    I would so appreciate help, thank you in advance. What/where is the fixit thing, place, method for this: In Dashboard I deleted all my pages. Intended to “start over” with my theme because I messed it up so badly, because I’m just learning, and now the “root page” or “default page” or whatever it’s called, is gone, and so this gets displayed:

    Oops! That page can’t be found.
    It looks like nothing was found at this location. Maybe try one of the links below or a search?
    Blog url: http://beverlytheunis.wordpress.com/

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

    There is only one page that we can post to in any blog and we cannot prevent any posts we publish from appearing on that one page. By default it’s the front page of the blog that all posts appear on.

    The 404 (page not found) error message on the front page of your blog appeared because you deleted the placeholder Hello World post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/not-found/ As soon as you publish a post, not a page it will disappear. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    This tutorial will help with starting over http://learn.wordpress.com

    The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. If you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page “Welcome” for your site and a “Blog” page for posts. After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading and make the designation change and click “save changes”.

    In the event that you created a static front page and failed to designate a page for your posts to appear on see > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/
