    https://myamericangenealogy.wordpress.com/ has technically already launched, it’s just set as Private.

    You can make it Public following this guide: https://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/

    Those settings are grayed out and I can’t select them.

    Hm, that doesn’t make much sense.

    First, please make sure that your browser is up to date: https://browsehappy.com/

    If it is not, please try updating your browser or switching to a different browser.

    If it is, please do these two things:

    1. Try clearing your browser’s cache and cookies.

    2. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.

    Please let us know how each step goes for you, and which browser (and version of) you’re using if you’re still having trouble.

    Tried another browser. The options were still grayed out. I tried to launch the sit again and got to the plan options, but there was no free option listed.

    If you don’t see a free option, it means you chose a custom domain, since those require a paid plan.

    Would you please use https://snipboard.io/ to share a screenshot of what you’re seeing?

    Oh, just click the big “Launch Site” button in your first screenshot, and then the “Continue with your free site” link on the plans page. :)

    Thanks so much. It was right in front of my face. I guess I need new glasses.
