Why does my blog display "This is somewhat embarrassing, isn't it?"
Hello there – Whenever I try to activate a new theme for a new blog (spotifyfit.wordpress.com), the page keeps displaying “This is somewhat embarrassing, isn’t it? It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps searching can help.” I have another blog (musicismydrugofchoice.wordpress.com) whose theme works just fine. Although I haven’t tried to change it as of late. Could you please advise me on how to correct this situation? Thanks – Krishna
The blog I need help with is spotifyfit.wordpress.com.
As soon as you publish a post not a page the error message will be gone. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
In the Suburbia theme the “S” on the top left corner is the header image that you can replace with one of your own. The custom header image is 155 by 155 (width, height). That header image can be replaced here > Appearance > Header.
Featured images sizes are critical to display.
On the main page, Suburbia doesn’t display regularly inserted images. Regularly inserted images only display when a post is viewed on its own page – not on the front page.
To have front page image display you need to set a featured image to each post and make each post a sticky post. Note that the size of the featured image does matter. Featured image sizes are critical to display. The featured image works best with images at least 350 by 248 (width, height) – smaller images will not work.

If you don’t see the Featured Image module on your Add New or Edit Post page, please make sure you’ve selected Featured Image in your Screen Options. http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options
