posts not appearing on front page
My posts are not appearing on my front page. There is a message that says well this is embarrassing we can’t fine the pages you need. Post ttitles are listed under a recent posts category.
Did you know that as soon as you publish a post not a page the error message will be gone? http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
Are you clear on the differences between posts and pages?
By default the front page of your blog displays all published posts (not pages) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. That is for the convenience of your returning visitors, who come to read your latest post, and who are not likely to be happy with being compelled to click through the same static page with the same blah, blah, blah on it every time they visit the blog looking for the latest post.
However, if you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page called for example “Welcome” for your site and a “Blog” page for posts. To do that create two pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/
After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading and make the designation change and click “save changes”.
A static page (select below)
On the bottom of your Admin page you will find a link to the Learn WordPress.com blogging Tutorial prepared by Staff. http://learn.wordpress.com/
The support documentation is all found at the Support link http://en.support.wordpress.com which is also on the bottom of your Admin page.
Thanks timethief, your advice helped. I found the front page info you referred. I think I may have accidently set my front page to static and that was causing my problem. Anyway, all is well now. Great advice.
