    I have a page that I cannot delete – any ideas? I have deleted all existing pages thinking to start again but it still appears on the “live Blog” has a link to an empty page view but is not seen in the Dashboard Pages area. So any ideas from you would help

    The blog I need help with is dreamin2.wordpress.com.

    SHOUTING! is rude and your issue has nothing whatsoever to do with the topic in this thread.

    I’m sorry but we Volunteers answering support questions have no role to play in this process. This is between you and Staff. You have a warning notice with a link in it — please click that link as it works at all times (even when the regular contact form is closed). There’s also a contact form you can use to reach them at the bottom of this page http://en.support.wordpress.com/suspended-blogs/ If you have already contacted Staff, the ToS department definitely received your request. Please be patient as they’ll be getting back to you as soon as they can. Mistakes can be made but as a policy, we are asked to refrain from discussing ToS issues on the public forums.

    Thankyou for getting back to me, I did not think these things worked. No I did not use the link you refer to. I am still getting to grips with it all so please bare with me. I was working out how to add more pages and got mixed up with creating a custom menu which \i eventually realised I did not need, yet. In the process i created new page tabs along the top. it now seems i have a tab marked home with no link to that page. So really if I can recreate the link that would be fine or else delete altogether. Hope this makes sense to you. I do hope you get back as it would be good to keep same dreamin2 and not start all over again. Thanks

    If you’re talking about the blog linked to your username, the Home tab is ok: it links to your blog front. But you have no posts, so your blog front has nothing to show, hence the “Not Found” message.

    No this cannot be surely. In the dashboard this Home page does not exist but does so on the LIVE page so I cannot undertake any changes. I have created a new Home2 page which has everything up front and can be changed in the dashboard. I have done something and cannot work out what it was and how to correct it

    No, this can be surely. The Home tab is a built-in link to your blog front, not a static page such as those you can create in Pages > Add New or edit in Pages > All Pages. By default, your blog front displays your latest posts. To “correct” things you need to delete the useless “Home2” page you created and just publish posts.

    If you’d rather have your blog front display an intro page instead of your latest posts, again you need to delete the “Home2” page, create the intro page, create another page for your posts, then go to Settings > Reading and set the intro page as your front page and the other page as your posts page.

    The wordpress and theme software build the “home” page, the page that displays your posts, dynamically and on the fly as requested from the visitor’s browser. The page does not exist until a browser requests it.
