    That Admin [edit] link is visible only to you when you are logged in. No one else can see it or use it. It’s for your convenience.

    Thanks for the quick response. That’s what I thought but then I tried to link the blog to my newsletter and website – and the url – shows the same “edit entry”. I can’t view the blog when I’m not logged in as it doesn’t show up so I can’t test it.

    So frustrating – I liked my own page and went back through my email to view the post- was not logged in to WordPress – and “edit entry” is visible. What am I doing wrong?

    How are you accessing your blog (desktop, laptops, ipad, iphone, etc.) ?

    I can’t see the Admin [edit] link on your blog using Firefox 15 and I think you may be the only one who can see it. I’ll flag this thread for Staff and they will take a look at your blog.

    Will you please try logging out, clearing your browser cache and cookies http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050 rebooting your computer then viewing your blog again without logging in?

    @balancedyoga: sorry about the frustration. I viewed your blog with a couple of different browsers while logged out, and I don’t see the “edit this entry” link when logged out. An easy way to determine whether you are logged in or not is to check if you see a grey admin navigation bar at the top of the page, with a “W” logo on the left and your gravatar and nickname on the right.

    If you are still running into this issue, could you please upload a screenshot to your media library that shows you as logged out and the “edit this entry” link visible, and let me know which browser you are using? Here is how to make a screenshot:

    Now I realized that I published a page not a post – so I added a post and deleted the page – what is the new URL? The one that I used indicated “page could not be found. Thank you so much for all your help.

    Why am I getting a 404 error page not found!

    I do not see a 404 (page not found) on the blog linked to your username. I’m using Firefox 15.0.1.

    I included the blog link on my website – and when I click on it it gives me the 404 not found page. What URL are you using? Does it go to the post or page?

    This is your Home page link http://balancedyoga.wordpress.com/
    This is your link to the static page titled “beyond dualities” http://balancedyoga.wordpress.com/beyond-dualities-2/
    Are you clear on the differences between Pages (for static content that rarely changes) and Posts? http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    I included the blog link on my website

    Are you referring to another site that’s not hosted by WordPress.com?

    I am clear on the difference – and in my haste to get it up and running I started with a page – which was my error. I then had some time to fix it and transferred the information to posts – that is when the error message showed up in my link from my website back to the blog. Does that make sense?

    I included my wordpress URL on my website so that people could read the posts. So the URL should be linked to the posts.

    Until you post the actual link starting with http:// that you click and get a 404 on I cannot click it and tell you what I experience.
