Why can't I edit the "about" page?

    When I click on the “edit” link for the “about” page nothing happens. I cant edit the “about” page. It just gets stuck in a thinking mode and nothing happens.

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



    Provided you are logged in under the exact same username account that registered the blog you can edit any page > Dashboard > Pages > All Pages > About
    hover over the page title and click the edit link.

    On the bottom of your Admin page you will find a link to the step by step 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 for this – it worked. But it still seems there is a problem with the “edit” link which is provided on the actual page itself. It claims that this link will take you somewhere that will allow you to edit and doesn’t work. But I was able to make the change I wanted following your advice.



    You’re welcome.

    Note that I’ll also tag this thread for Staff to take a look at the edit link. Please subscribe to this thread so your are notified when they reply.




    Hi there!

    Are you talking about the Edit link at the bottom of the page here:


    When I click that I am taken to page editor of your About page. If you don’t see this, can you send me a screenshot of the page you are taken to, so I can better understand the issue. You can simply upload the screenshot to your Media Library, like any other image, and I’ll be able to access it from there.

    The page at the following link has some helpful tips for taking screenshots:
