Post not populating front page

    I've added a new post to my blog and it is not populating the front page. I looked through the tutorials/support and made sure all the settings were correct, the post is still not publishing to the front page?

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

  2. I think you are adding pages and not posts. Is it your intention to have pages and not posts?

    I have 3 pages that provide various info.
    In addition to that, I'd like my daily blog post to populate the front page, with the "Pages" links at the bottom which it does with the URL "http://mckaymotoworks.wordpress.com/2012/09/20/site-has-been-updated" but not "http://mckaymotoworks.wordpress.com"

    How do I set the main URL to display my daily post? Not the extended URL with /date?

  4. Sorry i am completely lost as to what you are trying to do, so i'll bump this up in the hope that timethief, or someone else may be able to help you.

  5. Read this before going any farther:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

  6. The most recently published post on your front page is:
    http://mckaymotoworks.wordpress.com/2012/09/20/site-has-been-updated/

  7. Pages we bloggers create are static and that means they do not automatically update. They sit outside of the blog structure and you cannot post to multiple pages in any blog. There is only one main page for posts in a blog and all posts will show 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.

    Ok, it's populated now, how long does it usually take?
    I guess I wasn't clear as to what I was expecting.

    I expected the "site has been updated" to be on the front page "http://mckaymotoworks.wordpress.com" instantly, but I take it there is a delay as indicated above?
