I have WordPress all set up, can log in, and go to my blog by opening localhost/wp.php in IE.
But there are none of the buttons that are described here -
For instance, "Now it's time to start writing! Click on the 'Write' Menu option. What's displayed is your Editing Area (follow that link for a more complete description of what's shown). "
I have no menu, much less a Write option.
This is tantalizing. Please help a totally new and confused blogger. (My blog is set up on my own pc, not on the web).
