Removing 'Edit'

  1. Hello Bloggers.

    Need your help please.. How do I remove the word 'Edit' in my Home page.

    Thanks guys..

    The blog I need help with is

  2. "Edit" on your homepage (or other places) will disappear when you log out of your account. For example, I cannot log in to your account, so when I view your page, I cannot see "Edit" below the posts. Non users cannot see the word.

    Log out, then take a look at your blog. You won't see an option to edit.

    The "Edit" is there for your convenience when you are logged in to your account and, let's say you suddenly notice a HUGE typo… Because you are logged in you quickly click "edit" and fix it right away. Whew!!

  3. Log out of your account

    Edit only appears if you have edit rights to something. Visitors will not see the 'Edit"

  4. ~~auxclass! Happy November, hey!

  5. Morning Morning to you to Tess

    We had 60 mph ++ winds yesterday - bit exciting, one of the floating bridges was shut down and the ride on the bridge was so rough that people could not drive their cars off the bridge for a couple of hours

  6. The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
    of the big lake they called “Gitche Gumee.”
    The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead
    when the skies of November turn gloomy.

  7. Thanks Tess, Auxclass.. I have a bad habit of not logging out

    November is special, guys. It's my birth month. That's why I have Halloween face!

  10. Thanks Once again Ms Time Theft... for being a part of your time.. Precious!

    Have launch my blog at However appropriate widgets are not yet in placed and and SEO is not done yet.

  11. I don't know what you mean by the SEO is not done yet. SEO plugins do not create optimized sites or even optimized content. Bloggers do that. There is no FTP access here and we cannot upload any plugins. Please return to

  12. @danedalvarad - first things first - you call your WordPress.COM a "test blog" and have a domain name you are telling folks that will be the "real" site - one problem - the domain name does not seem to be registered - so you might want to register the name before someone else does - would have only taken me a few minutes to spike your plans

  13. Sorry to confuse you.. It simply means I have not reviewed keywords and all the other stuff to be SEO-friendly.. I have not even applied widgets yet.

    The other thing to apologize the site is


  14. Auxclass,

    The correct URL is

    'TEst Blog' is misinterpreted. I meant it's on a soft launch, will do improvements as I go along and see how it goes. If get some trafffic, I will migrate to self-hosting, thus it's a 'test'

  15. If you get some traffic on your URL, you will lose it when you migrate to This is why we typically recommend if you're considering a custom domain or moving soonish, get the custom domain up IMMEDIATELY. That way all the incoming links go to instead of, and when you do move hosts, those links follow you. Otherwise, you start again from pagerank zero.

  16. Ms Theft of Time,

    Per se, plugins DO NOT make sites rank high in SEO (and you are right) but a plugin could be used as an analytical tool to assist me in evaluating how visible my site would be. It's just what I meant.

    Thanks for responding

  17. Thanks Raincoaster..

    That's okey.. I'd be willing to start again with a self-hosting for as long as I have learned the tricks of the trade along the way in trying it first in hosted solution. One thing, it's FREE!. I mean rather than shelling out some money (for web hosting and domain name) when I am still struggling to learn. And the best way to learn is by experience that's why I plunged int hosting it in wordpressDOTcom.
