About page?? Newbie added my story…not showing!

    Just started setting up my blog today. Followed the basic tour for set up of homepage. When doing so it tells to add another page to get a static homepage. When doing so it automatically called my second page About. I want to keep it so added my story. Published it, but can’t see it when I click on the about tab… What do I do now? It is available if I search my story, but not located in the About area.
    My blog is http://moetivatedbymmem2013.wordpress.com/

    The blog I need help with is moetivatedbymmem2013.wordpress.com.



    What exact page do you want your blog to open on? What are the URLs of all the pages you’re talking about? Are you using the pages widget or a theme with a tabbed header? Are you using a custom menu?


    Thanks for responding raincoaster. O.k. In my euphoric high world I would like a home page that lists all my different top tab pages that I will be able to blog about different subjects. Maybe even a short blurb about what can be seen to get the reader to want to know more. I listed them in my story info that was to be found when a reader would hit the static About page tab. Unfortunately when you hit that particular tab it says Nothing Found and gives a search box. Please help… Tried to go back, step by step, used YouTube and tried to follow… I am so excited to start, but can’t even get in the door :(



    Okay, then what you want is a straightforward BLOG that opens onto the blog posts page and has a custom header that links to various category pages. Forget about static pages and follow the instructions here http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/06/30/posts-on-pages/

    For bonus points, use a theme that shows the category display.

    Then, just blog normally, creating new posts on the Dashboard Posts->New Post page, and use tags and categories correctly.


    Yes! Thank you… Now my question is: it looks like I have the home page and the About page mixed up. So I went in and cut out all pages including the about page. Created a new page called My Story. Published it! Yeah me… Then went to view page … Their was the text I used, but unfortunately there was no header tab called my story and the about tab and home tab were there… So when clicking on the about it stated Nothing Found
    It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps searching can help.
    When clicking home tab it states Nothing Found
    It looks like nothing was found at this location. Perhaps it was there, but now it’s gone. Maybe try one of the links below or a search?

    Try looking in the monthly archives.

    Question… Why is the about page still there? Where is the my story page and does the home page look correct?

    Ugh! Thank you for holding my hand! And where do I go from here?



    Put the Recent Posts widget in the sidebar. And go to Settings->General and tell me what page you’ve set the blog to open on. It won’t show anything on the landing page if you’ve set it to open on the blog posts and you haven’t made any posts.


    Under settings>general there wasn’t any option you directed me to find. So I went down each setting and stopped at reading link. Here is what it says – front page displays: Front page displays
    Your latest posts

    A static page (select below)

    Posts page:

    When I click on the options it says to select… Only option to click is My Story. The home page is gone.
