WordPress WordPress Basics Managing Content in WordPress Comments in WordPress

First page of WordPress site?

I'm trying to add a comment to my WordPress site using the directions in the "Comments in WordPress" video. It says to log out and then go to the site again, and it shows the blog post(s) appearing when he goes to the site. When I go to my site, I see the Home page (which I haven't set up yet) and no links to get me to the blog posts. I can search for something in the post's name, and then I'll see the blog post. But shouldn't it be displaying the blog posts page when the user first comes to the site? What am I missing here?

Thanks, Vicki

Hi Vicki - this is a simple fix, as you say you're wordpress site is showing a static front page rather than the latest blog posts - go into your site's settings > reading and then you will see the first option for what the front page displays - hit the right radio check button and save. That should solve your problem.

Hope this helps.
