Setting up a blog on a wordpress website

  1. Hi Everyone!

    Apologies for what is going to appear as an incredibly dumb question.

    I have recently had a wordpress website created for me by a webdesigner and now I have decided that I would like a blog to go with the site. Now, im new to blogs but I have a reasonably good understanding of how wordpress works as I have updated the website quite a bit myself as well as adding plugins. So my question is, how would I go about setting up the blog?

    So far, I have added a new page and strangely enough called it 'blog'. How do I setup this page so that it looks like a standard blog but with the look of the rest of the site?

    I know this is a very stupid question as im asking how to create a blog using wordpress but any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you very much for your time!
    Will

  2. Good day to you,
    I’m sorry to report that you have accidentally posted to the wrong support forum. We cannot help you here at WordPress.com with that site as it’s not being hosted by WordPress.com and we run on different software. This is the correct forum for your software http://wordpress.ORG/support/ and if you haven't already down so you will need to register a WordPress.org username account on the top right hand corner of that page. Then you can post to those support forums.
    For clarity read > WordPress.com vs WordPress.org: The Differences
    http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
    Best wishes with your site.

  3. Ok, apologies but how do you know what my website is?

  4. I have updated the website quite a bit myself as well as adding plugins.

    There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we cannot install plugins ie. it was an educated guess. :)

  5. Sorry I created a different account to the one I use to edit my site.

    My actual site is selandscapeconstruction.co.uk

  6. Right and that's not a free hosted WordPress.com blog. You need to post to http://wordpress.org/support/

  7. Ok got ya. Sorry

  8. Best wishes. :)
