Why aren't my recent posts listed under the heading 'Recent Posts'?

  1. Up to posting my 41st post, the posts are displayed under 'Recent Posts'. My posts #42 & #43 are being displayed - in red - at the top of the screen along with the heading 'About This Blog'. Why aren't posts #42 & #43 shown under 'Recent Posts'?

  3. Do the titles show? If not, it could be because you used the New Post button on the grey Admin bar instead of going to your Dashboard Add New Post menu item. Unfortunately this is a known bug; it creates Asides, not real posts. You will have to make sure you're using a theme that supports post formats, edit the posts to switch format to Post, and then update. You can switch back to your old theme afterwards.

  4. raincoaster...I appreciate your speedy comeback...and...Yes...the titles do show. I will look into applying your suggestion(s). Thank you.

  5. Maybe the menu you have selected is not a special post, but special pages. Pages will appear above the menu and in the recent pages, not in recent posts. Sorry if it is not clear, what is the title of the post # 42.?. If # 42 was MASTER COMMANDANT RICHARD SOMERS – that is the pages.

  6. sulitnih...thanks for your reply...but...I found the solution. To make sure your post is posted to the 'Recent Posts' column...one must make sure to use the 'Posts [Add New]' LINK at the top of the page.

  7. Ok, congratulations you have found the solution.
    To be more precise in the future we have to know the difference and point between "posts" and "pages"...
