    Hi! I just posted my second Post and I don’t see it following my first one on the Blog. What did I do wrong?

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

    At a glance it looks like you’ve setup a “static” homepage and a menu with a link to “Blog”. The menu isn’t setup correctly insofar that Blog points to – https://exampleworkpresscom.wordpress.com/2015/09/02/25/ … which is an individual blog post, not “the blog itself”

    Therefore, if you haven’t already I’d suggest setting up a new page simply called “blog”, with no content, publish it. Change your menu item “Blog” to point to https://exampleworkpresscom.wordpress.com/blog … and then ensure that your settings are correct as described here :
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/

    Cheers

    Thanks Don!

    I changed the setting so it doesn’t have a static page. Now the site goes directly to the Blog. I’ve attempted to create a Blog Page for my menu but it keeps coming up with a “Post” add instead of a “Page” add. Seems to happen whether I go through Posts or Pages to add.

    Don,

    I think I’ve got it! Although I’ve created the “Blog” Page on the menu, I think I linked it up wrong with the posts. I’m working on it.
    thanks!!

    Sorry! I still can’t figure out how to get the Real Blog onto the Menu Blog. The Real Blog does come up first now that I removed the Static Page.

    @qmarylou – you’re welcome :)

    Once you’ve set the “homepage” to be the blog, you need to change the “blog” link on your menu to http://exampleworkpresscom.wordpress.com/ which will bring you back to the blog … and delete the page called “blog” you won’t need that anymore.

    Either that, or delete the page called “blog” and delete the menu item called “blog” …

    Cheers
