random issue

    So when I click on my about page for some reason all my post are going there and its like I don’t have an about page please help. I need help as soon as possible please its for my WordPress class I took at Clark College

    The blog I need help with is zac1921.wordpress.com.



    Pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ are static and are for content that rarely changes. They sit outside of the blog structure and you cannot post to multiple pages in any blog. There is only one main page for posts http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/ in a blog and all posts will display on the main blog page. There is no way to exclude posts from the main posts (blog) page.

    The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ 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.
    Choice 1 static front page
    Choice 2 running page for all posts on front page
    If you choose a static front page then you have to create two pages as I said above. After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/ and make the designation change and click “save changes”.



    That looks wacky to me and I don’t know why it would be happening. I flagged this for staff attention.



    You have set “Home” as your front page and “About Zac” as your posts page, that’s why when you click on “About Zac”, it shows your posts instead of that page. This support article explains how to set up a static front page: http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/

    If you create a page called as “Posts” or “Blog” (or anything else you’d like) and set is as the Posts page under Settings > Reading, the “About Zac” page will display the information on that page (rather than posts).
