Need help? Check out our Support site, then


Why won't my post show up on the web site?

  1. My post won't show up on the web site. I have a static home page. Homepage title is listed twice in addition to being listed. Sit search will not work

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

  2. WordPress.com blogs are all hosted on this platform. If your website can draw from an RSS Feed then all you need is the RSS Feed URL for your blog posts. It is http://replacemoneycare.wordpress.com/feed/

    We provide support only for free hosted WordPress.COM blogs and not for WordPress.org software installs. If your website is equipped to draw from an RSS feed the URL I provided is all you need. If it's not equipped to draw from an RSS feed then we do not provide support for that here.

    In that case, if you don't have a username account at WordPress.ORG click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.

  3. I am starting out with an ordinary free wordpress blog that we are supposed to be able to get up" in minutes". I am not with .org
    Replacemoneycare.wordpress.com. does not say" .org".

    I followed the instructions from books on how to publish a blog. The dash board says I have one blog and a page. It lists the one blog. I can view it from the dashboard. Nothing comes up on the blog site. I do have a static page and that is all I get in double or triple.

    I can't believe this RSS feed thing isn't there right from the start.

    I went to http://replacemoneycare.wordpress.com/feed/. as you said. What am I supposed to do with that? There is a drop down of choices. What am I supposed to do with that?

    I can't be the only newbie who can't figure out what you are talking about.

  4. Have you gone through http://learn.wordpress.com yet?

    You have a static home page; what page have you designated the blog posts page? You can find that out on the Settings->General page.

  5. I followed the instructions from books on how to publish a blog.

    I find no value in using books because our software and dashboard are often changed and no sooner is a book published and the content is outdated. I use the support docs here http://support.wordpress.com because the support documentation is continually updated.

    On the bottom of your Admin page you will find a link to the step by step Learn WordPress.com blogging Tutorial prepared by Staff. http://learn.wordpress.com/

    I see only one post in your blog here http://replacemoneycare.wordpress.com/2014/04/05/economic-hurricane-warning-2/
    It is in fact the only published Post on the blog as evidence n=by the RSS Feed because that's where all published Posts appear.
    http://replacemoneycare.wordpress.com/feed/

    If you are referring to any other posts you created and they are not appearing on the blog as yet then they are drafts and you have to edit them and publish them. Go to > Dashboard > Posts > All Posts and hover over the draft post title and then click the Edit link and proceed. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/ After you have edited the post then click the big blue Publish button in the top right hand corner of the page.

    Sorry about the overlapping response. I hope you have a good weekend. :) I'm being a nice guy again and working it this time but have decided not to do that in the future.

    You hit the nail on the head, but it appears to me that the instructions are wrong. There is something about designating a blank page as the blog page. The way to go seems to be not to post any blogs. First, post one or two PAGES. Then designate one as a static home page if you want one and then another as the blog page. I still can't figure out how to use a blank page as its asks for a named page as the first blog page. This is so simple, but its chaos in obsolete books and even online instructions. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

    thanks for your help. I learned the hard way how books and even web sites become obsolete. I still don't know what an RSS feed is. Maybe someday. I did manage to find a way to get a blog page although the WordPress instructions weren't perfectly right. My blog is on the roll. The world will never be the same!
