    I'm new to using wordpress at the npo I volunteer for. I login to wordpress and add a post to whichever category it belongs under, but when I upload that the url shows up like:

    http://www.myexamplesite.com/samplepages/news and events

    what am I doing wrong?

    HI -

    Try going to your dashboard, click on appearance, select customize, select static front page and change the posts page to "select" or whatever page you want to display.

    It seems to already be set up that way, but it is under "settings>reading" that I see those options. It says it is set to custom with news-events being the defined page. It has the front page marked as static.

    It is literally coming up as I described above. New posts have the "samplepages" in the url. No idea why.
