How to get rid of the "Hello world! Welcome to WordPress..." message? (5 posts)

    You know the page visitors get after posting a comment for the first time. The one that reads:

    " Hello world!

    Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging! "

    Please tell me how to just make the page refresh and show the new comment instead of this page appearing.

    You should be able to delete that post from the post manager & it should go away :) Also, make sure your new post is published & not a draft/etc. Hope this helps :)

    When I deleted that post, I find that when I go to my "home page", I get the "Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here" message. I'm having difficulty figuring out how to restore my "home" page on my WP blog... Any clues? Thank you in advance.

    you should post something now to display your entries in your main page.

    or check your setting - reading
    ur-blog/wp-admin/options-reading.php

    probably displaying a static page.
