  • Hello Folks,

    WordPress amateur here! I am trying to re-build my website after changing host and have designed my homepage. When I Preview the page it looks exactly as I wish it to, so I pressed ‘Update’.

    However, when I visit my site ( I just get the ‘Hello World’ first blog post.

    Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

  • Hello World is a Post and it sounds like you created a Page. Two different post types.

    Not sure what Theme you are using but try this (based on Twenty Eleven)

    1. Log In
    2. Go to Dashboard/Appearance/Menus
    3. From your Menu control panel add your page to the Nav Bar (which probably currently has “Home” and “Sample Page”.
    4. Refresh and you should see your newly created page.

    Note – there should be a section called Pages where you can add pages to the menu

    Thanks Dave!

    I am a super-newbie so you really helped…!
