    Im trying to go through the instructions and im stuck right at the beginning. I got my link to my new site from Blue Host and entered my username and pw.

    It then came up with a screen which i THINK is the admin page... but in the instructions on Word Press it says i should see an icon where i can 'view'my site... I dont see it.. am i on the right page?

    Did you give your site a name in Settings -> General?

    Then I suggest that you do so. You should then see your site's name in the upper left of your Dashboard. That name acts as the link to your site.

    No - you are reading some older documentation.
