Getting to static page (3 posts)

    I am confused. I tried to find an answer to my problem before posting on the board but I am so confused I am not even sure where to look for an answer anymore.

    I am new to WordPress and I installed a theme. The theme has a Home tab and an About tab. I am creating some static pages to add to my site and I cannot figure out how to display them when you view the site. I tried to learn about permalinks thinking that was my problem but that only confused me more. I read about permalinks and my settings has the default setting, but I do not see any permalinks on the page that I created. I am not even sure if the problem has anything to do with the permalinks or if it is a WordPress problem or a Theme problem. I did write the theme owner too but as of yet have gotten no response.

    Can anyone tell me what I need to do for my pages to be viewed or direct me to where I can go to find out how to view my pages? I did mark them as a subpage under the About page but that didn't help either. Thank you very much for any information you can give me.

    Change to the WordPress Default Theme and you should see Pages in the sidebar. Pages are usually displayed in a theme's header.php or sidebar.php file using the template tag, wp_list_pages().

    If using Widgets add the Pages widget to your sidebar.
