    Why can I not publish my posts? I have confirmed my email twice now, & I never have the button to publish on my dash board, it’s just to save draft. What am I doing wrong?

    The blog I need help with is yoder5alive.wordpress.com.

    What is the URL of the blog please? You must be logged in as Admin http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#administrator under the exact same username account that registered the blog to access the blog’s dashboard and publish posts without Admin approval. Are you the person with the username account that registered the blog? Are you logged in as Admin?

    Are you only a contributor on the blog? If so, you’ll have to save your post as pending until an editor or administrator approves your post and publishes it.

    Sorry @timethief. We must’ve been typing simultaneously.

    I can’t post mine either. I am Admin, the only user, etc. I have ‘posts’ typed but when I look at the front page of my site, there’s nothing there.

    Is someone available to help us? I’m very new to this, and getting very frustrated. I have 9 posts sitting in DRAFTS, and none of them showed me a PUBLISH button :(

    While you are waiting will you please clarify whether or not these drafts are scheduled to publish at a later date? This image may be helpful http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/schedule-a-post/ Did you try to edit the drafts and change the visibility setting to Public and then click the big blue Publish button?

    Hi, I’m having the exact same problem. Confirmed email twice but still get the “Please conform your email address” message.

    Can’t publish any posts since I don’t see any “Publish” button, only Save Draft and Move to Trash.

    Getting a bit frustrated.

    Thanks

    Hi dinayoder1 and posadaalejandro, your email addresses still aren’t confirmed in our system. Please try the following steps to confirm them:

    First, please make sure you’re logged in to your WordPress.com account. Then, please open the confirmation email from us and copy the link from that email. You can paste that link in your browser window and hit Enter to confirm your email address and activate your account.

    If that doesn’t work for you, please let me know here and I can help further.

    @ janetllopas, I see that your email address is confirmed and you’ve published a number of blog posts on your blog now. If you have any other questions, please start a new forum thread and we can help you there. Thanks!
