Where are my pages?

  1. Hi, I just created the blog today and added four pages. But I don't see the pages displayed publicly. So I was confused. When I bring up the blog, I thought the reader would be able to seamlessly go from page to page. So I must have missed an instruction somewhere. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Troubleshooting – My Pages aren’t appearing
    They must be public pages – not private and not drafts so check the page visibility setting
    Public – The page will be visible to everyone.
    Protected – The page is protected with a password you set. Only people who have the password can view a protected page.
    Private – Pages are only visible to blog Editors and Administrators. Private pages are not visible in Reader, feeds, or in any search. A page can be private without being password protected.

    If you have created a custom menu then add the Page to it.
    Note that you can enable this on your custom menu settings at the bottom of the page:
    Menu Settings
    Auto add pages
    __ Automatically add new top-level pages to this menu

  3. Thx for the quick response. I just checked, the pages are checked as public. I must describing the problem wrong. but when I'm here, I thought there would be a page listing.

  4. This is a post

    Please this please Post vs. Page

    (1) There is only one page we can post to in any blog. By default the front page of the blog is the Page that displays all posts in your blog.
    (2) The static pages we bloggers create do not automatically update.
    (3) 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 first

    After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading and make the designation change and click “save changes”.

    A static page (select below)
    Front page:
    Posts page:

  5. "Please this please" was meant to be "Please read this"

  6. Even more confused now. Think I'll dump my original blog/site, and start over. maybe I can catch on. Thx anyway.

  7. Are you thinking that you want categories pages that different posts on different subjects appear on? If you are then read what follows.

    Only the dynamic pages like Archives, Categories and Tags created by the software when we publish a post will update automatically update with new posts. Although there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts (not pages) and we cannot post to more than that one page, we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.

    This guide will walk you through how to create category pages for your blog, to display groupings of similar posts on pages other than your front page.

    Create a custom menu
    Add dynamic categories and sub-categories pages to it
    Create order and sub-menus (dropdowns)

    Here's a link to my post on this

    There are many common errors, misunderstandings and misconceptions when creating custom menus and there are some tweaks you can use to improve your custom menu as well.

  8. It's really not so difficult. Just start with and go from there. Don't delete anything because if you do, it's permanently gone.
