    Hi, I am not sure what I did, but on my site I somehow managed to delete the information on the first page of the site and can’t seem to figure out how to edit it. It says under the header “not found” and the information in the archive couldn’t be found. There is also no edit button at the bottom like the rest of the pages. Our “home” page has the address …..wordpress.com/home. When you click on “home” then stuff shows up. I’m not sure how to fix this. Please help!

    Thank you for your time and assistance.

    Kind regards,
    Heather

    re: front page error message such as …

    Nothing Found
    It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps searching can help.

    As soon as you publish a post not a page the error message will be gone. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    Publish a Post > http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/#publish-a-new-post
    Edit a Post > http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/

    Publish a Page > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/#create-a-new-page
    Edit a Page > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/edit-pages-screen/

    On the bottom of your Admin page you will find a link to the 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.

    What I posted above is the same for every new blog. You have created Pages – not Posts http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    By default the front page of your blog displays all published posts (not pages) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. That is for the convenience of your returning visitors, who come to read your latest post, and who are not likely to be happy with being compelled to click through the same static page with the same blah, blah, blah on it every time they visit the blog looking for the latest post.

    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 http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/

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

    Thank you for the information and the reference links! I appreciate it!

    I didn’t see your first post before I posted the second (sorry).
    Have a great day!
