Published page not found

    I'm starting to build out my website, and published a page, "Attorney", which is at the top level of the site. It's URL is http://jeannebonneylaw.wordpress.com/attorney. When I click "View page" in the WordPress editor or plug the URL into a browser I get a "Page not found" error, however WordPress says the page is published.
    Blog url: http://jeannebonneylaw.wordpress.com/

  2. http://jeannebonneylaw.wordpress.com/ is a private blog and we Volunteers cannot view it. To change the visibility to public see here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/
    It's sounds like you have deleted the Hello World placeholder post and that created a 404 page not found error on the front page. http://en.support.wordpress.com/not-found/ Be aware that the error message will disappear as soon as you publish a post, not a page. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    Have you set a static front page on the blog? And is this "attorney" page now the front page? http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/

    Aha, thanks timethief! I mistakenly set the Post page to the Attorney page when changing themes, and I had deleted the initial placeholder post. Huge thanks!

  5. Hooray! My guess was correct and you have resolved this. :)
