live, not the time it's begun, but WP.com doesn't see it that way.
